The term CATV seems to have several ambiguous definitions. Originally it defined the cabling and antenna for the typical “Community Antenna Television”. As cable based television delivery became prominent CATV soon came to mean “Cable Television” wiring and installation. However, CATV can also mean the internal video systems used in business for any number of reasons including video conferencing and closed circuit surveillance systems. With the advent of the Internet CATV can also be a useful and high speed method of accessing the World Wide Web and other Internet sites. This new access has opened society to a whole new world of entertainment delivery, shopping and information retrieval.
Installing CATV Omaha is not necessarily a technical challenge, however it does require designing the system so the signal doesn’t bleed away and the signal gets delivered to each receiver without excessive loss. Many systems are installed in a single string where the actual receiving monitor taps into the line and carries the signal to the set. To aid against signal loss the CATV wire is a coaxial design with a single solid wire, typically copper, wrapped by an insulator and shielded with a braided ground. This ground will be connected to the various connectors to ensure a stable connection while the inner wire will usually have a contact connection inside the insulated connector. Because these connectors are rigid this type of coupling provides an excellent bridge between cable segments.
Most CATV Omaha cabling is run similar to the electrical wiring inside a home. The cable will be carried through the walls, attic, or basement ceiling to afford the most protection and is installed with the least amount of sharp angles possible. CATV comes in two standard types where the original cable delivery system used an analog signal and the newer delivery methods use a digital signal. The primary benefits for digital include better picture image, higher bandwidth and longer signal runs before the carrier signal drops out. Cable signals are capable of carrying huge amounts of data with most systems containing as many as five hundred channels although the average is often in the one or two hundred range. To ensure your system can handle this type of data make certain it is installed by a professional company such as Brase Electrical Contracting Corp.
