In the past in order to have TV content, you had to either get Cable, Satellite or install this big dish in your back yard. Today, we have the Internet. With services like Hulu and NetFlix we got our first taste of streaming movies and past TV shows. Then, we got AppleTV. With Apple TV we had the same Hulu and Netflix but we had Apple Movies, Music, our Photo Libraries and other individual TV channels. Apple was providing us with movies before NetFlix and even before HBO and Showtime. They provide movies to our home earlier and with better resolution than Movies on Demand

Now, 4K resolutions comes with the latest in HDMI technology. HDMI 2.0 is the next generation of one of the most commonly used formats in home audio/video systems. This upgrade is designed to increase both frame rates and color for your 4K viewing. There's been a lot of confusion as to if you will need to switch out the old HDMI cables with new ones. After some research, it seems like the most recent version (HMDI 1.4) only needs an upgrade with its internal microchip on your devices and sources, not the cable. I think the sky is the limit with the newest technology coming out. It's crazy to know that TV technology has come so far from the original 16 frames per second rate.

After many responses to our first blog, “Home Automation is Dead”, we’ve decided to provide a follow-up.
Home Automation is alive and kicking! It has never been so fluent as today. In the past, when I met people, they would ask: “What do you do for a living?” I’d reply: "I design, install and program home automation or smart home systems". And then the puzzled look: “Huh?” After many attempts to explain this unknown field to them, I’d change my response to: “I do audio and video, like speakers, TVs or Home Theaters”. But I don’t just do audio and video. And I definitely don’t just do Home Theaters. We specialize in Smart Home Technology. We design the perfect system to integrate multiple electronic and network systems within a residence to provide easy operation and synergy of technology.

Apple is no stranger to innovating products to make them more advanced. The Apple Watch is not a new innovation since other smart watches are on the market from Samsung, LG, and others, but how different is it from its competitors?
