Television companies typically have years of experience in using Triax cable systems, according to LEMO in this broadcast whitepaper. When installing this type of cable in their studios they have adequate knowledge to pull in the cables and to terminate them simply and quickly with connectors they have been using for years, and with minimal copper cable tooling.
A soldering iron is probably the most expensive piece of termination tooling they need. Equally, testing the cable assemblies is relatively straightforward, and again uses relatively simple, inexpensive equipment. If a Triax cable becomes defective, or a new one is needed quickly, it is a simple job to do.
Indeed, if a cable is broken along its length a “fast and dirty” repair can be achieved in a very short space of time with simply a means of stripping the broken cable ends and a roll of insulation tape.
