IRS

Integrated Reception System

An IRS Digital System allows you to deliver multiple signals from an array of antennas, a typical system would include a TV aerial, FM and DAB aerials and Satellite antenna which are then distributed normally via 2 coaxial cables to multiple viewing points, or a resident’s accommodation.

This type of installation is typically suited to Social Housing, Local authorities, Private Landlords and Commercial builders.

The IRS system’s Cables normally terminate at the main TV point in the resident’s property giving them the capability for services such as Sky, Sky+, Sky HD, Freesat, Freeview, DAB & FM radio all at one location.

This then allows the resident flexibility of choosing which TV channels they would like to receive or enter into a subscription package with their preferred supplier.

There is also the capability of adding in other satellite antennas to distribute foreign channels, This would entail a larger headend but the advantages are that it would negate the need for residents installing their own satellite dishes on the building.

All systems by SCS are installed in accordance with Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) standards, SCS being one of a select few companies to be an Approved Systems Installer gained by our engineers undergoing the CAI SMATV and IRS training course.

IRS – SCR Integrated Reception System with Satellite Channel Router

An IRS-SCR Digital System is similar to the IRS system but in cases where only one cable has originally been installed to the resident’s property, this would have been prior to additional services that are now offered by SKY where the requirement of viewing one channel whilst recording another has now become standard.

This type of installation is typically suited to Social Housing, Local authorities, Private Landlords and Commercial builders who want to upgrade their existing IRS installations so that they are compatible with Sky+, Sky HD without the cost of installing new cabling to the resident’s property, sometimes this is no longer an option due to the building fabric being changed over time.

Satellite Channel Routing (SCR) technology has been developed to allow a single cable to be used and the existing satellite switches are replaced for SCR switches, it is also sometimes described as Single Cable Routing.

Because the switch is backwards compatible, it can be installed into the existing systems without the need to enter the resident’s property.

Without the need of an engineer the resident can then change the settings in the SKY receiver (as long as it is compatible, normally SKY + or SKY HD receivers) and receive the new functionality of viewing one channel whilst recording another.

All systems by SCS are installed in accordance with Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) standards, SCS being one of a select few companies to be an Approved Systems Installer gained by our engineers undergoing the CAI SMATV and IRS training course.
