Telecom Signaling Industry News


[January 08, 2014]


(Cision Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CEDIA (the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) is continuing to grow its library of white papers by releasing two new documents to provide useful information on Ultra High Definition and 4K technology to home technology professionals and consumers.

With display resolutions, cables, discs and 3D technology being revamped and reworked, TV displays are becoming more detailed, lifelike and visually appealing. Ultra HD-4K technology makes use of higher pixel density, larger screens and the human eyes’ visual acuity to create a more detailed, in-depth image on display screens.

‘Understanding 4K Technology: What you need to know as an industry professional’ details what Ultra HD-4K technology is in greater detail, examines where the technology is heading and discuss what this means for CEDIA members. As well as the more general information, the white paper covers technical aspects including HDMI specification, signalling speed, Bandwidth, distribution and delivery platforms.

This document is a companion piece to CEDIA’s consumer-oriented ‘What is Ultra High Definition and Why Does it Matter?’ whitepaper.  Ultra High Definition is an important advance in home cinema technology and is one which has been integrated into many households. However, some consumers are still not clear on the features and advantages of HDTV.

The new white paper has been created in an effort to provide consumers with a clearer understanding of what Ultra High Definition is.   It addresses the terminology associated with this technology, details how it has developed over time and explains how excellent picture quality is achieved today. The document also clarifies the difference between 1080p and Ultra HD and offers advice on what Ultra HD products are available, including 4K.

These two new whitepapers are available from the CEDIA education website which can be located in the resources section at For more information, please contact: Matt Nimmons                         or                     Shereen Russell Operations Director Wildwood PR Ltd CEDIA The Stables Unit 2 Meadow Court Phoenix Park Faygate Lane St Neots    Faygate Cambridgeshire West Sussex PE19 8EP RH12 4SJ Tel: 01480 213744 Tel: 01293 851115 About CEDIA CEDIA is the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association, an international trade organisation spanning three continents with a global membership of over 3,500 companies.
