"Today's consumers have high expectations when it comes to control of their AV environments. They are looking for intuitive, professional-grade solutions that can be tailored to their specific needs," Pro Control general manager Mike Everett said. "We are excited to unveil a new line of control solutions that meet these tough demands by providing powerful control over even the most complex systems -- all at a great value.

According to Everett, Pro Control allows installers to create custom designs for their projects quickly and easily while affording consumers a powerful solution for complete control of any size system.

“Consumers can select an IR-based solution for simple, yet intuitive, control of their media system,” Everett said. “For the ultimate in convenience, they may select a more advanced method of control with a Pro Control central processor and compatible remote control. All Pro Control products combine durability and reliability with a stunningly sophisticated, ergonomic design that will perfectly complement the sleek look of today's electronics.”

The initial Pro Control lineup will include the PRO-24.z remote, which features a color OLED touch screen display capable of controlling components via 433-MHz RF or receiving feedback from devices such as AV receivers, lighting systems, iPods, and HVAC thermostats utilizing ZigBee technology. Pro Control will also offer the cost-effective PRO-24.i remote featuring a color touchscreen for one-way IR control of any room at what the company calls “an attractive price point.”

Complementing Pro Control's new handheld remotes are professional-grade central processors that allow RF control of electronic components through walls or cabinets. Among the two options, the PROLINK.4 will operate via 433-MHz RF communication to operate electronic systems while the PROLINK.z control processor enables two-way ZigBee communication and feedback with AV receivers, iPods, lights, and HVAC systems.
