SmartPanel LCD touchpanels offer complete Room Control via RS422/232, IR, GPIO trigger and now IP for full control connectivity. With SmartPanel touchpanels, users can control A/V components, displays, teleconferencing and other components from one high -resolution, durable, professional -grade TFT display - all of the control processing is right in the panel itself, creating a very efficient room control panel with simplified installation and programming. The Xantech SmartPanel series is perfect for classrooms, conference rooms, digital signage, house -of -worship and hotel/hospitality applications. The four new units range in screen size from 3.5 inches to 10.1 inches.
The WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controller is a stand -alone room controller for networked/web -based control featuring two IR Ports, two Serial Ports, two Contact Closure ports and two Digital I/O ports as well as two Ethernet ports (one with POE) for TCP/IP Telnet control with less intrusion into facility IP networks. On its own, the Web Intelligent Controller is an Event -driven component capable of Timed Events, Calendar Events, Telnet and Serial Events and features a full FTP site, Web server and email server. With its built -in Web server, the WIC1200 is totally iPad ready without the need for purchasing, installing or setting -up an "app."
When interfaced with Xantech's CWTC10 10.4" WiFi touchpanel or XTR39 Wireless RF Remote (or Apple's new iPad), the WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controller can send messages back to the touchpanel allowing for text display, numeric display, volume and indicator bars, ON/OFF indicators and more, for full real -time data display.
Xantech's MX88 IP -enabled multi -zone audio/video controller is engineered for iPad control along with Xantech keypad and Xantech SmartPanel LCD touch -screen control. This Xantech web -enabled product allows an iPad to control an entire Xantech multi -room audio/video system. An integrated audio/video distribution and control tour -de -force, the network -ready MX88 combines a 50W x 16 -channel/8 -zone amplifier and highly efficient auto -sensing universal power supply with advanced automation control capable of up to 16 -Serial ports with the use of Xantech's RS232 1x8 serial routers, and 17 selectable IR ports, as well as IP communication and two -way interface with an iPhone®, iPod® touch or iPad.
