What is Distributed Video?

If you have heard the term “distributed video” and wondered what exactly that is, you are not alone! While many homeowners can benefit from whole-home distributed video, they are often unaware of it or not really sure what it means. Distributed video, sometimes called whole-house video distribution, is a system that allows you to enjoy video content in any room of your home that you want without the need for audio and video equipment installed in each room. Any room in the home can receive video from any of your entertainment sources and multiple users can watch separate videos with distributed video from one central hub. This reduces the expense of purchasing multiple entertainment sources for each room your home, reduces clutter, and makes it easy to watch what you want when you want.

What exactly can be streamed snd distributed to any room in the home? Just about anything! AppleTV, DVD, DVR, cable box, satellite – they can all be distributed to any room in your home so that you can get rid of the clutter of multiple components in each room. This allows you to enhance the aesthetic of the room and also make your life easier because the controls are the same everywhere and all yo9u need to worry about is picking what you want to watch.

Essentially, all of the televisions and entertainment sources in your home are connected to a video switch that allows you to send whatever you want to watch, wherever you want to watch it. You can start something in one room, pause, and continue watching it in another room. And, depending on your needs and the number of people that live in your home, your home’s distributed video can be installed and programmed to allow for everyone to watch whatever they want, wherever they want, simultaneously.
