Toner Cable Equipment Inc is one of those rare companies that not only stocks equipment needed for TV systems but also possesses a highly knowledgeable staff to advise its customers.
Toner has provided cable system equipment since 1971, operating from their Horsham, Pennsylvania facility and expanding the range of equipment in stock since day one. The sales staff at Toner will always recommend a lower cost solution if it will do the job better, which is practically unheard of today.
In 1996, Toner expanded into the European market when they opened their warehouse and office in England.
Toner’s knowledgeable staff always stays on top of the latest technology to bring you the best and most cutting edge cable systems solutions. The Toner staff also has the skills needed to construct fiber systems and can help you with choosing equipment, providing support or even commissioning the install. Toner offers a wide range of fiber accessories, from attenuators and cleaning supplies to optical measurement and fusion splicers.
As you already know, we are in the middle of the digital revolution. The switch to digital has caused considerable difficulty and confusion for many cable operators. Fortunately, Toner’s experts are on top of it. They are ready and willing to advise you on all the new acronym’s (MPEG, DHCP, ASI) and can guide you to get your system up and running with minimum hassle. Remember when a TV channel was just that, a channel, such as CH 6 or Ch 31? Well, thanks to digital, that same channel can carry up to 15 programs. This is all a result of compression and QAM. The folks at Toner are experts in many facets of the digital transition and can assist you in your set up and execution.
Analog was easy–you put a channel on the system and every TV could receive it. But that’s unfortunately not the case with digital. Some televisions just can’t recognize the table. Are they TVCT tables or VCVT? Is it DVB standard or ATSC standard? 8VSB or QAM–not all TV’s can tune both. This is where the experts at Toner come in. They have the experience and knowledge to successfully launch your digital setup.
Need a headend or need to add to one? Call Toner. They custom-build hundreds of headends each year. Toner can also install and set up EAS or conditional access and even troubleshoot any reception problems you may have. Digital is not only harder than analog; it’s also more expensive. You may have previously used a 3.8-meter satellite dish, and now you need a new 5-meter dish just to get the same programming.
The bottom line? It all comes down to experience and knowledge–and Toner Cable has it. With more than 43 years of experience, Toner’s staff can handle even the most complicated of projects, and they always offer the most competitive prices in the industry.
