What is SMATV?
SMATV stands for Satellite Master Antenna Television, and refers to a system that
uses multiple satellite and broadcast signals to create a single integrated cable
signal for distribution to a cabling network. In other words, with a SMATV system
you can become your own in-house cable company.
How does it Work?
We install a satellite dish and TV antennae to receive programming from satellite
providers and local broadcast networks. These antennae feed into several racks of
electronic equipment which tunes in the channels you choose for your cable lineup,
and combines them into a single cable signal. This feed can also include local sources
such as in-house channels such as a campus TV station, information and billboard
If you have existing cable service, the changeover is often as simple as disconnecting
the cable company feed and plugging in the new system. If there is not a cable plant
in place, we can plan and install a cable network for you.
One Vision can offer a full, design, installation and maintenance service for SMATV
systems. From 5 channels to 30 channels, Free to Air or subscription channels, all
equipment is of a professional standard. An off-site remote access can be offered
to monitor the system and make channel changes. Whether this is a new installation
or an upgrade of an existing system, it is carried with the least amount of disruption.
