The power of Fibre

High quality Audio Video content is becoming readily available online. This is great for our entertainment, but how does our internet bandwidth restrict us from viewing this content?

I have recently posted about the 5 Benefits of Fibre Broadband in Clifton. We are currently able to offer high speed broadband internet as well as DSTV over IP. This means that residents of Clifton are finally able to access High Definition DSTV. Something previously unavailable.

High Definition Cabling Installation

We have recently completed our first full house High Definition Cabling Installation for a video distribution system. This type of system requires the correct infrastructure in the form of Cat6 and High Definition cabling installation

In this post we will show you what existing cabling we had to deal with and what the process of installing all the new cabling was.

Finished installation. All Cables patched in!

Our First AV Rack Build

We have recently completed our first full house High Definition video distribution system installation. This was our first opportunity to implement a High Definition Video Distribution system, which is all controlled via Crestron.

Due to the complexity of this type of installation, we installed all the required equipment into a Systems Rack.

5 Benefits of Fibre Broadband in Clifton

It is great to know that Fibre broadband in Clifton is available! I would like to highlight some of the benefits of moving over to this new type of internet solution.

  • High speed internet. Speeds of up to 10 Megabits per second are readily available.
  • Reliable internet connections. As the fibre is well insulated and not copper or any other type of metal, there is no interference. Creating reliable connections to the internet.
  • The ability to access security systems from other locations. Remote camera monitoring is possible as there is more data available for good quality picture from CCTV cameras.
  • Streaming of televisions series and movies is possible. It is now possible to start buying shows on devices like Apple TV.
  • It is possible to have DSTV delivered over fibre. This does away with the previously required satellite dish on the roof. With this in mind, High Definition DSTV is finally available in Clifton.

If you would like more information about these systems, or would like to move over to this type of system, please contact us and we will be happy to meet with you to discuss your requirements.
