Contemporary Research ICC1-IRX Overview

The Contemporary Research ICC1-IRX IR TV Controller provides one-way control over power, volume, and NTSC/HDTV channel tuning on your IR format TVs, LCDs, and Plasma displays. It receives iCC-Net network commands over the same broadband coax that carries the CATV channels. This compact unit can be networked with up to 4,000 displays using the Contemporary Research head end units.

The ICC1-IRX IR TV controller features power current sensing using the Xantech CSM1 sensor (not included). It is suitable for applications that include signage and video distribution for schools, colleges, sports venues, corporates, places of worship, and entertainment spaces.

Controls most brands of IR-controlled TVs
Sends IR commands for discrete power, on and off, analog and HD tuning, and volume
Manages channel access by changing the TV's internal available channel list
Delivers power control using the optional Xantech CSM1 power current sensor, or optional CC-HSD scan sensor for older tube TVs
Networks up to 4,000 TVs through the ICE-HE Ethernet Head-End (not included)
Receives one-way individual and zone commands from a single RS-232 port on the Head-End
Operates over same RF coax cable as CATV channels
SmartZone architecture controls hundreds of controllers with a single command
Low-loss internal RF tap saves amplification and installation costs
Provides LED feedback for network, IR control, and power status
Restores all power and channel status after loss of power from the on-board database
Mounts on the back of the TV for simplified control and RF installation
Operates with Contemporary Research Display Express software as well as from RS-232 protocol from a custom-programmed PC or control system
