Planning Your System - The Diagrams

A picture means a thousand words!

Well it does to me, so I took the list, did alot of research and turned it into a diagram.  In 2005 this was a bit of challenge.

HDMI was just coming out and matrix switchers where very expensive.  Also, not everything was HDMI at the time so I had to cater for legacy devices.  This diagram was at the very early stages of my planning and I changed many components before the install and throughout.

I thought it would also be a good idea to show the rack in more detail so i could try and understand what connections had to be made so i could calculate the cable and connectors i needed.  Again, it's changed and filled up alot since I installed it.   The server is now the main controller of all devices.
