The Contemporary Research ICC1-232 Display Controller provides access to power control, channel tuning, volume control, and local control lockout via RS-232, receiving iCC-Net network commands over the same broadband coax that carries the CATV channels. This compact unit is designed for use with flat panel displays that are equipped with a built-in tuner. It features discrete power control and intelligent tuning from a channel list stored in the onboard database. Tuning options include analog and HDTV format channels, as well as AV inputs.
High-speed one-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 SignStream, iC-Web, and iC Commander software, the controller can be networked with up to 4,000 displays. For custom systems applications, this RS-232 controller and other CR display controllers can be accessed from a single RS-232 or Telnet port on an ICE-HE Ethernet Head End (available separately). It is suitable for applications that include signage and video distribution for schools, retail stores, sports venues, corporate buildings, civic facilities, places of worship, entertainment spaces, and corporate communication
