Emerging Technologies that will Change the Future of AV

New Ideas and Technologies That Will Change The Way You Create, Communicate, Collaborate and Work

Moore's Law postulates that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. This has often been extrapolated to imply that our ability to handle large digital files and integrate ever more complex digital systems into our society also doubles at about the same rate. The reality is that some changes are happening even faster than that. The changes happening in the A/V community will have profound consequences on the expectations we have regarding communication technology. Over the next few years we will witness the final extirpation of 20th Century analog systems such as composite, component and VGA video signals. In the same way that the HDMI connector fundamentally disrupted the industry, emerging technologies such as USB Type C, USB 3.1, USB Power Delivery v2.0, HDBaseT, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 2.0 and embedded active chipsets in unexpected places will land an impactful blow. But unlike HDMI, these changes won't take 12 years to settle in. Prepare to see a new industry in half that time!
