T3 Universal Controller

Quick Overview

This model discontinued

The T3 is RTI's ultimate handheld universal controller. With a full color TFT LCD display, powerful 32-bit MCU, 32MB of memory, the T3 takes remote control to a new level.

The amazing T3 Universal System Controller combines the power and flexibility of a graphic LCD touchscreen with an ergonomic design that permits effortless one-handed operation. On its own, the T3 is the most user-friendly universal remote control you have ever used. Combined with the other RTI accessory products, the T3 becomes a robust commercial-quality control system

The T3 maintains the perfect balance between a large touchscreen and frequently used hard buttons. It is thinner, lighter, and has better ergonomics for one-handed operation than any product in its class. This design overcomes the need for compromise between form and function. Sleek and perfectly balanced, the T3 is also infinitely flexible and expandable.

The T3 takes complete control of the home theater, replacing all other remotes. It features a bright, high-contrast TFT LCD that can display custom buttons, text, graphics, and animations. In addition to the backlit display, there are 16 hard buttons that allow easy access to frequently used functions. Programming is easy and convenient thanks to the Windows-based Integration Designer software*.

The T3 is more than just a universal remote control - it's an expandable control system. When used with the available RTI accessory devices, the T3 is capable of RF transmission through walls and cabinets, power sensing for reliable operation, and RS-232 communications for advanced control.

NOTE: For RF control, a 433MHz antenna must be used with this model of remote. It is not compatible with the ZM-24 2.4 GHz Transceiver Module.

*Integration Designer software only available to authorized RTI dealers.
