Does any dealer have any information on these new remotes from RTI.
http://www.procontrol.com/pro24z.html

They were announced recently, i tried emailing them (as a dealer, which I am) and have gotten no response. I am going to try my RTI distributor next and then RTI but..... in the meanwhile?


These look really promising due to the combination of the 5-way joystick and d-pad for really getting the most out of menus between devices etc.

No news yet but they are listed as an exhibitor at the CEDIA 2010 trade show which takes place in Atlanta at the end of September. If there's going to be an announcement soon... that's the place they would make it.

with rti's track record, they usually deliver the products annouced a year later, so don't hold your breath. i would expect next spring realistically.

Watch the website too: www.procontrol.com


Please drop a note anytime to check on the timing.

ProLink.r and ProLink.z Central Control Processors

The powerful ProLink.r and ProLink.z processors are capable of taking full command of even the most complex electronic systems. They feature an abundance of control options, including routable IR ports with adjustable output strength, as well as two voltage-sensing inputs for improved management of connected devices. The ProLink.z processor with integrated 2.4-GHz Zigbee(R) antenna provides advanced control via six IR output ports, an Ethernet port for network control of a virtually unlimited number of devices, and two two-way RS-232 ports for bidirectional communication.

iPro.8 Companion Controller

Many consumers love using their tablet or smartphone as the primary controller for their electronics system. However, using such devices comes with a few limitations, including the lack of hard buttons for tactile control, connectivity issues, and the numerous screen swipes it takes to accomplish simple adjustments, such as turning down the volume on the TV. With these issues in mind, Pro Control has developed the affordable iPro.8 companion remote, which enables end users to add the convenience of a dedicated remote when combined with a tablet, smartphone, or PC.


A truly unique solution, the patent-pending iPro.8 remote works as an extension of the ProPanel App running on a smartphone, tablet, or PC. It gives users the hard buttons and tactile control to which they are accustomed, and it provides immediate access to common functions such as changing channels, controlling the volume, and adjusting the DVR. This stylish remote overcomes network-connectivity issues by using reliable RF technology for instantaneous communication, and it has been designed for use with any Pro Control processor with an activated ProPanel App.
