CEDIA, HDMI, LLC Team Up
CEDIA announced Monday that it has teamed up with HDMI Licensing, LLC, in order to "explore joint opportunities and collaborate on viable solutions" for the organization's members. The two groups hope to develop a training program and deal with interoperability issues.
The partnership grew out of a recent CEDIA membership survey that found most CEDIA members use HDMI in their installations, but many have run into issues with the technology.
“The results of this survey point to the reason why CEDIA leadership is committed to working with HDMI Licensing and CEDIA members to improve these issues,” CEDIA CEO Utz Baldwin said as part of the announcement. “Both organizations see the value of building reciprocal training programs and technical references to help CEDIA members succeed in their HDMI installations. We are eager to work with the HDMI organization and provide CEDIA members with a viable solution to help their businesses.”
Training events will be held in several cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago; dates will be announced at a later time.
