AV Shop Talk with Nate Schneider & Nevil Bounds
Feltech’s Key Account Director Nevil Bounds joined Nate Schneider of AV Shop Talk to create Episode 24 of the legendary podcast on the impact of broadcast technology on AV.
With the miniaturisation of broadcast technology upon us new possibilities have presented themselves. Two distinct sectors of the AV industry, namely broadcast and corporate, are starting to mesh with one another. Small scale applications for broadcast technology have become affordable in the corporate world. The decision to pull Coax, RGBHV, CATx, or Fibre isn’t exactly a no-brainer. A great deal of thought is required especially for those integrated systems that implement elements of broadcast and elements of consumer AV, meanwhile keeping cost to a minimum while simultaneously attempting to future proof the cable infrastructure. Not to mention the bandwidth challenges that come with HDR and 4K/UHD signal types.
