4K AND 8K: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

- A lot of new products and solutions highlight “4K” and “8K” as a key selling point, but what exactly does that mean—and how does it relate to an end user? THE NUMBERS Both 4K and 8K are classified as Ultra HD resolutions. The numbers in beginning of the names “4K” and “8K” refer to the horizontal pixel count in thousands. 8K has twice as many horizontal and vertical pixels as 4K—so how does that translate to the overall picture? The total pixel count in a 4K is 8 million pixels, or one-fourth of…

What is the difference between Continuous and Discontinuous Shielding?

- Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a continuous and discontinuous cable? You are not alone! It’s the question on EVERYONE’s mind…Rob, C2G’s technical marketing specialist, easily answered this question! Here is what he had to say.

Avoiding Cabling Disasters

- In our cabling disaster post we talked about how racks quickly become a mess of cables, and what helps contribute to creating the mess. In this post, we’ll cover the communities on the opposite end of that spectrum who value, and actively work to make their racks as clean as possible – both during the initial installation and for future moves, adds and changes. There is special care required upfront during the selection process of the physical infrastructure, like the racks and cable management…

Cabling Disasters and What Causes Them

- Cabling disasters, network spaghetti, these are just two terms that describe something that’s all too common within the IT industry. When networking is done right, it can be a beautiful thing; however, when the cabling isn’t managed properly, disaster tends to strike.

These disa…

Thoughts On 4K, HDMI, Signal Bandwidth and the AV Signal Quality Triangle

- One thing all marketing plans need is a number. Big or small, the size doesn’t matter. Just so long as there’s a number, and ideally a single number, that can be said to correlate somehow with a product’s quality then markets will use it.

It doesn’t seem to matter if the correlation is ambiguous, or even outright misleading. Sixty years ago, the audio…
