Philips Unveils Pronto TSU9800 Touchscreen
Touchscreen features 6.4-inch VGA display and support for Pronto Link.
Philips has finally unveiled its Pronto TSU9800 touchscreen, an upgrade of the TSU9600.
The new TSU9800 has a lot of the same features as the TSU9600, but has a full-size 6.4-inch VGA display.
Other new features include: two extra buttons and an optical rotary wheel to control the touchpanel.
Philips added Pronto Link support to the TSU9800 at CEDIA Expo 2008. Pronto Link allows a homeowner to use one remote to control home theaters, adjust lights, temperatures, security and multiroom audio systems.
The TSU9800 can receive feedback from RS-232 or IP-controlled devices in real-time, providing advanced two-way functionality.
The TSU9800, with an optional accessory, can now be mounted onto any wall or table top. There’s also an Ethernet connection on the back of the docking station.
Two extenders are available for integration with home control, multiroom wireless and wired remote installs: the RFX9400 wireless extender and RFX9600 serial extender.
Philips did not release pricing or availability on the Pronto TSU9800.
