It is best to find an electrician who is a member of the NICEIC. They may provide full electrical certification of connections made for the fibre optic system. All of their own installation engineers are fully certified contractors to the highest Health & Safety standards, and BS7671. See how to install fibre optics.

Video and Audio
As well as distributing video there are many applications where it is also necessary to distribute audio, data and even reverse infra red for controlling the source equipment from the remote location.
If we add audio to the video (still on only one cable) this opens up a whole new area of application from in-store advertising (a new and very fast growing trend), conference centres, lecture halls / classrooms, evidence displays in courtrooms and even distributed AV in aircraft and ships. Television retail stores are using this technology to send video and audio to their display areas, knowing the customer will see the best performance from the TV and are more likely to buy.
So now let’s add some data to the video and audio. If we add a reverse infra red path then we can watch, listen and control, lets say a DVD player or a satellite decoder, from a different location using only one CAT5* cable. Now you can finish watching that movie from the comfort of your bedroom without needing to do anymore than switch your television on and select an AV channel.
SSE also has the ability to extend PS/2, serial RS232 and RS485 data. For example, serial RS232 can be used to extend touchscreens but can also be used for controlling the switching on or off of plasma screens and projectors to prolong their life.
