Now Shipping: Control4 HC-800 Controller and 7-inch Portable Touch Screen with Camera
The HC-800 and Portable are ready for installation in residential and light commercial projects.
Salt Lake City, UT - January 30, 2012 - Control4, a leading innovator in residential and light commercial automation systems, has announced that the Control4® HC-800 controller and Control4® 7" Portable Touch Screen with Camera are now shipping. The highly anticipated HC-800 and Portable have received rave reviews from dealers who participated in the beta programs. Both products deliver performance and flexibility at an exceptional value for homeowners and businesses.
The flagship HC-800 is a powerful, flexible, multi-zone controller designed to serve as the cornerstone of any Control4 installation. The HC-800's lightning-fast, next-generation 1.8GHz high-performance dual-core processor delivers instantaneous, interactive on-screen control and browsing of even the largest media libraries. While the rack-mountable HC-800 measures in at an ultra-slim 1RU, it doesn't skimp on connectivity with two RS-232 ports, six IR ports, and four contact and relay switches. It also features enough analog and digital outputs to deliver four independent zones of audio without the help of a secondary media player. Certified HDMI audio and video connectivity enables simple integration with the latest displays, A/V receivers, and surround processors, while component video connectivity guarantees compatibility with legacy systems.
The sleek Control4 7" Portable Touch Screen with Camera is dealer-configurable as a portable or tabletop solution for use on a countertop, desk, end-table or nightstand. It supports Wireless-N and Ethernet connectivity, and is powered either by Power over Ethernet (PoE) or AC power options. The Portable enables seamless video-intercom interoperability with other Control4 video intercom-capable products, and audio intercom compatibility with the current 5" and 7" In-Wall Touch Screens.
The Control4 HC-800 Controller and the 7" Portable Touch Screen with Camera both have a US MSRP of $999. For more information go to www.control4.com.
