RTI Introduces Advanced Remote Control Processor

The Compact RP-6 Provides Faster and More Reliable Control of Any Size Home Theater at an Affordable Price

CHANHASSEN, MN — July 1, 2004 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), the leader in innovative home control solutions, announced the introduction of the new RP-6 Remote Control Processor. The RP-6 is a centralized signal processor with the power to give users fast, easy and reliable control over any size system. Whether covering a single home theater or a multi-room home automation system, the RP-6 is the perfect centerpiece for a comprehensive home entertainment control solution. Scheduled for release this summer, the RP-6 (MSRP: $599) will be available to custom installers nationwide through AVAD’s distribution network (www.avad.com).

“The RP-6 delivers a powerful and affordable control solution for today’s complex home electronics systems,” said Pete Baker, director of sales at RTI. “Building on ten years of research, design, and feedback, our engineers rolled all of the features dealers have asked for in control solutions into one small magic box. Installers can instantly tailor the size and scope of their RTI control system—-adding and removing devices at any time—-and the RP-6 has the power to adapt, putting complete control into one intuitive remote control.”

The RP-6 Remote Control Processor simplifies all the signal communication and distribution functions necessary for controlling today’s advanced entertainment systems, centralizing the power at the processor. Previously, operating platforms with a single universal remote control would result in lost or incomplete commands and macro sequences due to many environmental and performance limitations. The RP-6 ensures powerful and precise signal transmission, foregoing use of an internal receiver, and using standard IR emitters and repeater systems, which allow installers to instantly scale an RTI control system to the scope or complexity of any project. The RP-6 also stores and dispatches all macro strings and IR codes from its processor, requiring only a single IR or RF trigger command for perfect execution of macros every time.

For intelligent power management, RTI designed video and voltage-sensing modules to monitor the status the RP-6’s supported components. The company also offers an RS-232 interface, allowing installers to easily integrate the RP-6 with today’s popular home automation networks.

The RP-6 Remote Control Processor measures just 9.3″W x 5.3″H x 1.5″D and weighs only 1 lb. 3 oz., so installers can easily hide the unit or mount it within a cabinet. It features 6 front panel multi-purpose I/O ports (with short-circuit and overload protection, and variable IR power output), 3 programmable relay outputs, and an RS-485 jack for future expansion. Top panel LEDs make it easy to monitor signal transmission status.
