NOVEMBER 4, 2010 -- Prysmian Cables & Systems says it will launch its new VerTV system for satellite TV via fiber at "Impronta Digitale - National Edition," an event organized by Sky Italia November 4-5.

Satellite TV, which has traditionally used coaxial/copper cable for the final customer connection, is gradually migrating towards the use of fiber-optic technology, driven by the ever growing demand for new high bandwidth services. Sky has recognized the advantages of optical technology, says Prysmian, and is one of the early adopters of the technology within the satellite TV world.

In response, Prysmian says has developed a product aimed at producing an optimized system for fiber TV cabling and has become one of Sky's official technological partners in its migration towards fiber.

The VerTV system is the result. Designed to be compatible with every multi-dwelling unit TV cabling requirement, it consists of pre-connectorized patchcords, floor boxes, and a dedicated mini-connector which, thanks to its reduced dimensions, allows easy installation within existing ducts. All parts of the system have been designed in line with the strictest environmental requirements including full compliance with all safety and fire regulations for indoor cabling, Prysmian asserts.

The system also has been designed with ease and efficiency of installation as key criteria. No splices -- fusion nor mechanical -- are required in the field due to the pre-connectorized approach.
