What is IRS?
An Integrated Reception Systems (IRS) collects the broadcast signals from terrestrial (analogue & digital) and satellite transmitters, as well as FM radio and the new Digital Audio Broadcasts (DAB). All of these signals are then distributed to a new 3 socket wall outlet plate in each flat, which is screened from electrical interference and which delivers all available TV channels, including both analogue and digital terrestrial, and digital satellite including Sky Q with new hybrid technologies DSCR to the resident. Direct Systems are members of the CAI Confederation of Aerial Installers
Installing IRS means that the resident is free to decide to either connect their existing TV equipment to the system to pick up the existing free-to-air analogue signals, (until they are switched off), or to take up digital satellite or digital terrestrial television, now or in the future. This solution means that the landlord installing IRS does not have to favor any one particular supplier of TV programming. The choice is left to the resident.
