Large scale HD and UHD displays with crisp, clear sound quality have become popular in classrooms, hospitals, auditoriums, airports, atriums and more. Screens are used for entertainment, information and waypointing in ever more dynamic and bandwidth-demanding ways. Traditionally AV signals have required single-purpose heavy-gauge cabling. Moving to an Ethernet-based infrastructure such as SDVoE or HDBase-T opens up the possibility of integrating AV systems into wider building data networks, while enabling you to take advantage of the flexibility and ease of use of Category cabling.
Large-scale, high resolution visual displays with superior quality audio are proving invaluable to many types of businesses, and venues. Education facilities both lower and higher education represent one of the largest and traditional markets for AV deployment. Healthcare facilities and hospitals (particularly operating theaters, where specialized monitoring and video over IP are transmitted for training and collaborative purposes) is also a growing market. As technology continues to improve, businesses, education and healthcare IT infrastructure planners need to make sure their solution is flexible, upgradable, and easily manageable.
Category cabling is more cost effective over longer distances than heavy-gauge, dedicated AV cables.
Category cabling is lighter in weight, easier to pull through conduits and supports 4K UHD over much longer distances than HDMI or DisplayPort cables. It’s an easy-to-use technology familiar to most facilities and IT personnel.
Connecting your AV infrastructure via Ethernet makes it easy to converge with other IP-based systems, such as smart building solutions, for centralized control and energy management.
A well-planned structured cabling system will easily accommodate new hardware. The backward compatibility of Category cabling means a Cat6A cable originally installed to support a gigabit network will also support 10Gbt/s systems without any need to re-cable.
Molex Connected Enterprise Solutions structured cabling solutions have gained a reputation for high performance, durability and innovation. Our PowerCat copper solutions are designed to support 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GBase-T) and are fully ready for the next generation of high-power PoE.
The simple and flexible approach of zone cabling provides many benefits. These robust, versatile zone enclosures are designed to house passive and/or active equipment. In-ceiling and under-floor versions are available.
A robust and flexible product, the unloaded DataGate patch panel can be configured to provide the exact number of modular ports required.
Designed to support 10Gb networks and ideal for high-bandwidth applications. This field modular plug is simple to terminate and is available in straight or right angled configurations.
