Altinex Releases Multitouch Panels

Altinex, a leading manufacturer of modular AV solutions, have added to their line of AV control systems and jumped upon the multi-touch band wagon with the release of their MultiTouch product line.

Each panel is designed with maximum AV control flexibility in mind and comes loaded with two RS-232 ports, two network ports, two to four USB ports, built in wireless and Bluetooth.

An embedded Windows XP sits at the heart of each panel and includes a comprehensive GUI development tool, programming samples and the AVSnap application development software. This should make it a breeze for anyone with programming experience to toss together their AV control system but is generally made available so that system integrators can give you precisely the control you need over your AV setup.

The two tone black and silver bezel doesn’t really do it for me, but your mileage may vary.
