Media - Cabling & infrastructure..
Media cabling and infrastructure are now part of the standard specification of modern properties whether Commercial or Domestic. Installed data cables to connect computers, internet TVs and related peripherals are becoming a standard as well as a selling point to prospective property buyers.
The way we consume media has changed and will continue to do so. On-demand TV coupled with ever-increasing broadband speeds mean that the Internet will deliver the media content we both need and desire. Yet wireless technology can only be relied on to a limited degree, making network cables (Cat5 /6 /7) the only way to ensure un-interrupted, trouble free access to music, movies and the outside world.
New build houses, businesses and any subsequent re-wires should have, as part of their installation, a network and media infrastructure to cope with the modern media demands of not just now but the future. Installation costs can be integrated into the electrical installation, bringing the overall cost down considerably, especially when compared to subsequent renovation costs involved with a poorly designed or absent infrastructure.
The correct wiring layout/topology will also need to be adopted. Simply having a cable going from the living room to the bedroom is no longer sufficient. A 'star' system should always be deployed where a central room/cupboard has all the incoming and outgoing connections for all services; Telephone, Broadband, Sky & TV Feeds, Speaker Cables, Alarms, Security etc. This makes it easy to 're-route' any connections without the need to lay new cables, rip up carpets, dig into walls and re-decorate.
