CRESTRON INTRODUCES VERSATILE MLX-2 REMOTE

Las Vegas, NV, June 18, 2008 – The new Crestron MLX-2 is a state-of-the-art handheld remote featuring ZigBee® 2-way RF wireless communications. Its compact size and ergonomic design facilitate one-handed operation, while 57 programmable buttons and a large, easy-to-read LCD screen supports numerous custom menu functions. Intuitive, tactile control enables scrolling menus of channels, media titles, and numerous other commands. The Crestron MLX-2 also supports Windows Sideshow™ providing access to a wide-range of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, stock tickers, weather alerts, media guides, email messages, and appointment notifications.

The LCD screen on the MLX-2 can also display time and date, lighting levels, room temperature, and other real-time information drawn from the central control system. Bi-directional communication with the control system and other devices allows menu items to be updated dynamically, providing true feedback from AV sources for artist names and song titles; TV channels, for programming information; and even lighting and climate control presets.

Blue button backlighting facilitates control in a darkened room; white backlighting on the LCD provides optimal visibility in a range of lighting environments.

While drawing very little power, the menu commands remain active and ready on the screen at all times. When battery levels are low, a “low battery” message is displayed, and non-volatile memory ensures that programming is retained when batteries are low.
