ELAN Home Systems New VIA!7- and 10-Inch In-Wall Color Touch Panels Now Shipping

LEXINGTON, KY — ELAN Home Systems, a leading manufacturer of award-winning Multi-Room audio/video and home control systems, announced today that the newest additions to its VIA! Touch Panel family, VIA!7.0-EM and VIA! 10.0-EM, are now shipping to Dealers. The announcement was made by Bob Farinelli, ELAN’s President and Chief Technical Officer.

ELAN’s VIA! Touch Panels have been the value leaders in their class since their initial roll-out in 2000. The award-winning, first stand-alone touch panel to deliver live video monitoring capabilities, VIA! set, and continues to set, new bench-marks for affordable, full-featured, whole-house control of entertainment, lighting, security, and more.

The newest VIA! product offerings include two models featuring 7″ and 10″ displays with widescreen landscape formats that combine elegance with the traditional VIA! strengths of ultra-fast response, reliable execution, awesome live video and ease of programming. The VIA!10.0-EM’s large, wide-screen viewing area also makes it an ideal in-wall monitor that suits locations where clients desire control married with a TV. Shipping right on the heels of ELAN’s VIA!4.0-EM controller, both new panels offer the same low profiles and decor-matching frame options in more expansive displays.

“With the addition of these models, improved price points across the entire line, the Ole Touchpad family, and the new N800 Handheld Controller, we are putting the most unique and consistently reliable line up of touch interfaces in our Dealers hands,” said Mr. Farinelli. “The eight touch interface products from ELAN are sure to have something to suit every job and client.”

The new VIA! panels offer all the features that made ELAN’s time-tested VIA!6.4 one of the best-selling in-wall touch panels on the market, including one-touch access to audio and video, lighting, temperature and security systems, real-time video monitoring, customizable layouts, room-matching screen motifs and frames, ease of programming, and more. New screen graphics have also recently been added that, when coupled with the matching frames, provide remarkable in-home solutions that can be mixed or precisely matched throughout the house to suit personal tastes and decors.

The introduction of the new VIA! Touch Panels are easy to program with ELAN’s latest version of VIA!TOOLS programming software. This setup software includes new in 2007 pre-written two-way serial drivers for the control of Lutron RadioRA lighting and DSC, Elk, Honeywell and GE security systems. With their larger screen sizes and expanded function page capabilities, the new VIA!7.0-EM and VIA!10.0-EM are particularly well-suited for controlling and displaying real-time status feedback of these systems.

In addition, the units feature ports for local RJ-45, power and Sense Input Triggers located on the back of the unit which not only provide added capability but also make the installers’ job easier, saving time and cost for all. Also compatible with every ELAN multi-room controller, any VIA! panel model can also be used with most any home system, even ones offered by other audio/video manufacturers, for seamless integration.

ELAN’s VIA!7.0-EM and VIA!10.0-EM are now shipping at MSRPS of $1,400 and $1,800, respectively. Now with MSRPs ranging from $380 to $2000, ELAN’s VIA! and Ole product lines offer eight outstanding touch interface solutions that make having one in every room a reality for more people.
