Techniques of Home Video Distribution

The fact that our lives are slowly but surely controlled by television, does not mean that what we do is controlled by television, but has become a feature of modern homes where television is in every room.

The TV is driven by 4 types of content: Sky, Free View, DVD, and Bluray, all located in different locations around the house.

If you want to get more information about distributed video networks, then you can check out the sources.

Of course, it is desirable to be able to view the full content of all TVs, depending on the room in which the viewer is located. There are many methods to do this and this article was written to discuss the pros and cons of each method.

Wireless video transmitter (non-Hi-Def)

This is always a method that people try first with mixed results. They usually consist of a transmitter and receiver connected to a (single) source and then wirelessly transmitting video and audio to a receiver (which in turn is connected to the TV remote control). There are 2 types of wireless video transmitters that use 2 separate bands, 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

The HD video transmitter is relatively new and as it is still quite expensive at the time of writing, we were only able to find 2 models available;

-Marmitek Gigavideo 800

-Open wireless HDMI transmitter

Both models above have connections for multiple input devices (so you can connect Sky HD, Bluray players, etc. at the same time).
