Keep your Electronics Safe with a Surge Protector

Oct 25, 2012

Electronics are an investment. People spend a great deal of time and money setting up offices or entertainment centers in their homes. What assurance do they have that their electronics won’t be damaged or destroyed by the very power they need to function? Few people consider the power source of their electronics to be a threat, but in many cases it can be. That’s why we recommend using a surge protector to keep your electronics safe.

The power in our homes is anything but perfect. It is subject to surges, spikes, dips, and drop offs. These variable power levels can be caused within our homes by other appliances or electronics within the circuit, or from outside of our homes due to storms or utility work. Whatever the case may be these inconsistencies must be safely treated with a surge protector to ensure your electronics are not damaged.

A surge protector can come in the form of a wall plate, a power strip, or a single plug through module. Some surge protectors also offer protection for incoming telephone and coaxial cable lines. No matter what form the surge protector takes, the function is always the same. By acting as an intermediary between the incoming power and your devices, it keeps voltage at a safe level. If your home ever experiences a serious power surge it will harm the surge protector while leaving your connected electronics safe. That’s an inexpensive way to ensure the life of your electronic investments.

Make the Most of your New HDTV: Convert your Signal to HDMI

Oct 10, 2012

New high-definition televisions are designed to offer the best picture quality for our viewing entertainment. But how do we make the most of that picture quality? Many people unknowingly connect devices to their television using low quality cables or connectors. This results in a loss of signal quality and can be upsetting to someone who bought a television specifically for its superior image quality.

So how do you make the most of your high definition television even when connecting older components? The answer is simple. Convert your connectors to HDMI. HDMI is the new standard for high definition video and audio connection. It supports full 1080p video transfer ensuring top quality video signal. If you have an older component such as a DVD player that is lacking an HDMI output, you can easily connect it to an HDMI signal conversion box. These boxes are designed to take older analog formats such as composite video, component video, or VGA connections and convert them into a digital HDMI signal.

In order to get the best picture quality we recommend converting the highest quality source signal to HDMI, this would ideally be a component video signal (the red, blue and green connectors). If Component video is not available, you can use the s-video output on your device. If nothing else is available simply use the yellow composite video signal. Remember to connect your red and white RCA stereo connectors to the conversion box as well, since your HDMI cable carries both audio and video signals.
