Contemporary Research Launches CTS Course on Digital RF

Digital RF- The Simple Solution to Distribute Digital Media

Addison TX - December 8, 2014 - Contemporary Research will launch its new Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) course Digital RF- The Simple Solution to Distribute Digital Media at its annual meeting for dealers, consultants and end users in Addison TX on Friday, January 16, 2015.


The course will be taught by Doug Engstrom, Vice President Communications and Technical Support, who has spent 40 years in the AV industry, serving as an International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) instructor for control systems, in design support with AMX and Crestron, and as a systems integrator.

"There are three pathways for distributing digital media facility-wide - IPTV, Cat5 video, and RF Coax. While interest in IPTV is high, actual adoption of IPTV has been slow. Cat5 video requires dedicated home-run wiring limited to 300 feet. At the same time, digital RF installations have been exploding. Why? RF is digital media distribution - simplified," Engstrom stated.

"In this course we'll learn how RF systems work, and how digital RF channels are encoded, integrated, distributed and tuned. We'll explore the cross-point between RF HDTV and IPTV, as well as how to integrate TV control through the RF network," he said.

Integrators, consultants and end users who are interested in attending the free CTS Training course are encouraged to visit our website at http://contemporaryresearch.com/sales/2015-gala/ to learn more about the training or to register.

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
