2. TV DISH
A satellite dish is just a special kind of antenna designed to focus on a specific broadcast source. The standard dish consists of a parabolic (bowl-shaped) surface and a central feed horn. To transmit a signal, a controller sends it through the horn, and the dish focuses the signal into a relatively narrow beam.
Does your installation require a satellite switch? Also known as multiswitches, they are used to connect satellite TV cables to your TV set. These satellite switches also prevent interference between cable and antenna signals.
A multi switch device is the rational way of providing satellite signals to multiple (usually more than four or eight) satellite receivers from a single dish and LNB. Its task is to be ‘invisible’ to the satellite STB as it mimics all the functions of standard Universal LNB units and optionally DiSEqC switches.
Multiswitches are commonly installed on or in blocks of flats to allow all the residents to receive satellite TV without having to have a separate dish for every resident.
Some multiswitches only have two inputs (for one dual LNB), in this case, depending on the voltage supplied by the receiver; either horizontal or vertical polarisation is selected.
3 input multiswitches are available, which combine a dual LNB with an input from a terrestrial antenna.
5 input multiswitches are also available, which combine the 4 input "standard" multiswitch with an input from a terrestrial antenna.
5x8 (5 by 8) Multiswitches, which have 4 satellite input, 1 terrestrial antenna input and 8 outputs
17x8 (17 by 8) Multiswitches, which have 16 satellite input, 1 terrestrial antenna input and 8 outputs within builtin amplifier for compensating cable losses
4. HDMI EXTENDER
An hdmi extender can give people the assurance that they will not miss any detail in their high definition picture. The extenders are usually connected at the ends ofHDMI cable. This can also be used to connect two HDMI cables and create a longerHDMI extension.
Information about HDMI extender and its uses :
TV and DVD players are connected through cables for carrying audio and video signals. People might have used S video cables, composite audio and video cables or component cables for HDTV. All these cables carry audio and video signals in the format of analog. HDMI carries the signals in digital format so that there is no need of converting into analog signal at the ends. There are two types of HDMI cables and they are high speed and standard cables. An HDMI extender can give people the assurance that they will not miss any detail in their high definition picture. The extenders are usually connected at the ends of HDMI cable. This can also be used to connect two HDMI cables and create a longer HDMI extension. These extenders function by regenerating the digital audio and high definition video it obtains from the device source.
Benefits of using HDMI extenders :
Here are some major benefits of using HDMI extenders.
The major benefit is that it lets people to extend distance between devices. When a person wished to view a film using a BlueRay DVD player on the television in another room where he was not able to do it. They can use HDMI extenders with flexible and cheap cables for making this connection possible.
You can buy a splitter extender and use it for viewing the HDMI source on several televisions. There is no need of using swapping devices. You can connect devices over a long distance between devices with an HDMI extender.
