Other New AV Equipment

Along with our new HD Projectors and Switchers, we have also purchased four 51″ Full HD Plasma’s and two 60″ Full HD Plasma’s. Pair these beauties up with the projectors and switchers and we are able to offer you a Full HD solution. The quality is absolutely stunning. Added to that, we have invested in fibre optic cabling* that allows for the output of this high resolution video to larger distances. Great for live video feeds from camera’s and sending signal to breakaway rooms in larger conference situations.60" lg plasma screens for hire

*Due to the nature of digital signals and impedance of copper, fibre optic conversion technology is the best connection medium for DVI and HDMI signal extension. Fortunately, with digital video, both technologies use the same connector type. The DVI/HDMI digital signals are both high-speed and high-bandwidth. Typically, 1080p signal would mean 1920×1080 pixels refreshing over 40 times per second. At this high rate of speed and large bandwidth of data, impedance caused by copper begins to cause signal loss – which results in digital artifacts, pixilation and/or no picture (blue screen) – if the distance is longer than 15 feet.

720p and 1080i are better off with fibre optic connections if the distance is longer than 25 feet.
