Contemporary Research Display Control

Contemporary Research’s line of control products allow facilities to control up to 4,000 displays over RF coax, eliminating the need for additional cabling. Utilizing our Display Express Web pages give staff the ability to create automated presets, event scheduling and custom Web control panels, using any browser on PCs, tablets and smartphones, requiring no custom programming.

Commands from our Display Express Software or custom control systems are received by our Head End. The Contemporary Research Head End converts the commands into a micro RF control channel. That channel is passed along with all the other channels to each TV. A small Contemporary Research controller at each display receives the channel and controls the TV using IR or RS-232 commands.
