fibre optic tv satellite systems Many new digital TV systems are now being designed using a fibre optic fed TV system rather than the standard copper coax systems. How Does Fibre Work Fibre is a new way of providing every home within a communal building or estate with satellite TV and radio services. It is a discreet and efficient due to being distributed via a single cable to an outdoor unit at each property. Most modern home owners expect to receive their satellite TV services at more than one point in their home. Fibre IRS is the perfect solution to todays high expectations of home entertainment. The rapid technology advancements such as 3D TV HD TV and multiroom viewing finds fibre the obvious choice for providing satellite digital TV and radio to large or spaced out developments such as housing estates multiple apartment blocks holiday parks hotels hospitals retail environment and even entire villages Fibre Versus Coax The two main features of fibre relate to the removal of limitations on cable lengths traditionally found on coax systems AND the ability to connect multiple TV points from a single cable into each dwelling. Modern laser and fibre optic technology has made it viable to send the high-frequency IF satellite signals over a substantially longer distance than has ever been possible in the past using coax technology even as far as 5km For larger installations over a wide area a fibre network could provide a number of distinct advantages all of which can mean a substantial reduction in the complexity and cost versus a traditional coax installation A reduction in the number of dishes and aerials required. No street furniture or repeater cabinets required to amplify signals. No landlords power required within street furniture or street cabinets to power the amplifiers. A single fibre cable can provide multiple satellite points within each dwelling without the need for running multiple cables into each dwelling as would be the case with a traditional coax installation. Containment for cabling is vastly reduced due to the above. Future pricing later phases while the cost of copper is soaring optical cable pricing will remain stable. In many cases fibre cabling is less costly than copper. Future technology - As bandwidth demands increase rapidly with technological advances fibre will continue to play a vital role in the long-term success of telecommunications. Minimal space required for distribution equipment in common areas risers etc the space required for conventional satellite switches and amplifiers is probably as much as 5 times that required for fibre splicing. This can be a critical factor in apartments where space is at a premium. Non-Conductivity - Since optical fibre has no metallic components it can be installed in areas with electromagnetic interference EMI including radio frequency interference RFI. Areas with high EMI include utility lines power-carrying lines and railroad tracks. Other types of cable can fall victim to interference from sources such as radios and lights fibre optic cable has a higher signal-carrying capacity which equals less interference. Should a fibre system be chosen this will give the resident the ability either before first fix or when they take ownership to increase the number of additional TV pointssockets within their dwelling without the need for any additional external wiring. 8
