RTI Unveils a Number of Innovative New Products at CEDIA EXPO 2013
Product Showcase Will Include New T3x and KX3 Touchscreen Controllers, KX1 OLED In-Wall Keypad, 16x16 Audio Matrix Switcher, and Much More
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Sept. 26, 2013 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that it is showcasing for the first time several new offerings from its extensive product lineup at CEDIA EXPO 2013. The company's newest innovations on display will include the T3x touchscreen controller, KX1 in-wall keypad with OLED display, KX3 advanced in-wall touchscreen controller, and AD-16x 16x16 audio matrix switcher. The solutions are designed to satisfy the control needs of a variety of settings including corporate, education, and home theater spaces.
New at this year's show will be RTI's T3x wireless control interface featuring a flush-mount 3.5-inch color LCD touchscreen with support for a Web browser and MPEG video. The unit features Wi-Fi® support and a dual RF platform for either one-way control via 433-MHz RF or bi-directional communication with RTI processors and supported third-party electronics through 2.4-GHz ZigBee®. Integrated grip sensors and an accelerometer that acts as a tilt switch allow commands via hand movements. Other new features include an ambient light sensor, wireless update capabilities, a docking station, and a thinner, more ergonomic design.
With the new KX1 in-wall keypad, RTI is bringing a 1.2-inch color OLED display with support for two-way control. The KX1 keypad comes equipped with eleven customizable hard buttons for rapid access, a backlit volume level indicator, ambient light sensors, and hardwired Ethernet incorporated into the device.
Ideal for classroom and conference room setups, RTI's KX3 advanced in-wall controller acts as both a touchscreen controller and advanced control processor with a 3.5-inch color LCD display and five customizable hard buttons. With an internal XP series processor and ZigBee antenna, the wired control interface enables seamless connectivity between the KX3's internal processor and other RTI remotes. Hardwired with Power-over-Ethernet, the KX3 allows electrical power to be transmitted over data cables, resulting in less downtime, easier maintenance, and a simpler installation process. The unit also features six sense ports with sense-event capabilities to detect voltage or closure; four relays for control via contact closure; an integrated camera and microphone; proximity and ambient light sensors; and more.
RTI will also introduce the company's new AD-16x 16x16 audio matrix switcher, bringing control via both IR/RS-232 and IP with two-way feedback to audio distribution applications. The device features audio pre-outs only, control protocol including group zone command, and a new Web interface for zone setup testing and zone grouping configuration.
"We are very excited to continue RTI's tradition of introducing a wide-range of forward-thinking innovations at CEDIA," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "We look forward to giving our customers a firsthand look at our solutions that bring more ergonomic comfort and more flexible connectivity options to any control environment."
RTI will be exhibiting in booth 3606 at CEDIA EXPO 2013 from Sept. 26 - 28. More information is available at www.rticorp.com.
