UK distributor CIE-Group recently delivered its first HDBaseT Installer Expert Program, in partnership with HDBaseT Alliance.

The program comprised of a series of one-day courses HDBaseT technology principles, installation advice and best practices, product certification and interoperability, and featured hands-on tutorials and demonstrations. Each course was presented by director of customer experience at Valens, Ariel Marcus, alongside Martin Featherstone, CYP product manager and HDBaseT educator in training.

The event was attended by over 70 AV engineers in locations including Nottingham, Farnborough and Leeds. The course is the first of its kind in the UK, with almost 2000 delegates now located worldwide since its launch in 2014.

“Most of the questions that I’m hearing at the moment are related to HDBaseT cabling, how to connect the cables, what type of cables to use, should it be a shielded cable and will it fit all the needs. This is why training is so important to ensure installers are prepared with the most up-to-date knowledge,” commented Marcus.

Training dates for the next HDBaseT Installer Expert Program training dates will be announced soon.
