ICC-PSC Series Philips Cards

Contemporary Research offers a simple solution for intelligent television control and interactive distributed media management, the PSC Philips Smart Cards. The ICC2-PSC communicates bi-directionally over the same RF coax that carries the CATV channels, while the ICC1-PSC receives 1-way commands over RF. Older Philips “P” series require the PSC-series cards, newer Philips TVs use the low-profile PSC2-series cards.
Integrators have a choice of control for new Philips LCD and Plasma displays that use the optional SmartCard Express Box. Use the ICC-PSC2 series card if the display is equipped with the Express Box. As the Express Box and install/power supply kit is an extra-cost option, you can control the display directly with the ICC-P series TV Controllers.
All PSC cards take advantage of Philips SmartCard TV technology. Inserting into the SmartCard card slot, the PSC cards use the TV's internal IR sensor, character generator, and tuner to deliver cost-effective network TV and media management. The cards are available optionally with external S-Video and composite AV input connections (shown above).
