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.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
