Amplifiers & Distribution
TV amplifiers and distribution systems are used to boost and distribute TV signals to multiple devices or rooms. They are commonly used in large homes or commercial settings where multiple TVs are used, or in areas with weak signal strength.
TV amplifiers work by boosting the signal strength of incoming TV signals, thereby improving picture quality, and reducing signal dropouts. Distribution systems, on the other hand, take the amplified signal and distribute it to multiple TVs or devices using coaxial cables.
There are several types of TV amplifiers and distribution systems, including:
Pre-Amplifiers: These amplifiers are placed close to the TV antenna and amplify the signal before it travels through the coaxial cable.
Distribution Amplifiers: These amplifiers are placed after the pre-amplifier and distribute the amplified signal to multiple TVs or devices.
Masthead Amplifiers: These amplifiers are placed at the base of the antenna mast and amplify the signal before it travels through the coaxial cable.
Splitters: These devices split the signal into multiple outputs to distribute the signal to multiple TVs or devices.
Amplified Splitters: These devices combine the functions of an amplifier and a splitter, amplifying the signal before splitting it.
When selecting a TV amplifier or distribution system, it is important to consider the size of the area to be covered, the number of devices to be connected, and the strength of the incoming TV signal. It is also important to ensure that the amplifier or splitter is compatible with the type of TV signal being used (e.g., digital, analogue, cable, satellite, etc.).
