The one of a kind and highly anticipated Olé Film Interactive Touchpad will be on view during CEDIA Expo '06 at ELAN's booth #159 from September 14 - 17, 2006.

Through this giveaway we are pleased to further reward and motivate our ever -growing family of ELAN Dealers."

Added Cat Fowler, ELAN's Vice President Marketing and Technical Services, "We have scheduled many cool things to take place in at our booth this year in an effort to further inspire and excite our Dealers! In addition to the 20 Olé product drawings, we will host live Olé demonstrations and feature a full home theater with Sunfire. To cap it all off we will present entertainment with an authentic Spanish flair with performances by the world -renowned flamenco guitarist René Heredia and his flamenco dancer troupe."

As the first ever Film Interactive Touchpad (FIT), OleĢ marries the best of all interface worlds by bringing together the speed, graphics and response of an LCD touch panel with the simplicity and pricing of a keypad, thus creating a completely new interface product category within the Custom Installation industry. A radical departure from traditional, hard button keypads, Olé offers the largest all -touch surface in a double -gang, in -wall product and new level of flexibility to match every Client's décor. It's easier -than -ever installation and super -fast VIA!®TOOLS programming saves Dealers valuable time, thus increasing profits substantially.
