Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to simplify the firmware process and allow the user to determine which products they want to update? Now there is! CR Toolbox is a universal application designed for compatible Contemporary Research (CR) products. CR Toolbox enables users to ensure all products are on the network and working properly, easily perform maintenance, confirm firmware versions and update as desired. Its ease of use and ability to view all CR devices on the network at a single glance will save both time and money.
CR Toolbox was developed by the CR tech support and engineering team in response to customer requests to view all CR devices on their network in one place at the same time. CR Toolbox is a Windows application, compatible with versions XP SP3 through Windows 10 and can be downloaded from the software tools section of contemporaryresearch.com at no cost!
After downloading and launching, CR Toolbox will automatically search for and locate connected CR devices and browse each onboard webpage. It can then be used to update individual, multiple, or all devices. CR Toolbox currently supports QMOD HDTV Modulator-IPTV Encoders, QIP IPTV Encoders, ATSC-series HDTV Tuners, and the ICE-HE-DXL Display Control Center and includes the most recent firmware versions for these devices.
Providing AV integrators tools to perform maintenance more quickly and ensure all products are on the network and working properly is a priority for Contemporary Research. The CR Toolbox application lists all product serial numbers and firmware versions in case any tech support is needed, and it simplifies the firmware process and allows users to determine which products they want to update. These features save time since the user does not have to open individual web page for each product to determine firmware.
CR Toolbox was developed specifically for AV integration and technical support is available for all customers Monday-Friday 8am-5pm CST. To learn more about CR Toolbox’s features or download the software, click here.
