Session Description : USB Type-C was released 2016 and since then it’s grown by leaps and bounds. With announced inclusion on the Apple iPhone 15 USB Type-C has embraced its “universal” moniker and is now found on virtually every laptop, tablet and smartphone worldwide. This change in connectivity creates a challenge for AV system integrators and designers. How can one port that delivers a plethora of often incompatible protocols be effectively deployed in classrooms, meeting rooms and huddle spaces?

In this fast-paced course we’ll explore USB Type-C as an AV signal transport method, examine the challenges associated with multiple user configurations, find solutions that work today and identify trends that will impact how we prepare for tomorrow.

Remember, once upon a time we hadn’t heard of HDMI. Then, just a few short years later, we had to struggle to design and deploy infrastructure that could accommodate the ever-growing need for high performance digital video in classrooms and conference rooms. That same challenge is upon us again, but this time with a much smaller and more powerful port.

USB4, Thunderbolt and USB Type-C are at the razor’s edge of AV evolution; don’t let it cut into your successful classroom and meeting room technology deployment.

****Updated: The instructor for this session, Joseph Cornwall, has just announced his retirement from Legrand and will not be available to teach this session at InfoComm. We're sorry for letting you down, but do wish Joe well when you see him on social!
