Contemporary Research ICC2-ATSC 4 HDTV Tuner/Controller

The ICC2-ATSC4 HDTV Tuner is an integrated HDTV tuner/controller that networks HD display monitors and projectors in a Display Express TV control system. As a universal TV tuner, the ICC2-ATSC4 can receive ATSC, NTSC, and clear QAM cable channels from an MATV antenna or CATV cable RF system. The new unit shares features with the 232-ATSC4 tuner, with the ability to tune MPEG2 and MPEG4 programs, and can output 1080p video.

The tuner displays broadcasts through simultaneous HDMI, RGB/Component, and NTSC composite video or connections. Full-time audio is available from digital 5.1/PCM HDMI, optical, and coax ports, as well as variable-level analog stereo audio outputs.

Contemporary Research ICC1-232 RS-232 TV Controller

The ICC1-232 RS-232 TV Controller delivers versatile 1-way control for power, volume, channels, and available control lockout commands, receiving iC-Net network commands over the same broadband coax that carries the CATV channels. Compact in size and price, the ICC1-232 features discrete power control, channel tuning, volume control, and local control lockout. Tuning options include analog and HDTV format channels, as well as AV inputs.

High-speed 1-way control is possible through the same RF cable that carries the TV channels, creating networked operation of distributed media systems without adding control wiring. Compatible with the Contemporary Research Display Express software, the ICC1-232 can be networked with up to 4000 display controllers. For custom systems applications, the ICC1-232 and other CR display controllers can be accessed from a single RS-232 or Telnet port on an ICE-HE Ethernet Head.

Contemporary Research ICE-HE Ethernet Head End

Contemporary Research introduces a new solution for display system control and distributed media management, the ICE-HE Ethernet Head-End. Through a single Ethernet port, the ICE-HE can network thousands of iC-Net TV controllers, communicating over the same CATV cable that carries the media channels.

The industry-standard iC-Net protocol operates seamlessly over Ethernet networks, RS-232 control ports, RF coax, Cat5 wiring, and fiber optic cables. Custom control systems, and ICE ToolKit and iCE Director software can easily integrate all TVs, video projectors, and plasma displays across a facility or campus.

The ICE-HE can distribute 2-way iCC-Net data over existing CATV RF cable. Employing clear-channel RF frequencies to transmit and receive data, the iCC-Net network is compatible with most CATV systems without conflicting with existing TV channels. The bi-directional network operates over a standard low-split cable system, simplifying installation and support.

Control data can also be transmitted over Category 5 and Category 3 wiring, using the ICE-HE iCW-Net ports. Three iCW-Net ports are included, each capable of connecting thousands of ICW-Net format controllers over wiring runs of up to 3,300 feet (1 Km). In addition, iCW-Net data can be sent to remote locations over fiber and videoconferencing codecs.

Applications include educational television systems, presentation rooms, auditoriums, pay-per-view, theme parks, museums and industrial video networks.

Contemporary Research SW-DX Display Express Software

What do stadiums, arenas, casinos, entertainment venues, as well as civic, church and corporate video systems around the country share in common? The sites have many displays, TVs, and video projectors already connected together over the RF coax cable system. To create an integrated display control system, you could run new Ethernet or control wires to all the sets, but that’s an expensive option. With Display Express, you have all the benefits of Web-driven Ethernet control, while using the control wire that’s already there - the existing RF cable.
