Can you tell the difference between an original painting and a high-quality print? Today’s printing technology makes the differences minuscule to the average eye. However, an aesthete may notice that the art print is missing characteristic textures, vibrancy, and life that thrives in the original.

The same can be said about music. In the world of digital music, lossless audio presents every nuance and detail of an artist’s original studio recording, and compressed audio deletes data, or some of those tiny details, to make it easier to transfer over the internet. Most ears likely won’t hear the difference between lossless and compressed audio. But for some, that small difference matters.

With Control4 OS 3, you can now enjoy the detail, timbre, and texture of high-resolution audio on your whole-home sound system. Read below to learn what makes music hi-res and what else you’ll need to make the most of studio-quality music in your Salt Lake City, UT home.

By Elizabeth Hodapp | November 16, 2020 | Comments Off on 3 Advantages of Using Video Distribution within Your Business

The signage throughout your business serves several important purposes. You may use signage to promote deals in your retail store, present the menu in your restaurant, or provide a directory for visitors in your corporate lobby.
