I looked at a bar the other day that wants to do some updates. They have about 25 displays that all appear to have a DTV box behind them. I'm assuming they all run Moca. They currently use the DTV app to control each box. Occasionally, a few of the boxes will fall off or disappear and they have reboot that box at that TV.

Of course the install is a bit of a wreck. Basically, it's a rack in the corner of the kitchen, caked with dust and grease. Overall though, it works for the most part.

My question is, what is the next logical step to make it work better? To start at least, my gut says move to some sort of matrix setup, 8x32 let's say. Then use RTI or something for a real control system while saving them a fair amount of money each month on all the DTV boxes.

Thanks,
Tom

Check out Just Add Power. There is no need to do any sort of set input/output matrix. You buy the inputs and outputs that you need to match the system. Get super fast video switching and a bullet proof video distribution platform.

They arenít paying per receiver on a commercial DirecTV account. The fee is based on occupancy not receiver count.

Visionary Solutions has a HD over IP with a great RTI driver. Less set up and compression than JAP.

Didn't even think about that. So if they go from 25 receivers to 5 there would be no change in billing?
