Radiient Technologies Select-4 Introduction

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) equipped audio/video devices are gaining popularity and like them or not they are quickly becoming the industry standard now and for the foreseeable future. Manufacturers of A/V receivers, pre-amps, fixed pixel display devices, front projectors, DVD players, cable boxes, satellite receivers and other devices are quickly adopting and implementing the HDMI connection on their products.

Terminating your system with HDMI connections is a very effective and neat solution for high-resolution audio/video signal transfer and system level switching. What happens when you run out of HDMI inputs or have a receiver or pre-amp that you really love that doesn't have HDMI inputs? Another common problem is many HDMI sources will not transfer high-resolution audio/video signals long distances without introducing signal degradation.

Radiient Technologies, a manufacturer located in the Silicon Valley of California has recently introduced a cost effective solution for those that have HDMI deficiencies in their systems. Radiient Technologies teams of engineers are comprised of industry veterans from many well know manufacturers such as: Silicon Image, DVDO, Apple Computer, Cisco Systems, Alpha Smart and other others. The Radiient team has authored more than thirty US patents in the consumer electronics field.
