Diagnosing Cable System Faults (1978)

By Kenneth L. Foster, NYS Commission On Cable Television

There is a lack of technical information within the industry. This is particularly true of material for technician training. The most effective tool with which to ensure the delivery of the highest quality pictures is a well trained technician.

The New York Commission on Cable TV has produced a video tape which simulates system technical problems. The tape does not establish optimum ratios of noise or distortion. It displays distortions at levels that allow easy recognition of specific problems and shows distortion levels at FCC and CRTC standards.

The paper will discuss the tape, its uses in training, and the techniques used in its production.
