The business of transmitting composite video signals along cables is a highly technical subject. It requires a knowledge of characteristic impedance, bandwidth, frequency rolloff, etc. But whilst these matters may be complex they are really only of interest and importance to the designer and manufacturer of the transmission equipment. Users do not need to bother with any of it. They only need to know that the equipment works and that a particular piece of kit or configuration will operate over the distance and in the environment in which it is being installed.
That’s where we at VIOTRAN come in. We know the characteristics of the products we supply and how they work. All you have to tell us is over what distance the video has to be transmitted and in what kind of environment. Is the signal being sent across two sites? Is the cable being laid near telephone lines, fluorescent lighting or heavy electrical machinery? Will there be multiple cameras, a gatehouse, a separate control room? We will be very pleased to advise you.
