New InfoComm Special Report
Written for the AV professional, InfoComm Special Reports offer an insider's view of the innovative technologies and companies that make the AV industry dynamic and exciting. These special reports feature an in-depth view of the trends and issues facing the professional AV industry.
Be sure to check out the newly added Fiber-Optics Special Report. Fiber-optic networks are showing up in AV installs at an increasing rate, driven by the need to transport a large amount audio, video, and data over a long distance. Historically, copper-based networks have been able to meet the demand, but advancements in technology and changes in consumption behavior of content such as high-definition video streaming have pushed the capacity of copper cables to their limit. Fiber-optic cables and fiber-optic networks are the obvious remedy to the increasing bandwidth needs of today's users, but the use of fiber optics is still fairly new to the AV industry. Previously, fiber-optic networks were typically deployed in government or military applications for security reasons. Fiber-optic cables and fiber-based network components were so cost-prohibitive that they were rarely seen outside of these venues.
