There are many ways to enhance your home’s audio and video system. Any home, of any size, can benefit from a distributed video system. Not only is it a relatively simple professional installation, but it will dramatically enhance your TV viewing experience. If you are unsure what distributed video is, a simple example is your local electronics store. In the store, you have likely seen a wall of televisions all playing the same video at the same time – that is video distribution in action. What you are seeing is not the magical work of some perfectly timed pushing of buttons to make everything seem in sync, one video source is simply being distributed to all of those televisions. But, video distribution is also much more – you can choose to distribute the same video to every television in your home, or, depending on how your system is configured, you could distribute unique audio and video to each individual television as desired.
Residential distributed video is an investment that can make life far easier and actually save you money in the long run. If your home is like most, you probably have more than one television. To play video, a television requires a source which means you need separate sources (such as a cable box or AppleTV) at each television which is not cost-effective and can be unsightly. Because it is unlikely that you will need to watch 5 different things on 5 different televisions at the same time you can save money and only invest in 1, 2, or even 3 video sources and make them distributable to all TVs in the house. All audio and video components can be housed in one discreet location such as an audio/video closet on a rack rather than needing to be installed in each room. Once installed and programmed, residential video distribution enables you to tell each component where that video needs to go and it will play there at the touch of a button.
