Black Creek's TV Signal Distribution System facilitates flexible, customizable television programming and signal distribution within your correctional facility. The system works by encoding incoming signals from cable, satellite, or local origin and distributing these signals over an Ethernet-based local area network (LAN). The signals are then decoded at multiple TV sets in accordance with programming established by the facility management.
The system can be configured to show daily, weekly or ad hoc scheduling for each display and channels can be configured to change automatically throughout the day without staff intervention. The system even allows for facility advertisements or information screens using industry-standard html coding. In addition, the system integrates with existing cable or dish networks—extending the use of utilities.
