The Inside Scoop on Your Entertainment System

Television in living room

Ever since the technological boom, the entertainment industry has flourished with differentiating appliances, video consoles, and systems. These devices are regularly updated as well, which at times requires us to enter into the mess that is the bundle of cables behind the entertainment systems to swap out devices. As most of us know, this influx of cables can be hard to organize and manage. If not properly maintained, these bundles of cables can also potentially become hazardous. Our electricians are trained to oversee the wiring in your systems and spot areas where cable management could use some work. So what exactly are all the cables involved in the mess? Here are some cables you may commonly find, below:

  • High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) Cable: transmits video resolutions of up to 8K and up to eight channels of 60HZ audio.
  • Coaxial Cable: conveys data, video, and voice communications
  • Component Video Cables: separately carry luminance, synch, and color information
  • Display Port/DVI Video Cables: connector that has the ability to exceed the bandwidth required for 720p and 1080i video signals

VGA/SVGA Cables: connector that separates the three primary video colors (red, green, and blue) from a PC to a TV

Professional Installations

For those that want a seamless entertainment system with no evidence of wires, our electricians can design an in-wall system concept that will hide anything unsightly. These entertainment setups are also great to keep cables away from kids and pets who may potentially find their way to them. This keeps cables maintained and increases the life of your appliances.
