Metra Home Theater Group (MHTG) is hosting a workshop today at CEDIA Expo featuring Jeff Boccaccio, president of DPL Labs and one of the industry’s leading experts on digital signaling solutions and HDMI, along with Brent McCall from MHTG’s technical support and product development team. This one-hour long workshop session was hosted at MHTG’s booth 1338 yesterday and again today at 1:00 PM. Both days will have the same session topic and attendees will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win new products.
Jeff Boccaccio and Brent McCall’s expertise in HDMI make them both uniquely qualified to present, “The HDMI Cable Faceoff: Which One to Use in Your MHTG Toolbox.” The workshop will teach the pros and cons of all transmission lines so custom integrators can adapt to any project’s requirements. The goal is to prevent integrators from getting stuck on problem jobs by showing when to use fiber, active and passive copper, along with the latest HDMI tools for 4K and 8K home theater systems.
Boccaccio will also showcase new innovative technology designed to fix or upgrade existing systems and help integrators get to 8K – without the bumpy ride. While no single product will work for every project encountered, there is an ideal solution for each price point, length, and requirement. A live HDMI testing demonstration will also be included in the workshop to show attendees the differences between each type of product. Knowing when to use each will help integrators be more competitive and successful in their installation projects.
“Metra Home Theater Group has a great working relationship with DPL Labs and our customers look forward to hearing Jeff at every CEDIA Expo they attend. We look to DPL Labs for their expertise and distinct leadership in the field and to also help our customers adapt to the constantly changing technology that impacts their projects,” said Jessy Crabb, MHTG’s general manager.
Workshop attendees will be entered into a drawing to win the HDM-GA2, Velox EHV-HDP18 HDMI cable or the Install Bay 50ft. fiber IB-HDAOC-050 HDMI cable. The drawing will take place on Friday at 2:00 p.m. To register online to attend this workshop, visit https://metrahometheater.com/cedia.html.

MHTG will also be launching a variety of new AV distribution, HDMI, power and retail products at the 2019 CEDIA Expo. An array of HDMI matrixes, extenders, switches, fiber tools, and next-generation repair solutions from Ethereal will be unveiled to dealers and distributors.
These new products are simple to set up and will be available in different transmission distances and resolutions, supporting up to 4K at 60Hz HDR. New Helios retail AV products will also be joining the product lineup to expand their existing power and home theater solutions. Additional new product announcements will be made closer to the show date.
