Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is now shipping the CX7, a wired user interface for “always on” control panel. Designed for hard-wired installations on a countertop or under a cabinet, the CX7 is an adjustable tilt 7-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen LCD with analog audio and video inputs, stereo speakers, wired and wireless Ethernet, proximity and ambient light sensors.
The CX7 allows users to view and listen to sources such as satellite TV on its 7-inch, 800×480 WVGA LCD and integrated stereo speakers. It also features wired 10/100 Base-T and wireless Ethernet, which provide two-way control and feedback, access to Web pages, video from network security cameras and programming. In addition, a built-in camera and microphone will offer intercom capabilities in the future. Proximity and light sensors automatically bring the unit to life when it’s approached by an end user as well.
The CX7’s display can be lifted straight up, laid nearly flat, tilted at any level in-between, or the unit can even be inverted and mounted under a cabinet. The CX7 features multiple power source options, such as the included power supply and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Built-in high-output IR provides direct control of devices without the need for a separate control processor.
