Football season is here, and in many parts of the country, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s especially true here in North Texas — home to the MilesTekheadquarters and a culture that prefers to watch its football on big, big screen TVs.
Just look at the 38-foot-wide high-definition video screen that was built as part of the dazzling new $60 million dollar high school football stadium built in nearby Allen, Texas. Allen is hardly alone in the race for high school high-def: The tiny East Texas town of Carthage, Texas, added a 1,200 square-foot high-def video screen this year — the largest in prep sports — for a measly cost of $750,000. Both schools might just be taking cues from the University of Texas, whose “Godzillatron” video screen was briefly the largest in the world when it opened in 2006. Friday night football, like all types of football, is simply better when it’s blown up and in sparkling definition.
Here at MilesTek, we offer a wide range of audio/video distribution solutions that can take your game-watching experience to another level. Even if you’ll be doing the bulk of your big game watching this year either at home or at, say, a sports bar or a restaurant, the right setup can make you feel like you’re just a few rows up from the sidelines.
For example, for bar or restaurant owners, our HDMI splitters make it easy to distribute HDMI signal from one source to multiple displays — without losing video or sound quality. This allows them to show the big game on a higher number of TVs, and it gives them more design and setup flexibility. For larger spaces, our HDMI over CAT5E/CAT6 extenders make it possible to run HDMI signals up to 330 feet from an HDTV source — at a fraction of the cost of long-distance HDMI cables.
Or let’s say you prefer your football on your couch, with the remote in your hand and complete control over the gameday experience (well, how it looks and sounds, at least — we can’t do anything to affect what happens on the field). Several of our connectivity solutions, including HDMI switches, HDMI cables, and wall mounts and other racks, can enhance your entertainment setup at an affordable cost.
