HDTV Tuning & Control over COAX
Founded by Scott Hetzler in 1994, CR began with a vision for
creating solutions that easily integrate with leading control
systems such as AMX, Crestron, and other control systems.
Prior to founding CR, Scott was the leading designer for many
award-winning AMX control products.
Today's CR remains tightly focused on creating solutions for
systems integrators, with a core team of well-known control
industry experts.

Why RF?
Why integrate HD media and control over coax?


Because it’s there – Re-use and Recycle
Earn LEED Innovation Points for control of displays
What about new construction?

Cost - RF is a cost-effective HD content delivery system
Bandwidth – 5 times greater than IP
Distance – measured in miles, not feet
Simplicity – No hubs, Cat 5 receivers, transmitters or HD video router –
just wire, all core components at one central Head End
Reliability – CR coax control systems in place for over 12 years
Distribution - Bandwidth
IP
RF
1 Gbps
5.2 Gbps
Ethernet
1 Gbps bandwidth over copper.
Bandwidth for media shared with
other IP resources, potentially
bogging down the network
Digital RF Coax
5.2 Gbps bandwidth for 135 HDTV
cable channels
(38.3 Mbps x 135)
Each channel can carry two full
HDTV (19.4 Mbps) channels or mix
of HD/SD channels
Media distribution not shared with
data applications
New Construction? Run both for structured wiring. Deliver the best of both, and balance
content delivery to suit the application. Digital TV is IPTV., just without the mess.

Originate Channels


Create a mix of in-house cable channels from sat/cable
boxes, digital signage players, HD-SDI studio feeds,
IPTV, off-air tuners, and other media sources.
Combine into a facility-wide RF feed.
Digital Signage - IP
 IP digital signage is
addition
 Each display needs
a player
 But what if all
players are
showing the same
message?
Digital Signage - RF
 RF digital signage
is multiplication
 One player feeds
an HDTV channel
 TVs simply tune in
