Introducing the All New Webinar Series from IC Realtime

A new look with great new content.

As Product Specialist and Training Director for IC Realtime, I wanted to create a new look and feel for our weekly webinars. I believe webinars are an important way to communicate with our customers.  A great webinar should be interesting and informative all the while keeping the viewers interest.  A new design has been created that brings synergy between all of our online content with a look and feel that is both familiar and pleasing.

As with all webinars, content is king, that’s why with a new look, comes new content.  These new topics we will be covering will be much more comprehensive and useful to our dealers.  Coming from our IC Realtime tech support team I feel I have a great deal of insight into the needs of your everyday security installer.  Providing great information is key, from configuration of IP based recorders and cameras to remote access setup.  Here are just a few of the new topics we will be covering…

  1. Recommended Equipment for Installation and Maintenance – This is a great webinar that helps prepare both new and seasoned installers to understand what they need for a quick and successful install. It covers what tools you are going to need before arriving on site, as well as why you’ll need them. Tools such as a VGA monitor, PC laptop, or our ITM-9000 configuration tool.
  2. Cyber Security – This webinar which premiered in early October explains some of the ways you can minimize vulnerabilities.  Vulnerabilities such as default usernames and passwords on both our recorders and end user’s routers/modems.  We also cover safe port forwarding procedures, port forwarding alternatives such as our P2P service, and the disabling of non-essential services on the recorder or IP camera.

This is just the beginning of the fantastic new content coming from IC Realtime.   For the weekly schedule go to

Very soon we will also be hosting recorded versions of these great new webinars on our website

Monitor Audio 6th Generation Silver Series

Ground breaking design changes and extensive engineering research have led to a completely revised Silver Series from Monitor Audio which now caters to all two-channel hi-fi and surround applications.

The nine model range has been created with contemporary living very much in mind. Two compact stand-mount options and a choice of three slimline floorstanders take up the minimum of space yet produce a big sound, while the Silver FX wall-mount and two center channel speakers are perfect for discreet AV installations. The Silver Series is completed with a powered subwoofer, featuring on board DSP for resounding bass down to a staggering 22 Hz. Magnetic grille fixings on all models (except the subwoofer) ensure an elegant baffle aided by rear mounting of the proprietary HiVe II ports. All models are available in gorgeous Walnut, Rosenut, and Black Oak wood veneers, as well as a premium Black Gloss finish and new Satin White finish.

The familiar award-winning format of the Silver 2, Silver 8 and Silver 10 have been retained, yet improved to form the new Silver 100, Silver 300 and Silver 500, Silver FX and Silver W-12 models. However, all other models have changed significantly with the introduction of Silver 50, Silver 200, Silver C150 and Silver C350. The two new center speakers now make it possible to assemble discreet, stylish or large, powerful home theater systems. The Silver 50 and Silver 200 are now more compact, providing a more attractive proposition for modern living spaces, yet delivering the same kind of performance expected from much larger speakers.

If you love fabulous design and demand the highest sound quality, Monitor Audio’s latest range has been created to meet your needs so that accurate audio and design perfection come together in your home.
