Two of RTI’s Home Control Products Chosen for Exceptional Innovation, Functionality and Value
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN — November 20, 2006 — Remote Technologies Inc, the leading manufacturer in home control products, is pleased to announce the selection of the RK3 In-Wall Touchpanel and the T4 Universal System Controller as 2006 Multi-Room Audio/Video (MRAV) Award winners. Sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and held in conjunction with the Electronic House Fall EXPO at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif., the MRAV awards recognize significant contributions to the multi-room audio and video market. The RK3 was honored in the Multi-Room Touchscreen $500-$1,000 category. The T4 took top honors in the Multi-Room Touchscreen More than $1,000 category.
“We are extremely thrilled that the MRAV panel of judges has recognized the value, innovation and functionality of the RK3 In-Wall Touchpanel and the T4 Universal Controller,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “RTI takes pride in manufacturing the highest quality in customizable control products. It’s quite satisfying to have our efforts recognized by this awards program.”
The RK3 In-Wall Touchpanel allows users to control entertainment and convenience systems throughout the home. The RK3,which mounts flush in a wall, features a 3.5″ color LCD touchpanel that is small enough to subtly integrate with any room’s decor, yet is detailed enough to display text, graphics, and animations with crisp clarity. The controller is now available exclusively to custom installers at an MSRP of $999.00.
The RK3 was developed to provide a flexible interface that can control entertainment systems such as distributed music systems as well as adjust environmental/lifestyle functions such as lighting, HVAC, and motorized window curtains. Users can even operate pools and fountains with the RK3. The in-wall controller’s 10/100Base-T Ethernet port enables use with IP-based components, whose expansive benefits are appearing within virtually every aspect of home life.
Already the recipient of multiple industry accolades, including the Electronic House Product of the Year Award, the T4 Universal Controller is the ideal handheld controller for users who want complete access to all of the functions of home theaters and other multi-component audio/video systems. The T4 uses a touch-sensitive, full VGA, active, color LCD that provides full control over any size system with a graphics-based interface that is intuitive enough for anyone to pick up and use. The T4 is available now to custom installers at an MSRP of $2,499.00.
All aspects of the T4 have been designed to blend with the aesthetics of any home. Its open platform allows total integration with even the most advanced audio/video components. A 6.4″ TFT LCD uses full VGA resolution to display motion JPEG video with great detail, as well as custom buttons, graphics, and animations. The controller’s 400MHz, 32-bit processor is powerful enough to simultaneously implement these processes smoothly and instantly. The built-in 802.11 wireless card allows for IP control of devices such as MJPEG security cameras, music servers, and web browsing through Internet Explorer. RTI makes it easy to customize the T4 with its TheaterTouch Designer software, which has become an industry revered platform for remote programming.
