Whole House Video Distribution

Your video source could be a HDTV signal from an Antenna, a Satellite service, Cable TV service or video feed from security cameras. The Cable used for residential video application is RG6 Coaxial Cable Coaxial cable is called "coaxial" because it includes one physical channel that carries the signal surrounded by another concentric physical channel, both running along the same axis. The two channels are seperated by a layer of insulation and there is additional insulation around the outer concentric physical layer.

To allow for viewing of any video source in any room, the recommendation for new home video wiring are:
  • Run RG6 coax cable from all video sources to the central located structured wiring panel.
  • Run two RG6 cables to each TV location.
  • Ensure availability of Telephone and Internet at the Video locations for pay-per-view or other future services.
  • If you are planning to install a flat panel TV on wall, install wallplates at appropriate height from the floor.
