Contemporary Research Says Going Green Benefits the Bottom Line and the Planet

Nissen Davis July 7th, 2009

Dallas,TX - Contemporary Research, designer and maker of state-of-the-art audio visual technology and software to originate, integrate, and display high definition TV content, believes in creating products that are beneficial to the planet as well as to the bottom line, according to president Scott Hetzler.

Rather than installing new copper wiring for large-scale display networks, Contemporary Research integrates displays over existing coax RF cables, avoiding waste and lowering the cost for HD video and control distribution.

"We engineer all our products to draw the lowest possible power, and use powder-coated metal enclosures instead of plastic," Hetzler said. "Our low voltage products meet California energy and RoHS safety standards, we use lead-free solder and components in our manufacturing process, and we employ energy-efficient switching power supplies to reduce power consumption."

Hetzler says his firm buys locally wherever possible to reduce the carbon dioxide footprint associated with long-haul trucking and shipping, recycles packaging materials, and supports suppliers who have "green" shipping policies and use less packaging materials.

"Our 'Just In Time' production system not only improves quality and saves money, it also reduces waste. One of our goals is to attain full cycle manufacturing, where nothing leaves our plant other than our products.

"We believe our planet is our responsibility, and we're doing our part to make the world a better place to live in, for now and in the future,” Hetzler concluded.

Contemporary Research HDTV tuners, modulators, and display control systems are at work in leading sports, retail and entertainment facilities, broadcast studios, corporate offices, federal, state and local government agencies, hospitals, casinos, colleges, schools and worship centers.
