Full Description & Specifications

The ICC1-232 RS-232 TV Controller delivers versatile 1-way control for power, volume, channels, and available control lockout commands, receiving iCC-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 input source selection.

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 Ethernet port on an ICE-HE-DXL Display Control Center.

Applications include media distribution and control for educational television systems, theme parks, museums, government facilities, arenas, convention centers, airports, and corporate video networks.
