RTI will present the latest commercial solutions in control, automation, and video distribution in Booth 4272 at InfoComm 2023 in Orlando, Florida. Integrators will see how the new KX4 in-wall Touchpanel with Control Processor simplifies single-room commercial installations, as well as the seamless integration enabled by video over IP coupled with RTI control and automation.
“Single-room commercial control – from boardrooms and huddle spaces to classrooms – is a fast-growing category for systems integrators,” says RTI Product Director Robert Lawton. “Combining the in-wall touchpanel and hard-button control with an integrated processor gives commercial integrators the opportunity to create faster installations with the fully customisable control their clients demand.”
At InfoComm, integrators will see the KX4 touchpanel and processor controlling a meeting room demo in the booth. The touchpanel boasts a 4in, high-resolution capacitive touch display with five configurable hard buttons that can be customised with RTI Laser Shark engraving. The built-in control processor delivers robust capabilities to maximise integration with connected devices, including support for two-way drivers and the RTiPanel mobile app. The KX4 can be used as either a stand-alone processor or as a secondary processor in larger configurations. Back-panel connections enable direct control of devices via IR, IP, two RS-232 six-voltage sense ports with sense-event capabilities, and four relays for control via contact closure.
In this BYOD world, meeting and presentation spaces need to be ready to enable attendees to plug in and present with minimal disruption. As an example of the company’s connected solution portfolio, RTI will show KX4 integrated with the Blustream AMF41W wireless presentation switcher. The pairing enables control and BYOD presentation sharing for meeting or class attendees, even with those participating remotely.
For sports bars and other food and beverage facilities, RTI will demonstrate its video over IP platform fully integrated into the RTI control system, enabling integrators to distribute 4K UHD video over a 1GB network switch and scale to almost any number of endpoints.
“RTI video over IP allows integrators to take advantage of existing network infrastructure to cost-effectively distribute video to displays across installations of any size,” says RTI Director of AV Product Management Neal Ellsworth. “This gives integrators the benefits of video over IP without the need for a deep understanding of networking or the need to manually assign IP addresses. As it’s into the RTI platform, all endpoints autodiscover and configure. This saves integrators time on every installation.”
Throughout the show, RTI will be doing live demonstrations of the Integration Designer programming platform. The multi-award-winning Integration Designer 11 enables 100% customisation of any interface and the system automation behind it. Time-saving features include the integrated System Manager – with adaptive auto-programming intelligence that adds feedback for scenes, locations, and automation while autogenerating new macros based on what’s already been programmed in the system – and the fully integrated Driver Library.
“We are excited to present these solutions to integrators and technology managers at InfoComm 2023,” says RTI Head of Global Marketing Bill Hensley. “And we are sharing booths 4172 and 4272 with Blustream. Of course, Blustream is control brand agnostic, but with many native integrations, together RTI and Blustream create a powerful control and AV distribution solution for commercial integrators in all verticals.”
