Multi Point Systems (or multi room/home distribution) is a fantastic way to watch TV and use devices around the home.
From a simple coaxial TV link combining sky and freeview TV to the design and installation of a bespoke system to suite your individual requirements and specification.
Digital Freeview TV, Satellite (Sky), DAB Radio, Virgin TV, Media Server (Apple TV), games consoles, internet router and even CCTV can be combined with the system.
The multi point switch (or matrix hub) can be concealed in a discreet location and multiple outlet plates fitted in each room to allow TV's to be controlled independently.
These systems work particularly well with wall-mounted flat panel TV's, as all services are at "your fingertips" and offer a "clean look" without the need for receiver boxes.
Internal cabling and equipment can be concealed and outlet plates fitted flush to walls when necessary. External cabling can be kept to a minimum and installed discreetly.
Installations are "future proofed", allowing new devices and services to be fitted later.
Alongside all systems, when required, a data home network switch connected to your modem/router can enable broadband to be distributed to chosen rooms for uninterrupted internet access to support PCs games consoles and smart TVs.
Two examples of Multipoint Systems are HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and IRS (Integrated Reception System):
HDMI is the latest way to transmit HD quality pictures to TV's around the home. It uses HDMI over CAT5e/6/7 UTEP cabling via a matrix from which your devices are connected and transmits via network cabling around the home. This system is particularly good when only one sky or virgin cable TV box is needed, as TV pictures can still be transported to different TV's in full HD and 3-D without the need to pay for a multi room box in every room, thus saving you money. This also helps when TV's are to be wall-mounted as no boxes are required. As an added bonus, games consoles, Blu-ray DVD players/recorders etc can be added to the matrix when required.
If you already have a Sky magic eye/TV link system, we can use this to transmit independent digital free view TV alongside the new system when upgrading.
An example of a new matrix switch that we can install is Wyrestorms( a leading brand)-4inputs, 4 outputs switch.
- Entirely cabled on a single CAT5e/6/7 UTP cable.
- Ideal for properties where external cabling is required.
IRS is a type of television distribution system, combining digital satellite (including sky digital), Digital terrestrial free view TV, DAB and FM radio signals and CCTV as required.
"First class service Tony. Prompt, efficient, tidy and above all solved our internal land line telephone cabling and made it a neat job. Before the cables were mixed up from a second line that had beed disconnected some years ago."
