MATV (Master Antenna Television), SMATV (Satellite Master Antenna Television) and Commercial
Large commercial buildings (multi-dwelling units) often have a TV antenna system that utilise a single antenna to distribute signal to all outlets within the tenancies. These are called MATV (Master Antenna Television) systems. If they are also combined with a satellite dish for PayTV services, like Foxtel, they are called SMATV (Satellite Master Antenna Television) systems.
The team at Install My Antenna are experts in MATV and SMATV installations. We have worked on the largest of installations (running thousands of outlets off the one antenna), and are fully trained and certified to conduct integrated PayTV and Foxtel installations and Scope Of Work submissions, to ensure everything is Foxtel compliant.
Our highly skilled and experienced technicians are available to help you with any of the following situations:
• New construction sites (requiring a MATV or SMATV system)
• Maintenance work on existing MATV or SMATV systems
• Re-cabling of large commercial buildings (to replace old cable)
New Construction Sites
We have many technicians trained to install any type of option for a Free To Air only, or a combined Foxtel installation for new buildings. Foxtel’s technology changes have resulted in a number of options available for SMATV systems, including:
• TDT (Transparent Digital Transmodulator)
• Single Multistacker
Given the options available, for new construction builds, it is important that you discuss with us the different options available at the start of your project. If you contact us before the construction work starts, you can save running unnecessary cables, resulting in potentially thousands of dollars in savings.
Maintenance Work on Existing MATV or SMATV Systems
We get calls every day for faults in large commercial buildings, requiring urgent attention. Our experienced technicians are the very best in Australia and can normally provide repairs on the first visit, with most parts stocked in their vehicles. Whether it is just a faulty wall plate, or a whole new single channel headend, we will ensure we provide you with the most cost-effective solution that will give all tenants perfect digital TV reception.
Re-cabling of Large Commercial Buildings
Many old apartment buildings had their MATV systems installed many decades ago, before the switchover to Digital TV. There are also many buildings where the cabling has disintegrated, corroded or been chewed by vermin, resulting in sub-par performance of their MATV system.
If this is the case, you may require a full re-cabling of all outlets. This is a major work and can require co-ordination of tenants over the course of many days or weeks, to ensure access is available at the right time of the job.
Thankfully, Install My Antenna has performed hundreds of ‘upgrades’ involved re-cabling of all outlets. You will be in safe hands with our fully trained & experienced technicians, as well as our technical and administrative office staff able to assist with scheduling of access, detailed reports and even attendance at strata or building committee meetings (if required).
