Communal TV Systems Cardiff
Are you looking for a Communal TV System for your block of flats or apartments? Maybe you have a faulty system and require an engineer?
With over 25 years of experience and fully insured, Elite AV Services can advise, quote, install and repair any type of Communal TV System in Cardiff and the surrounding areas.
A communal TV system is a system that integrates terrestrial TV, satellite TV, Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) and FM radio, all at 1 location, then distributes to the end-user. This type of system is referred to as an Integrated Reception System (IRS). An IRS system is commonly installed in buildings such as apartment blocks, schools, hospitals, residential homes and many more. With technology constantly changing, new IRS systems are being installed using fibre optic technology, meaning just a single aerial and dish feeding multiple points and allowing a more robust signal to guarantee consistency throughout.
The advantage of an integrated reception system is that it allows the user(s) to choose which type of TV service they would like, whether it’s a paid subscription service or non-subscription service and have the choice of either digital Freeview TV, Sky & Sky Q, Freesat TV, Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) and FM Radio.
Communal systems function in many different ways and can be very versatile! A typical communal system would consist of a digital approved Freeview compatible aerial, Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) and FM radio aerial, alongside a fixed satellite dish receiving a signal for Sky TV and Freesat services which then a multi-core cable would be installed from the main headend system to a communal riser cupboard, then into a multi-switch unit that combines the input signals and then distributes to each individual apartment or room(s).
Depending on the requirements of the client and type of property at which the installation is being carried out at, multiple satellite dishes can be incorporated within the communal system to receive both European and international programmes, allowing the user(s) a choice of both English and international channels along with the option to have a non-subscription and paid subscription service.
All communal TV systems differ depending on the elements required, such as how many tv locations are going to be catered for and distributed within the communal system, the routing of cables and where multi-switches and amplifiers will be located. Our first port of call would be to attend the property as part of a site survey to assess exactly what the requirements are and the type of communal system required, such as a simple upgrade to an existing system in a small block of apartments, up to a fully-fledged fibre optic TV system for a housing estate? Once these steps have been taken into consideration, then we can design and plan a system to give the end-user perfect reception of their digital Freeview and Sky TV satellite services.
Once we have finished installing or repairing a communal TV system, we make sure all signals are fully tested using a specialist analyser to meet digital requirement approvals and all signals are recorded electronically and provided along with the sign-off.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“Anthony is really knowledgable and professional and I knew from my initial conversations that I’d found the right guy for the job. Anthony wall-mounted my 65″ Sky Glass TV, which is notoriously hard to mount due to it’s size, weight and the fact that the mount it comes with isn’t really fit for purpose. Knowing that Anthony had mounted these TVs before gave me the confidence to use Elite AV Service and I also took their advice to buy a different mount to ensure the job could be completed on the day.”
James PassmoreTV Wall Mounting
“Anthony was brilliant. Nice guy and very helpful generally.”
Henry EllisTV Wall Mounting
“Chris did a fantastic job mounting our new TV, including concealing all the wires. He also moved the plug socket down so that it was positioned fully behind our TV unit. Highly recommended!”
Jamie KinnearTV Wall Mounting

Kerrie GreenTV Wall Mounting
“Helped me setup my CCTV when i was having issues with the IP cameras on a new DVR. All is working now and will for sure be in contact again with him for maintenance”
Mark CoatesCCTV Service
“From our first meeting Chris was professional and friendly. He explained how he would tackle putting three TVs on the wall so we were confident with the plan. Chris turned up on time and worked in a clean and tidy manner. He has a great attention to detail and doesn’t cut corners. We have dry lined walls so hanging a picture is a pain.
Would I recommend him – 100%
Thanks Chris for a cracking job.”
Jan FrostTV Wall Mounting
“Chris responded immediately to my initial enquiry on installing a TV bracket and offered an appointment a few days later. Discussed what I needed in detail in order to inform quote and gave me options. Turned up on time, very helpful and friendly, got the job done quickly and looks great. Def recommend”
Mrs SchofieldTV Wall Mounting
“Great communication from the start with full transparency re costs.
TV hung perfectly. I initially wanted it at a certain height but was advised maybe a tad lower would be better. Great decision to go with their recommendation.
Ariel had to be rerouted / extended with all cables well hidden in white strips.
Full demonstration given on completion from a thoroughly professional & friendly tv operative.
Martin TaylorTV Wall Mounting
“Chris was extremely helpful and explained all the available options. He did not pressure you into a certain one but provided his professional advice. The work was undertaken on the day he said it would and cleaned up after himself. Would definitely use him again.”
