The course will be taught by Doug Engstrom, Vice President Communications and Technical Support at Contemporary Research. Engstrom spent forty years in the AV industry, serving as an International Communications Industries Association (ICIA) instructor for control systems, in design support with AMX and Crestron, and as a systems integrator.

“There are three pathways for distributing digital media facility-wide: IPTV, Cat5 video, and RF coax. While interest in IPTV is high, actual adoption of IPTV has been slow. Cat5 video requires dedicated home-run wiring limited to 300 feet. At the same time, digital RF installations have been exploding. Why? RF is digital media distribution, simplified,” Engstrom stated.

“In this course we’ll learn how RF systems work, and how digital RF channels are encoded, integrated, distributed and tuned. We’ll explore the cross-point between RF HDTV and IPTV, as well as how to integrate TV control through the RF network,” he said.
