Cable spaghetti

At home, I have a dedicated bag for cables. It started with just a few: power cables, audio cables, Ethernet, you know the sort. Then came the USB cables in all forms, additional audio cables to comply with other connectors, a whole load of video cables – HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, Component, SCART (yes, I still have them), … and a lot of models that transform one standard into another. Then there are a number of cables of which I have no clue what they are for. I keep them just in case. My ‘cable collection’ now amounts to about 50 (a rough guess, it would be madness to try counting them properly). What started as a neatly ordered set of cables, evolved into some sort of cable spaghetti over the years. Do you have a bag like that as well? I know a lot of people who do…

Wireless devices have been around for a couple of decades now, and I don’t see anybody complaining about them. In my house, I didn’t bother to cut through walls to install Ethernet wires. I simply use a wireless router to get online from any location. I don’t have any problems that my fixed telephone is cordless (and therefore not really “fixed” anymore). And when I wanted music in my kitchen, I turned to a wireless streaming solution. So why, WHY, are there still wires in the meeting room?

USB is a commonly accepted standard – one of the few. For wired devices, things are less clear. For video alone, we have HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA (yes, it’s still around), and a few others. And it seems like the ones available in the meeting room are never the ones I have on my laptop. Or they are available – on the other end of the table. Wireless devices are a blessing in these cases. When ClickShare came around, offering a USB-dongle that wirelessly connects with the screen, I immediately felt the excitement. Because it doesn’t only eliminate the chance for cable spaghetti, it also gives the flexibility to share content to the screen from any location in the meeting room – plus a series of additional features. If you’ve never tried it, just do. You’ll feel the freedom and never want to meet without it.

Spaghetti is my 4-year old son’s absolute favorite dish and I like it almost just as much. I only hate it when the spaghetti consists of cables – and comes without the Bolognese sauce...
