TE Connectivity unveils new video distribution system

By Telecom
Lead Team:
TE Connectivity has introduced a new video distribution system (VDS)
that enables network managers to deliver HD RF and IP video over an existing
data cabling infrastructure without the need for coaxial cabling or any RF

VDS enables
the delivery of video signals such as cable television, satellite, in-house
video, digital signage, electronic bulletin boards or any other service
normally delivered over coaxial systems over a Category 6 or higher
twisted-pair infrastructure. The VDS eliminates the need for a separate coaxial
infrastructure or the need for an RF technician to install it.

finding that simultaneous access to data, video and other high-bandwidth
services is becoming a necessity for many of our customers – especially in the
financial services, healthcare, and education industries,” said Kam Patel,
product management director for emerging technologies at TE Enterprise Networks.

rich content in the form of HD video has often been a challenge for network
managers as it typically means overlaying their twisted-pair infrastructure
with an additional, coaxial infrastructure.

TE’s new
video distribution system eliminates the time and expense associated with this
additional layer of infrastructure. VDS allows anyone to access these services,
including high-definition or IP video, wherever they have a network outlet.

The TE
Connectivity VDS solution is TIA-568/ISO 11801 compliant and delivers broadband
RF signals over an existing structured cabling infrastructure. It supports
full-spectrum video (862 MHz) for up to 295 feet or 550 MHz for up to 328 feet.
VDS is a true plug and play” system for greater ease of installation and
maintenance and features automatic gain control.

self-adjusting baluns to provide amplification and equalization, output and
input levels are adjusted to provide perfect HD video at the TV set. The system
automatically adjusts the head-end signal for proper system operation and
thereby eliminates the need for manual tuning by solving equalization and
balancing issues traditionally associated with coaxial systems.

It solves
one of the biggest headaches for network managers who are trying to integrate
video distribution across an existing twisted pair infrastructure and it
provides a future-proofed solution for the longer-term migration to IPTV.
