CEDIA Expo has revealed an expanded partnership with the as a supporting organization during CEDIA Expo 2024. The 8K Association will take center stage during the event, engaging with integrators, manufacturers, distributors, and buying groups on the growing importance of 8K within the custom installation industry.

“We are excited to announce an expanded partnership with the 8K Association to elevate educational programming for attendees,” said Jason McGraw, CTS, group vice president for Emerald. “Through collaborative efforts and shared expertise, CEDIA Expo and the 8K Association aim to empower industry professionals to embrace the possibilities of 8K technology and accelerate future business opportunities for custom installation integrators, manufacturers, distributors and buying groups.”

Dedicated to educating, promoting, and advancing the rapidly evolving 8K ecosystem, the 8K Association is committed to fostering industry-wide adoption of 8K content, products and services across various sectors, from content creation and production to distribution and consumer consumption. The partnership with CEDIA aims to deliver relevant and insightful information on several 8K technology-related topics, including the significant role that 8K native, computer-generated, and upconverted content is destined to play in the future of home entertainment.

“While 8K technology is not new, its full potential has yet to be fully realized due to a lack of compatible content and distribution platforms,” said Juan Reyes, director of operations for the 8K Association. “However, the production community is now aggressively embracing 8K and recognizing its transformative capabilities. By joining forces with CEDIA Expo, we can engage industry professionals and provide them the knowledge and resources they need to navigate this evolving landscape.”

According to CE Pro, the custom installation community anticipated that nearly half (48.8%) of its growth in 2022 would be derived from audio and video-related applications and over 60% in 2023. As a result, 8K televisions, projectors and entertainment content present a key growth opportunity for the custom installation channel.
