Fewer truck rolls isn't the only thing saving dealers time and money. BlueVolt and Bedrock provide online training so that integrators don't have to miss a single day at the office while taking courses and getting certifications.
On-site, installations are getting more efficient as well. Metra's EHD HDMI cable is even thinner than an iPhone cord, freeing up space in racks and shipping costs. And AVocation Systems and Control4 are packing HDMI matrix switchers with up to 32 inputs, making it possible to bring one signal to many zones.
Even programming has gotten easier. iRidium's control interface aims to provide integrators with one platform that can work with multiple devices in many different systems, and Pro Control's software enables integrators to program a remote control for several devices at once. Again, both are here to save installers time and money.
