The company responsible for licensing the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) specification has unveiled an initiative designed to help the installer community more effectively install home cinema systems connected with HDMI.
The firm also provides a knowledge base with tips and answers to help solve installation issues and questions.
HDMI is the digital connectivity platform for high-definition consumer electronics, including TVs, set-top boxes, DVD players and AV receivers.
HDMI Licensing said that installing with HDMI creates new challenges for installers accustomed to working with analogue connections.
The firm has created a resource to provide installers with the most current technical and 'how-to' information with contributions from recognised leaders in the installer community.
"The installer community represents a critical part of the HD services ecosystem and is facing a fundamental change in the technologies they use to provide the highest quality entertainment experience," said Leslie Chard, president of HDMI Licensing.
"HDMI is essential to this new technology offering. As the agent responsible for HDMI, and the most direct source of information regarding HDMI, we recognise the need to provide installers with resources that will help them."
