Cable Communications Technology by Eugene Bartlett

By Eugene Bartlett

Cable is now as a lot within the broadband company because it is tv. This booklet explains the basics of coaxial cable know-how and the DSP that controls it, in addition to the cable modem and voice over IP know-how now significantly altering the cable operators’ company. aimed toward operating engineers and technicians, it may possibly even be used a textbook for the a easy cable communications direction in a 2 yr tech software.

112 Identifying the service area of a cable television system is a difficult problem. First and foremost is the fact that the areas of residential population are the criteria for successful subscriber penetration. Unfortunately, municipal authorities may impose requirements as part of licensing or franchising agreements that nonproductive areas be served. Also, future areas of residential expansion may not be readily identified, thus necessitating future plant expansions. Most cable system operators avoided building cable plants in industrial and commercial areas.

The digital numbers forming the bit-stream activate pixels of the proper color on the display screen. In compressed form, only the changes in picture content are transmitted, resulting in a decrease in the overall bit rate required to provide a picture frame. Using digital technology, the encryption or encoding needed for premium programming can be built into the digital information stream. For an aspect ratio of 4 :3 (NTSC format) and with present video picture quality, the video signal in compressed format requires less channel bandwidth than the present 6-MHz television band.
