Methods of Home Video Distribution

The fact is that our lives are slowly but surely controlled by television, it does not mean that what we do is controlled by television, but it has become a characteristic of modern homes that have televisions in every room.

The TV is controlled via 4 types of content: Sky, Free View, DVD, and Bluray, all located in different places in the house.

Of course, it is desirable to be able to view the entire content of all TVs, depending on the room the viewer is in. There are many methods to do this and this article was written to discuss the pros and cons of each method.

You can hire a commercial audio video installation company for your business.

Wireless Video Transmitter (Non-Hi-Def)

This is always a method that people try first with mixed results. They usually consist of a transmitter and receiver connected via scart to a (single) source and then wirelessly transmitting video and audio to the receiver (which in turn is connected via Scart to the TV remote). There are 2 types of wireless video transmitters that use 2 separate frequency bands, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

The HD video transmitter is relatively new and as it is still quite expensive at the time of writing, we were only able to find 2 models available;

-Marmitek Gigavideo 800

-Open wireless HDMI transmitter

Both models above have connections for multiple input devices (so you can connect Sky HD, Bluray players, etc. at the same time).
