Press Release - Broadcastvision Expands CAB and Personal Viewing Screen Controller Innovations

Broadcastvision Entertainment – releases version 3.0 CAB to enable popular Matrix 7XE series cardio equipment to operate with integrated TV console tuner and Cable, Satellite or IPTV set top boxes. The CAB provides owner flexibility, increased channel line-up, and cost savings of set top box operation and frees exercisers from hand-held remote controls. The CAB is compatible with major brands of cardio equipment including Matrix 1, 3, 5 and 7XE series, Precor cardio equipment with console controls, Life Fitness Inspire, Integrity & Discover, Star Trac generation 1 and 2, FreeMotion 7 and 11 series, and many more.

In addition to the CAB (console adapter box) upgrades, the Axcess Universal Controller is the only fitness entertainment controller that offers menu navigation and allows exercisers to operate any Cable, Satellite or IPTV set top boxes in conjunction with any manufacturer’s personal viewing screen. This eliminates the burdensome handheld remote control unit and expensive modulation of MDTA Multiplexor systems. The exerciser obtains audio and controls the personal viewing screen with just the Axcess Universal Controller, “Head end modulating signal equipment can cost a club operator thousands of dollars and limits channel selections. The CAB and Universal Controller operate the Cable, Satellite or IPTV set top box to provide more channels and HD content  at lower cost,” says Mark Blake, COO of Broadcastvision Entertainment.

Broadcastvision designed the CAB and Universal Controller to work with other entertainment brand personal viewing screens and controllers like Cardio Theater, CardioVision and MYE Entertainment. “Many clubs are upgrading to our CAB or Universal Controller even if they are not required to have a set top box for each piece of equipment. They are impressed with the amount of features we offer and feel secure knowing the product is future proof if/when they are required to have a set top box,” says Blake.
