All About Multi-Room Video Distribution & It’s Benefits

When you say ‘multi-room video distribution’ to the average homeowner, they may assume it is not really designed for their residential application.  It sounds so technologically advanced that it is more for a commercial application.  And, while it can certainly be used for and is great choice for commercial applications, it is also ideal for residential applications.  Multi-room video distribution enables your home’s audio and video to be easily, effectively and efficiently distributed throughout your home without multiple remotes, electronic components scattered throughout the home, and wires hanging everywhere.  It is a seamless way to declutter your home while never sacrificing the ability to watch whatever you want, wherever you want, in the comfort of your own home.

There are many different ways to achieve multi-room video distribution in your home but, far and away, one of the best ways to do so is with the assistance of excellent Control4 products and components.  Control4 sums up the what can be achieved with multi-room video distribution, “Deliver superior sound, stunning video and an incredible entertainment experience in every room throughout the house. Share your entire movie library, streaming video and satellite channels in every room—no need for set-top boxes and multiple video sources. Consolidate all of your audio and video equipment into a closet, creating a clutter-free installation.”
