Brea, CA – May 2010… Altinex, the leading manufacturer of Modular AV Solutions™, is pleased to announce the new CP481-008 and CP482-008 MultiTouch Panels. The latest additions to the company’s expanding line of touch screen controllers, the CP481-008 and CP482-008 both feature 8.4-inch LCD displays with an LCD resolution of 800 x 600 and a scaled resolution of 1024 x 768. Pre-programmed for use with Polycom (CP481-008) and Tandberg (CP482-008) video conference systems, these new MultiTouch panels feature an attractive, contemporary design that blends seamlessly with the most sophisticated boardroom and presentation space aesthetics.
The new Altinex CP481-008 MultiTouch Panel is pre-programmed for use with Polycom VSX Series video conference equipment and controls the system via its RS-232 port. Supported systems include the Polycom VSX 3000, 5000, 6000, 7000e, 7000s, and 8000. Extremely accurate and responsive, the CP481-008 features resistive panel technology that senses ‘touch’ from a finger, stylus, pen, pencil, gloved finger, or other tool.
The Altinex CP482-008 is pre-programmed for use with most Tandberg video conference systems, including the Tandberg 500, 550, 800, 880, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, 6000, 7000, and 8000. Like its sibling, the CP482-008 controls the equipment via its RS-232 port and has the same accurate and responsive ‘touch’ capability by finger, stylus, pen, pencil, gloved finger, or other tool.
Both the CP481-008 and CP482-008 provide two COM ports that can control virtually any serial device using standard RS-232 communication. The panels’ two LAN ports allow connectivity to a local area network or a direct connection to another TCP/IP device. These panels also support wireless LAN in addition to the wired RJ-45 connection. Bluetooth is also implemented. The panels can be mounted to a stand for table use; or they can be wall or rack mounted. The standard VESA mount on the panel’s back supports a variety of third-party mounting mechanisms as well a myriad of potential mounting options.
Designed with expandability in mind, both the CP481-008 and CP482-008 are field upgradable. This includes changes to the video conference equipment, user interface changes, or the addition of equipment to control (projectors, LCD panels, DVD players, motorized screens, lighting, etc.), including ancillary equipment such as HVAC or motorized blinds.
Phil Hale, Altinex Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the company’s new CP481-008 and CP482-008 MultiTouch Panels, “The CP481-008 and CP482-008 make the process of controlling both Polycom and Tandberg video conferencing equipment easier than ever. Fully pre-programmed for the most commonly used equipment, these new panels are a plug and play solution that enables integrators to get their client’s systems up and running in a minimal amount of time—without the frustration of having to program the control aspects of the system. Both models ship with a 12-foot pre-terminated RS-232 cable for installer convenience, making these panels a fast and efficient solution for getting a new system up and running as quickly as possible.”
The Altinex CP481-008 and CP482-008 MultiTouch Panels are available now and carry a MSRP of $2,700 each.
