The Definitive "Multimedia Age" Guide to A/V Wiring and Cabling! Here's the only guide you'll ever need to the increasingly complex topic of interconnecting A/V systems. Current, comprehensive, and undoubtedly practical, it provides a ready reference that is sure to be of continuing use. Unlike other books which treat the topic more theoretically, this guide clearly explains exactly what to do. It includes extensive and invaluable data charts on currently available wire, cable, and fiber, and covers all major A/V interconnection solutions. The design, installation, and maintenance of audio/video systems have always been dependent upon proper wiring and cabling. However, the current--and anticipated--use of digital video and audio requires large amounts of bandwidth, significantly complicating the technical considerations. This book provides the much-needed nuts-and-bolts information that will allow engineers and technicians to make more intelligent decisions with regard to capacity, speed, and cost parameters as they wire, design, and install modern media systems.
