Copper cabling for AV applications

Aug. 31, 2021
Atlona and Panduit delivered information on shielded, unshielded, and more characteristics related to AV system performance.

Frank Straka of Panduit, shown here, teamed up with Roger Takacs of Atlona, a Panduit company, to address copper-cabling options for audio-visual (AV) applications. As can be seen in the slide behind Straka, Power over Ethernet was a point of discussion.

In a description of the session, the presenters stated, “Do you need Cat 5e, 6A, 7A? Do your cables need to be shielded or can they be unshielded? What is the proper wiring structure for AV solutions? There are more types of solutions in the AV world today than five years ago. HDBaseT and AV-over-IP are very similar, but very different. HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C all have special requirements for installation. This presentation provides real examples of when each technology type is best used. It also discusses the different cabling requirements for each technology type, and provides cabling recommendations for them.”
