Award-Winning New RTS® Keypanel is Star of Show at IBC 2007

Amsterdam, The Netherlands. September 14, 2007. The all-new KP-32CLD Color Display Keypanel by RTS® Digital Matrix Intercom was the surprise hit of IBC 2007. RTS® kept this revolutionary device such a closely-guarded secret that even competitors were surprised.

One organization that found the keypanel particularly intriguing was TV Technology Magazine, who presented RTS® with its prestigious Star Award for Superior Technology.

“We are very proud to be a recipient of the 2007 Star Award for Superior Technology by TV Technology Magazine,” said Christian Latzelsberger, Product Manager for RTS® Intercoms Worldwide; “this seal of approval is a great start to what is sure to be an exciting time in intercom technology.“

It is an exciting time indeed because the KP-32CLD is the flagship of an entirely new generation of RTS® keypanels.

“The KP-32CLD is just the beginning,” adds Latzelsberger. “In the near future we will usher in a new generation of intercom communication with an entire series of CLD keypanels. This will change everything.”

Inspired directly by user feedback, the KP-32CLD sports advanced features that take flexibility and ease-of-use to the next level. The KP-32CLD features a revolutionary, customizable graphic user-interface that spans two integrated 4.9”, full-color LCD displays. The KP-32CLD‘s advanced functionality is wrapped in a sleek, ergonomic design with a flat front panel that fits flush within a rack-mount configuration.

Perhaps most striking about the KP-32CLD is its dual, full-color LCD screens, which display an all-new advanced graphic interface. The KP-32CLD is the first intercom keypanel in the world to have a color interface, which benefits the customer by color-coding information.

“We overhauled not only the technology, but the design of the keypanel as well,“ says Latzelsberger. “We wanted a look that kept pace with today‘s consumer electronics, while maintaining the high level of functionality that professionals demand.”

Other design enhancements include a blue illuminated keypad, exposed speaker grill, shallow depth, and an overall refined aesthetic.

“The KP-32CLD is a departure from the industrial, utilitarian design that is usually associated with intercom equipment.”

The LCD displays are not only attractive, but highly functional as well. The GUI they host is designed to be as intuitive as possible, even when performing advanced operations.

“The interface is so simple; anyone could sit down and start using it with minimal training,” Latzelsberger continued. “Many functions that used to require cycling through menus are now just right there in front of you, accessible with a single touch.“

Future-proof is a bold claim in the technology industry, but the KP-32CLD is designed to adapt to changing standards which will allow it to stay relevant in a rapidly evolving industry for years to come. The back panel is modular by design for easy installation of expansion panels. In addition, the front panel features a USB port, which simplifies interfacing and provides another opportunity for future expansion. All these points for expansion are meant to maximize customers‘ return on investment.

“A consistent theme in RTS® product design is adaptability,” says Latzelsberger. “If you buy a RTS® keypanel, for example, and later want to upgrade to a new connectivity standard like VoIP, you simply install an option kit in your existing keypanel and you‘re up and running. That‘s adaptability, and the KP-32CLD is no exception.“

Features of the new KP-32CLD include:
Full-Color LCD Displays
The new color displays host a rich and intuitive graphic user interface that allows to indicate different keypanel functions in different colors.
Modern, Modular Design
