Torrance, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2005
Broadata Communications Inc. has been named by Crestron Inc. as an approved source for the transmission of CrestronÂs ÂCresnetTMÂ control signaling over fiber optic cabling. As a result, Crestron has named BCI an ÂOfficial Crestron Integration Partner.Â After extensive, in-house lab testing at Crestron, and field testing for over 2 years in a hotel and convention center environment, BCIÂs 288 Series and the ConciergeTM FiberstationTM have been approved as products that seamlessly and accurately transport ÂCresnetTMÂ signals over fiber.
Don Hosmer, National Sales Manager for BCI, said, ÂBroadata Communications is proud to become an Official Integration Partner with Crestron. Now, CrestronÂs customersÂ have a number of choices for reliable, quality products that can extend ÂCresnetTMÂ signals long distances over fiber.Â
ÂMany of our installations in the university and corporate environment require systems to communicate over long distance.Â Says Chris Wildfoerster, director, market development for Crestron, ÂBroadata provides reliable fiber solutions for those applications.Â
BCI Âs two models, the 288 and ConciergeTM FiberstationTM include other audio/video/data transmission functionality in addition to the ÂCresnetTMÂ signal transport capabilities, and are available in both Multimode and Singlemode fiber, as well as Âone fiberÂ solutions. Typical applications for the 2 products include allowing the installation of a Crestron touch screen panel at a very far distance from the controller unit. This also allows for centralization of multiple controllers in a single equipment rack and the sending of ÂCresnetTMÂ signals far beyond the capabilities of copper wiring.
The 288 series model transports RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485, including the ÂCresnetTMÂ data format, along with 2 channels of bi-directional Mic level, Line level or Phantom Power analog audio. The ConciergeTM FiberstationTM is a miniature, audio/video/data, fiber optic transport platform, designed to install into industry standard floor and wall boxes. It is perfect for audio/video/data communications in hotels, convention centers, theaters, theme parks, and performing art centers. All models are available in standalone or card cage versions. Custom configurations, including ÂCresnetTMÂ data only models, and OEM versions are also available.
