Distributed HD video enables the connection of up to SIX HD video sources, all in the central cupboard so that items such as Sky boxes do not clutter rooms. The user can select the source they want in any of the rooms outlined above. This means that sources can be shared, recorded media on a Sky box can be seen on any TV, TV can be paused in one room and then resumed in another, etc. In all of these rooms the sound from TV sources can come through the ceiling speakers making for a much better, stereo sound than that normally experienced from a modern, flat TV.
