Velox Cables and Gigabit Accelerator Enhance Display’s for TV Shootout Judging
HOLLY HILL, Fla. – July 19, 2016 – Metra Home Theater Group, a leading provider of home theater products and accessories for the integration community, announces their participation at CE Week’s TV Shootout June 22-23 in New York City. During the 12th Annual TV Shootout, Metra Home Theater provided its Velox Cables and Gigabit Accelerators to deliver consistent high quality content to the all the Ultra HD displays participating in TV judging event.
Metra Home Theater’s Velox Cable and Gigabit Accelerator were used in conjunction with AVProConnect’s 8×8 Matrix Switching System. Velox Cables support the latest generation of HD, Ultra-HD and 4K video applications with 18 Gb/s HD signal for higher resolutions, frame rates and colors over HD digital interconnects while the multi-award winning Ethereal HDM-GA1 Gigabit Accelerator allows the setup to utilize existing in-wall passive HDMI cables up to 17 meters in length to upgrade and support full 4K/60, 4:4:4.
The most challenging aspect of the install during the TV Shootout was distributing the same signal to each TV in HD, UHD and UHD with HDR, while distributing a signal to each TV in the proper format, timing, bit depth and color space with proper HDR signal and verification of the actual signal bandwidth in Gb/S. With the Velox Cables and Gigabit Accelerator, each of the Ultra HD TV’s, which were purchased off the shelf through open market channels, were able to deliver high-quality video distribution needed for judging. Once setup was completed, industry’s leading TV experts, reviewers and calibrators gathered to select the best TV display, where the LG OLED65G6P achieved the highest rating.
“We were honored to be invited to participate in CE Week’s TV Shootout and integrate our robust solutions with the latest technology in Ultra HD TVs,” said Jessy Crabb, general manager of Metra Home Theater Group. “Our Velox Cables and Gigabit Accelerator allow TVs to display at their highest capacity, which truly evens the playing field when you’re judging a range of TVs.”
