In each room, we took a similar approach to wiring and additional equipment. Category 5e HDMI over Ethernet cable was run through the walls to handle the HDTVs, terminating in closets where the client’s cable boxes were hidden. We used infra-red signal extenders to allow remote control of the equipment through the walls and closet doors, and also installed an APC power filter and conditioner to protect against power surges or other issues.
Mission accomplished: full high-def video and audio setups in two rooms along with upgraded Internet connectivity – but all that’s visible are the two beautiful HDTV monitors. The work took DTV Installations 12 hours to complete, for well under $8,000 (including generous equipment discounts thanks to our authorized dealer status). And the client was delighted.
