The ICC-PRZ Smart Display Controllers communicate over the same RF coax that carries the CATV channels. Taking advantage of Smart TV technology by PDI/Philips (ICC-P), RCA (ICC-R), and LG/Zenith (ICC-Z), the ICC-PRZ controllers connect to the TV's Smart TV port. Through this connection, the units use the TV's onboard IR sensor, character generator, and tuner to deliver cost-effective network TV and media management.
All the critical information—including the list of channel presets (tuning ring), power and volume level status, and operation settings, is stored the the card's on non-volatile memory. As a result, operation isn't affected if the TV loses power or is replaced.
The ICC2-PRZ Smart TV Controllers feature 2-way control and feedback over the CATV cable, allowing interactive system control. For example, commands from a room's IR wireless remote can be sent to an integrated control system to operate remote media sources. Information concerning the TV's current channel, power status, settings, device number, and firmware version can be monitored by the system.
The ICC1-PRZ Smart TV Controllers receive 1-way commands, providing a cost-effective solution for systems that simply want to manage power, change channels and send text messages to TVs.
Compatible with the Contemporary Research ABC-Net Media Network and iC Commander software applications, the ICC-PRZ controllers can be networked with up to 4000 TV and Video Display controllers. For custom systems applications, all Smart TV Controllers and other CR devices can be accessed from a single RS-232 port on an ICE-HE Ethernet Head-End.
Applications include media distribution and control for educational television systems, theme parks, museums, government facilities, arenas, convention centers, airports and corporate video networks.
