Visit Antiference at ISE 2017

Our sponsor Antiference is excited to be back at ISE 2017 to showcase a selection of exciting new developments in HDBase-T matrix products plus the all new HDMI – DVB-T modulatorsFrom the launch in 2014 the UHD Trucolour HDBase-T POE matrix range has evolved and developed into an exciting option for HD distribution with an on-board control system and remote management system. Now encompassing the Neo branding the range offers lots of choice for the installer and user with HDCP 2.2 support in 4x4, 6x6 and a modular 8x8 solution plus now works with Alexa!Each Trucolour neo matrix features a CEC based control system as standard which allows the user to control the matrix, sources and even devices such as AVR's (where CEC is supported) using the TV's original remote control. This means the matrix turns the TV's remote control into a universal handset meaning an expensive control system is not required (CEC is required in all devices). The remote management system allows the installer to provide a higher level of customer service by managing the system via a portal in which details of the system can be checked and firmware updated etc. This is accessed via a unique installer ID which can be obtained on request. A new Power Distribution Unit (PDU) has now been added to the range allowing devices to be remotely re-booted should this be required.The latest addition to the product is integration with Alexa. This exciting new voice control system can now be used to control the matrix to switch between sources and power on/off source devices.All of these exciting products and features are on live demonstration at the Antiference stand in hall 9 - the new Smart Homes centre.Other developments from Antiference are new additions to the HDMI modulator range. This alternative HD distribution over a coax cable network is becoming more popular in buildings which re-cabling is not feasible. The Conexer modulator range feature single and quad input models for a variety of applications. New for 2017 is a single input with HDMI loop and IR control in-built plus a USB record/playback feature. Other additions to this product family are the all new Minimod HC products for budget installs and offers single and twin input models.Visit Antiference at stand 9-A164 (hall 9) for more information and live demonstrationsDetails of ISE can be found here..

The RDI are really excited to announce the 5th year sponsorship by Antiference, who was one of the first sponsors of the RDI and over the years has formed a strong relationship with the team. The RDI has been a great platform for Antiference to communicate to the trade and be able to talk about their products and solutions. The network of members are already avid users of Antiference products but the partnership has further created new customers and expanded the products that members are using from the Antiference portfolio.Rubbing shoulders at many tradeshows it is good to see the increasing range of products on offer from Antiference as technology creates new innovations. Their new range of modulators demonstrates this which are popular within the membership network. 2017 will bring further products from Antiference and the RDI are looking forward to being able to share the details. Steve Hutchings from Kent Aerials in a recent case study shared his experience of using Antiference products for some 30 years. He had recently visited a job where there Antiference products were still working some 30 years on. He has always been impressed in the quality and price and is still a keen user.Entering into the 5th year of sponsorship, Beverley, Director of the RDI said 'I have worked with Trevor and his team throughout and I am still impressed by their energy and enthusiasm,' she added, 'to work with such a reputable company and team is really enjoyable and the feedback that we get from our members is great. They love their products and the support that they receive. I am thrilled to be working with them for another year.'Trevor MD of Antiference added 'As we enter our 80th year in business, Antiference are delighted to continue our relationship with the RDI into the 5th year. The proactive nature of the RDI makes them an ideal partner to help Antiference communicate with their members and network. It provides a great outlet to let people know about the new products and innovations from the Antiference team. We look forward to another 12 months of working alongside Bev & her team'Check out their Festive Prize Giveaway for 2016 hereFind Antiference on Twitter here

Avonline sponsors RDI for a fourth year

The RDI are delighted to announce that Avonline plc has chosen to partner with the RDI as a main sponsor for the 4th year running. This is strong testament to the close working relationship that has been established between the two companies and the investment made by both organisations to the member network.The relationship has evolved over the past 3 years primarily supporting Avonline Broadband, the market leader in the UK for satellite broadband. The RDI has been committed to ensuring members and consumers are aware of the latest satellite broadband developments including the latest Superfast 30Mb services offered by Avonline on a nationwide basis. RDI has raised awareness with members and provided the link for them to become resellers and representatives. As Avonline continues to offer a unique range of solutions across the UK, their success in the satellite broadband market is second to none and they actively engage with members to help them to drive forward. The partnership for the RDI will develop further into 2017 as the two organisations seek to extend this important relationship into new areas. As a Services group established back in 1981, as well as being leaders in satellite broadband they are specialists in networks, providing solutions in fibre and copper to next generation networks and commercial flooring, providing services to building contractors and developers. Part of their recent development has been supporting BskyB with the upgrade of communal housing blocks to make them Sky Q ready. The RDI and Avonline have developed a specific model for members to reward both a converted lead for communal blocks suitable for the Sky Q upgrade as well as the installation works. We are pleased to have been able to get our members involved in supporting this project and look forward to many more members getting involved as we race into 2017.Beverley Smith, Director at RDI shared 'Our relationship with Avonline has gone from strength to strength and we truly enjoy working with the senior management team there. We have always been impressed with their positive attitude, passion and professionalism and we are thrilled at the RDI to be working with Avonline for another year.' She added, 'Our aim over the next year is to jointly present more opportunities to our members and to continue to support Avonline in raising their profile.'Mark Wynn, MD of Avonline PLC added 'The RDI is an excellent partner for Avonline. They have a passionate and experienced leadership team and a proactive approach for finding innovative ways for both their members and Avonline to engage in a successful manner. With superfast satellite broadband and the technically superb Sky Q, 2017 should be our most successful partnership year ever."
