We use professional signal distribution programs to accurately calculate the loss at every TV point no matter if you need a simple analogue TV point to an optical fiber connection or any combinations of all the types.
To connect a Terrestrial- or Satellite signal to your TV can be done by most installers and don’t need very expensive equipment to do it. Some home owners prefer to do it themselves, but you have to have the technical knowledge to get the best signal level and lowest noise levels. Extra points can sometimes be more difficult and sometimes need extra specialized equipment. Connections to the extra TV’s needs to be carefully planned as you may lose your signal and functionality.
Guest House and Lodges
I travel a lot and staying over in guest houses and lodges and can’t understand why the guest house and lodge owners spend a lot of money on the interior and exterior of the building, but the TV’s in the rooms have poor quality pictures. Questioning the owners they reply that they do it themselves or they use the local cheapest installer.
The equipment we use in these complexes is NOT the same as you will use in your house. If your decoder fails in your house, there is only one or two TV’s without a signal and only your children complaining in your necks, but if one component fails in a complex, all the TV’s lose their signal and you are sitting with a lot more unhappy clients. This equipment is more expensive than the normal house equipment and need more expensive installation equipment to setup and testing the system. This is the reason why a quote for a quest house or lodge is considerable higher than a normal house installation.
Not all the home TV installers have the know-how to do a proper signal installation. If you are a guest house or lodge owner and need to improve your TV quality, ask the installer the following questions:
- What type of installation he recommends?
- What equipment does he use?
- Insist on a signal distribution plan with a signal level printout at every TV point. If they can’t provide it, ask them to call SATCOM to help them or call us for assistance.
- What are the guarantees?
- What is the installation period?
- How many similar installations have the installer done?
