HD Connectivity and AWE Europe used the AWE Expo event to announce a joint training and sales collaboration to offer HDanywhere™ 4K HDMI® distribution and URC Control products to the UK custom installation channel. With AWE’s position as a leading supplier of Ultra-HD 4K displays, 4K-scaling AVRs and Blu-ray players, alongside URC Control products, the addition of HDanywhere’s 4K-compatible Modular video distribution system to its portfolio makes perfect sense. HD Connectivity’s ‘HDanywhere’ brand is an HDBaseT Alliance member company, and the only full-fledged British manufacturer in the ‘HD Distribution’ product category. HD Connectivity HDanywhere 4K HDMI Stuart Tickle, Managing Director of AWE comments: “The fact that URC training is free to any interested integrators and there is no minimum initial hardware order, is attracting a lot of interest from installers who want to offer something that sets them apart from the rest. By teaming up with HD Connectivity, we are able to reach a wider audience with our URC training and Complete Control product line-up. The collaboration also allows us to offer our dealers a high quality HD video distribution product. It took us a long time to settle on the right partner, but after evaluating HDanywhere’s latest Modular system and getting to know the team, the decision was easy.” HDanywhere™ Modular was recently voted ‘Best Video Distribution Solution’ in SVI Magazine’s Trade Awards. It is a customisable, Ultra HD 4K compatible, HDMI® matrix switcher that uses a patented system of interchangeable input/output (I/O) module options. This enables bespoke built HD distribution systems, perfectly matched to the individuality of every project in terms of size and specification. Integrators are able to specify which signal transmission technology is used for each TV location. Modules include HDMI®, 100m HDBaseT™ Pro, 60m HDBaseT™ Lite out and now HDBaseT™-in, all of which can be mixed and matched in a single system, thus eliminating expensive unused capacity and unnecessary functionality. “AWE’s stunning new show apartment and training facilities provide an accessible southern location to experience and learn about HDanywhere,” says Chris Pinder, Managing Director of HD Connectivity. “Integrated with URC control, it is a compelling proposition for the end-user, achieving more, with less hardware and cabling, particularly when utilising CEC to provide neater control of sources and displays over the HDMI cable.” From today AWE customers will be able to purchase HDanywhere Modular systems via AWE. In addition, a range of URC Complete Control products is available to purchase via HD Connectivity. For more information on AWE and HDanywhere visit: www.awe-europe.com www.hdanywhere.co.uk
