Colorado vNet, a leading developer of whole-house control solutions, is now shipping its TS1-4/50 Vibe Touchscreen, a compact yet powerful in-wall controller featuring a 4.7-inch widescreen color display, a built-in digital amplifier, and a broad, designer-pleasing palette of bezel colors and options.
Colorado vNet’s TS1-4/50 Vibe Touchscreen
The new, smaller Vibe Touchscreen has been designed to allow versatile whole home system control and monitoring to be installed unobtrusively in virtually any size room, hallway or vestibule, and provides the end user with a rich user interface that from a cosmetic standpoint can blend seamlessly with virtually any home decor scheme.
“The new TS1-4/50 gives our dealers great new specification options,” commented Charlie Porritt, CEO of Russound, parent company of Colorado vNet. “It’s the perfect size for settings where a larger panel would be impractical or impossible, and thanks to a huge selection of bezel options, it can also provide the perfect look in almost any room, in any home.”
The new Colorado vNet TS1-4/50 features a 4.7-inch active matrix widescreen LCD display, along with 50 watts (2 x 25) of on-board digital audio amplification.
A line input allows connection to a local audio source such as an iPod, while a line output that is configurable for fixed or variable output allows easy integration to the rest of a home control system.
The flush-mount TS1-4/50 allows users to control audio, lighting, climate, security systems, and video cameras, with graphical user interface that displays full entertainment metadata, including cover art.
A selection of 20 optional bezel color and surface options (sold separately) allows integrators flexibility in blending the TS1-4/50 into any home decor scheme, according to the company. Options include woods, marble, granite, textile, and stainless steel textures, available over black or white faceplates.
Rough-in boxes for the new panel will also be shipping at the same time as the new TS1-4/50.
In related news, Colorado vNet recently announced a new version of its vNet Builder 4.6.75 programming software, which is now available on the Colorado vNet website. This latest version includes support for the new TS1-4/50 touchscreen, as well as the new TS1-7/70 in-wall LCD touchscreen (available July 2010). Both provide end-user selectable support in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
