What is distributed audio and video?
Answer: simply put, an audio and video distribution system works by connecting all of your audio and video channels into one box, which distributes the media to all set up connected rooms within the home. This set up gives you the option of enjoying your media no matter where you are within your home.
These audio and video distribution systems are complex and designed intricately to perform well in a way that is simple to the user, and can be adapted to suit the individual needs of each user within the home.
Your distributed audio and video system contains many parts, including:
- Distribution box
- Power amplifier
- CAT5 cables
- Control panels
- Remote controls
These pieces all work together to connect all of your home audio and video devices. The multichannel distribution box and power amplifier send audio and video signals to video screens and speakers all throughout the entire home using the high quality CAT5 cables, which are fed through the walls into each connected room. In some homes, wall control panels are also installed to give control within each individual room. A programmable master remote is also set up with the system to allow the user to change settings from room to room.
When setting up an audio and video distribution system within your home, it is also a good idea to have the work done by a licensed professional to ensure the system is working to its full potential, and so that you can have full control of the system’s set up.
