The Home Theater Specialists of America held a three-day training session last weekend aimed at educating high-end dealers about the latest in home theater technology. Known as “Video Boot Camp” and held in Torrance, Calif., the session was the first of three that are planned, with the next two scheduled for Seattle in May and Kansas City in June.
At the meeting, dealers heard from such experts as Runco’s Pat Bradley, Joaquin Rivera and Don Stewart of Stewart Filmscreen, and Datacolor’s Mark Hunter about the latest innovations in video, and how to communicate them to customers.
Among topics of conversation were picture quality, the differences among LCD, plasma and DLP TVs, and among different aspect ratios. HTSA had previously held audio boot camps, but this was the first-ever session of its kind dealing with video specifically.
