What are outages and blackouts?
Storms and accidents are frequent causes of power loss. Faults in transmission infrastructure can also sometimes occur.
Equipment such as media servers, control / automation systems, computers, DVRs and gaming consoles containing hard disk drives are becoming core parts of our systems. They can all suffer information loss and even disk failure as a result of power outages.
Expensive projectors are particularly susceptible to damage from outages as the proper cool-down processes cannot occur resulting in the hot lamp overheating itself and surrounding circuitry.
