Perfect for amplification and distribution of Digital Television signals to overcome multi-outlet antenna system losses. (Amplification should only be used where required. Over driven signal may result in customer equipment failures and induce unwanted noise into antenna system).
Most commonly used for residential applications these amplifiers will be found mounted just below the antenna. They are normally remotely powered by a power injector located internally conected directly into a outlet plate by "T" shaped injector.
Whilst very popular with some installers, we only recommend masthead amplifiers in situations where the signal levels are very weak but in good condition thus overcoming multi-outlet losses.
Overpowering an Amplifier will add unwanted noise to your system and will certainly reduce the quality of your signal (MER), which increases the risk of pixelation.
Any cable losses between the antenna and the masthead amplifier will add noise to your system, cabling should be as short as possible, with the amplifier installed as close as possible to the antenna, without it being so close that it affects the antenna performance. This is usually within 300 – 500mm of the antenna.
Commercial amplifiers for bigger more robust systems with multiple outlets. Recommend for use in those situations where the receive signal levels require boosting. Once again overloading an amplifier will certainly reduce the quality of your signal (MER), which increases the risk of pixelation. Any cable losses between the antenna and the amplifier will add noise to your receiving system. Found internally in ceilings or communication cabinets. These amplifiers should only be installed by a qualified installer
Internal Retail Splitter amplifiers:
Produced by most manufactures internal amplifiers are normally found located behind tv sets. These very basic amplifiers should only be used where signal levels at the outlet plate have good MER readings but low signal strength. Once again if the amplifier is overloaded, it will certainly reduce the quality of your signal (MER), which increases the risk of pixelation.
