Screwed by lousy HDMI extenders

One thing I really hate is when people “economize”. Yes I know. The economy isn’t going too good but honestly, there are some things you cannot scrimp on…and that includes equipment like this. Take these cheap HDMI extenders for instance. They were hooked up to some signage PCs for a big, upmarket store. I was called there to solve a problem with flickering images on their signage screens. I suspected that it could be their extenders and I was right. I have seen these very same ones installed in many locations before and the problem with these extenders was the dodgy power supply powering them. So after I stripped them out and replaced them with better extenders from ATEN, the problem went away.

Sometimes you, owners of fine establishments, need to ask yourself this question. By scrimping on quality products, how is your message going to be sent across to your customers? Especially if you use digital signage, which is very popular these days. Think about it.
