BDX TT Bluetooth interface - many people now store and manage their music and media through a smartphone or other handheld device. Getting that music into an installed audio/video system can be a challenge, especially if the user does not want to bother with docking stations or cables. The BDX TT Bluetooth audio receiver provides that full -fidelity, reliable wireless connection between an A/V system and any handheld Bluetooth A2DP -enabled device such as a smartphone, PC or tablet. It lets the user maintain device functionality while listening to music - they can pause to take a call, for example.
SmartPanel® LCD touchpanels - Xantech's SmartPanel LCD touchpanels offer complete Room/Zone Control via interface to the MX88 system, or stand -alone via RS422/232, IR, GPIO trigger and now IP. With SmartPanel touchpanels, users can control A/V and automation components from one single interface portal. When used in stand -alone applications, all of the control processing is right in the panel itself, creating a very efficient room control panel with simplified installation and programming. The new units range in screen size from 3.5 inches to 7 inches. All boast super -bright, high -resolution, durable, professional -grade TFT LCD displays.
