Remote Technologies introduced its new flagship wireless touchpanel for high-end entertainment systems at EHX Fall 2005. The T4 Universal Controller, showcasing at RTI’s Booth 1220, is the ideal handheld control 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 will be exclusively to custom installers in the first quarter of 2006 with an MSRP of $2,499.00.
“The T4’s is the perfect solution for a custom installed home theater or board room,” said Pete Baker, director of worldwide sales at RTI. “The T4 incorporates a gorgeous 6.4″ Color Touchscreen with enough screen real estate to organize the touchscreen, with great graphics, in a very intuitive format; without limiting the functionality. And its ergonomics make it comfortable for anyone to enjoy using, even for smaller hands.”
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. RTI makes it easy to customize the T4 with its TheaterTouch Designer software, which has become an industry revered platform for remote programming.
In addition to limitless software customization, the T4 provides outstanding hardware adaptability. The unit’s front and rear panels have replaceable color bezels to match surrounding décor, and users can change the color of the 13 keys or remove them entirely.
The T4’s flexibility extends beyond its appearance. RTI’s EM-4 Expansion Module allows it to be transformed into a hardwired VESA mountable touchpanel with power-over-Ethernet and dual analog video input ports. In addition, available RTI accessory devices provide the T4 with power-sensing for reliable operation, and RS-232 communications for advanced control.
