Savant isn’t the only control company with a new remote out this week. Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) has just announced the release of its T2x, the fifth generation of the popular T2 wireless remote control. The first thing you’ll notice about the T2x, if you’re familiar with past T2 interfaces, is that it’s slimmer, sexier, more inviting to the hand. The T2x also includes a number of features that require a little digging.
In addition to its edge-to-edge flush-mounted 2.8-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display, which features improved gesture control for activities like swiping through your music playlists, the T2x comes equipped with 47 programmable hard buttons for all of your channel surfing and eyes-off pausing, skipping, and fast-forwarding needs. It also features built-in grip sensors that wake up the remote when you grab it, along with an integrated accelerometer for movement control.
The T2x also benefits from three integrated wireless technologies: 802.11b/g Wi-Fi (no N?), along with RTI’s dual-RF platform, which includes one-way 433MHz RF and ZigBee for two-way control and feedback from RTI processors and supported third-party devices. It also supports standalone IR control, if you’re really into pointing your remote at your gear.
From the press release:
“The T2x is packed with cutting-edge features to provide users with a satisfying control experience,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “With an edge-to-edge touchscreen, grip sensors, and an accelerometer, powerful control has never been so affordable or looked so sleek. In addition, support for WiFi, 433-MHz RF, and 2.4-GHz ZigBee allows installers to specify the controller into installations of any complexity without worrying about the communication method required.”
The new RTI T2x Wireless Controller is available now from authorized RTI dealers for $899 MSRP.
