Power For Broadcast

Power is a fundamental part of the broadcast industry, as every item of kit requires some sort of power to function. Places like Central Apparatus Room’s (CAR) use huge amounts of power, most of this doesn’t go on the kit but on the air handling that keeps the kit from overheating. On many occasions the broadcast industry also requires temporary power such as for OB trucks.

This look into power for the broadcast industry will form the basis of my WIKI for 204 broadcast systems.I have chosen to look into power for my wiki because it is something that I find very interesting and it makes my Wiki rather different from the rest of the class.

In the next 3 pages, UPS Room’s, Temporary Power and Cabling Choices, I will explain the basics behind power in the broadcast industry.
