  • Digital Video at Length: Extending Uncompressed Digital Video Connections to 100 Meters and Beyond - With analog infrastructure all but gone, the ability to deploy point-to-point connectivity solutions that support digital A/V at critical middle distances from 20 meters to 100 meters is vital. In this presentation, participants will explore the payload characteristics, connectivity topology and essential technologies realized in HD-over-UTP and HDBaseT connectivity solutions.
  • How to Effectively Use RF Protection - The manufacturers of RF filters provide to the industry a myriad of devices that are very effective if they are used correctly. The problem is that many technicians and engineers do not know what filter or device needs to be used under which circumstances. This session will explain the devices that can be used for which purposes as well as when they are effective and when they are not.
  • Introduction to RFID - RFID is considered the next big phase in information technology evolution. This course will cover the essentials of RFID technology.
