The best alternatives for pulling network cabling (CAT5/6)
For optimal use, more and more devices around your TV must be connected to the Internet or home network. The rise in 3D/HD video signals means the required bandwidth and stability of this connection increases.
Via a CAT5 network
If you have the opportunity to pull CAT5 (network) cables, this is the best solution. But what are the alternatives if you lack the desire or ability to do this?
Wirelessly over Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n)
Internet via Wi-Fi is particularly suitable for mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks, because of its flexibility and mobility. Bandwidth and reliability are very dependent on the distance to overcome and on any obstacles such as walls, ceilings and other wireless networks. Especially with greater distances or with obstacles, Wi-Fi is less suitable for 3D/HD streaming to your TV.
Marmitek has the best alternative solutions for you, specifically designed to transmit HD/3D signals.
Through the existing power network
So-called HomePlug solutions have a bad reputation. To date, the technology (and therefore the quality) often appeared unsuitable for HD streams, and the range was often too limited as well in practice. Marmitek did not find the traditional technologies good enough for introducing HomePlug AV solutions. However, new technological developments have changed this. If you buy a Marmitek solution, you know it is optimised for full HD and 3D video streaming! The names of these HomePlug AV2 solutions start with IPTV PLC.
Through the existing coaxial network
New technology makes it possible to quickly add high-bandwidth Internet to your existing coaxial network. It is suitable for sending and receiving multiple HD streams in parallel. This is made possible using the Marmitek IPTV Coax Pro! This IP over Coax solution is the best alternative for installing a network cable (CAT5/6).
In other words, using the Internet and watching IPTV is all possible simultaneously and without the loss of quality, via coax or the electrical outlet.
