Contemporary Research introduces a new solution for display system control and distributed media management, the ICE-HE Ethernet Head-End. Through a single Ethernet port, the ICE-HE can network thousands of iC-Net TV controllers, communicating over the same CATV cable that carries the media channels.

The industry-standard iC-Net protocol operates seamlessly over Ethernet networks, RS-232 control ports, RF coax, Cat5 wiring, and fiber optic cables. Custom control systems, and ICE ToolKit and iCE Director software can easily integrate all TVs, video projectors, and plasma displays across a facility or campus.

The ICE-HE can distribute 2-way iCC-Net data over existing CATV RF cable. Employing clear-channel RF frequencies to transmit and receive data, the iCC-Net network is compatible with most CATV systems without conflicting with existing TV channels. The bi-directional network operates over a standard low-split cable system, simplifying installation and support.

Control data can also be transmitted over Category 5 and Category 3 wiring, using the ICE-HE iCW-Net ports. Three iCW-Net ports are included, each capable of connecting thousands of ICW-Net format controllers over wiring runs of up to 3,300 feet (1 Km). In addition, iCW-Net data can be sent to remote locations over fiber and videoconferencing codecs.
