Things to Know

  • Major cable, satellite and IPTV providers are offering a smaller set top box (sometimes referred to as a DTA) since the majority of customers want to locate the set top box next to the cardio equipment (typically at the base of the cardio).
  • The CAB is plug-n-play and does not need to learn IR commands. Unlike some wireless devices that need to learn IR commands in the field, the CAB is preprogrammed prior to shipping and can be easily updated onsite.
  • The CAB can control ANY set top box (cable, satellite, IPTV etc.) and the set top box can be located next to the cardio equipment or remotely located, back in an A/V closet for instance.
  • The CAB can control set top boxes for Pro:Idiom® and Verimatrix™ decryption.
  • The CAB controls Broadcastvision personal viewing screens and other fitness brand TVs using the integrated entertainment console controls on the cardio equipment.
  • The CAB allows you to use integrated controls to control set top boxes on popular cardio equipment brands such as Precor®, Life Fitness®, Matrix®, True®, Cybex®, Spirit® and others.
  • The CAB eliminates the hand-held battery operated remote control provided by the cable, satellite & IPTV provider.
  • The CAB keeps the set top boxes awake so they don‘t go into sleep mode.
  • The CAB is small enough (3" x 1.5" x .75") that it can be hidden on the back of the TV, under the console or in a raceway system.
  • The CAB is the market leader in providing cardio entertainment control of set top boxes. Unlike costly, overly complicated wireless RF systems, the CAB is a simple, cost-effective, plug-n-play solution. Potential issues using an RF wireless system include:
    • A transmitter and a receiver are required per piece of cardio equipment.
    • The transmitter and receiver need to be powered.
    • The receiver will need to be located per the wireless guidelines so there are no signal issues.
    • Most facilities are equipped with coax cable that has been split to each piece of cardio equipment so locating the cable or satellite box next to, or close to, the cardio equipment is usually the most cost effective.
    • Wireless RF control systems add a needless point of failure.
    • Wireless systems may not be programmed with the necessary IR codes to operate with your cable or satellite boxes. Instead, the installer has to configure the wireless system to learn the IR codes. The CAB is pre-programmed with the necessary IR codes for a cost-effective, plug-n-play solution that can also be easily updated onsite.
