Contemporary Research - Display Express Systems

At Contemporary Research, we look at RF systems through the lens of integration. For that reason, we created a facility-wide TV and media control system that operates over the same RF cable as the channels. In use for over 15 years, the system has proved to be extremely reliable and simplified site’s transition from analog to digital channels. The success of Display Express control rests in its simplicity. Start with a selection of in-house channels, add our DX software or a custom control processor, distribute control over RF, and then integrate controllers at each TV, monitor or projector.
