Description

Audio, Video, and RF Systems

18th October 2022 

For many installers audio and video represent a large percentage of each project. RF systems can be used to deliver a wide range of content into the home including broadcast TV, satellite TV and radio. This course brings together these fascinating topics to deliver the ideal grounding for installers of up-to-date home entertainment.

Audio & Video - Aimed at new AV technicians and experienced installers from other electronic industries, this session contains the vital technical information, basic design principles and the installation practices required. Topics covered include design and installation practices for highest fidelity, the basics of home cinema setup and calibration basics.
RF Systems - RF distribution offers a wide range of signal distribution possibilities covering radio and TV, in both analogue and digital formats. Modern digital TV services mean a single coax cable can offer more than 100 channels of entertainment, including HD broadcasts.
Many homes already have some coax installed and this course explains, in detail, how coax can be used to move signals around the home, how signals from various sources can be combined and distributed around the home, and how installers can ensure robust performance from a coax network.
