The Main Communal TV Systems We Provide

IRS – Integrated Reception System

Do you have a large building with multiple televisions? Perhaps you own or manage a hotel, an apartment block or an office building, or you may run or look after a student accommodation block? Do you run a holiday park with many caravans or chalets requiring or running off one aerial system?

An Integrated Reception System is ideal for all these locations. It will distribute services such as Sky Digital, Freeview or digital radio to a range of viewing locations simultaneously via a single drop cable.

We will conduct a survey of your premises to make sure you get the right system. We will plan carefully to make sure that signal levels are maintained throughout your building, and we will use the latest testing equipment and guidelines when we design and commission a communal TV system for you.

SMATV – Satellite Master Antenna Television Systems

If you are looking to distribute up to 30 channels from either Sky Digital or Freeview to multiple televisions, a SMATV system may be right for you. It’s the perfect system for a hotel, care home, hospital, prison or school.

The system uses a Multibox to convert six digital channels to high quality television signals. These signals can then be fed to the SMATV distribution system, and if you need more channels, we can just add additional boxes to your system.

MATV – Master Antenna Television Systems

A MATV system lets you provide terrestrial digital TV and radio to multiple occupied dwellings.  While this system cannot distribute satellite channels, it is a cost-effective way of supplying your residents with independent digital channels, such as the Freeview channels.
