Cabling for Video in the pages of CI&M

February 13, 2007 -- Several articles from Cabling Installation & Maintenance's archives have focused on infrastructure systems for video transmission.

Over the past six months, Cabling Installation & Maintenance magazine has published several articles related to cabling infrastructure specifically intended for video applications. Here's a brief look at some of what we have published in that time, with links to the full text of each article. Click on the author's name for a link to the article.

In October, Tricia Gagne of ETL-Semko told the story of the infrastructure project at Idlewild Baptist Church in Tampa, FL. The church's audio and video systems are state-of-the-art, and Gagne explains the institution's need for such a robust infrastructure and for the independent verification of that infrastructure.

Also that month, Axis Communication's general manager Fredrik Nilsson "turned the lens" on network-video technology, as the title of his article states. In addition to discussing the latest innovations in IP-based video, Nilsson also blew away the 10 biggest myths about the technology.

In September 2006, Corning Cable Systems' Doug Coleman discussed the use of fiber-optic cabling systems in video and surveillance applications. He emphasized the use and advantages of tight-buffered cable in outdoor video/surveillance environments.

And in August, Muxlab's Jeffrey Herman delved into the use of A/V baluns in twisted-pair copper systems to expand their applications beyond voice and data. In particular, he discussed how and why the balun can help twisted-pair systems deliver classroom training, digital signage, custom A/V installation, security video, and CATV services.
