Slide 5 of 7


RTI XP-8v

The RTI XP-8v features USB and Ethernet programming capabilities, 433MHz and 2.4GHz Zigbee RF module support, and an SD/MM slot for memory expansion. We believe RTI's new XP-8v caught CE Pro's readers' eyes because integrators are able to use the XP-8v to provide a high level of control in whole-house audio, theater, and even smaller home installs. The product also tows the line between less complex controllers and more robust systems from other manufacturers that entail a larger financial investment. Features to know: HDMI output for OSD provides bidirectional control interface on a TV. Eight two-way RS-232 ports. 512MB of non-volatile Flash memory.
