Crestron MLX-2 Remote Now Available

The first Crestron infiNET EX™ 2-Way RF Remote with LCD Display

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, January 27, 2009 – Crestron announces the release of its new, greatly anticipated MLX-2 handheld remote. The MLX-2 is a state-of-the-art handheld controller featuring Crestron infiNET EX™ two-way wireless RF with long-range communications. Advanced mesh network technology give the MLX-2 exceptional reliability, true feedback, and dynamic frequency allocation. Its compact size and ergonomic design facilitates one-handed operation; 57 programmable buttons enable intuitive, tactile control over everything from whole house automation to corporate boardrooms.

A large, easy-to-read LCD screen displays dynamic text, supporting scrolling menus of channels, media titles and numerous other commands. The screen can also show the time, lighting levels, room temperature, and other real-time data. The pushbuttons and LCD both have electroluminescent backlighting to provide optimal visibility in a range of lighting environments.

Static or dynamic text scrolls vertically for lists; horizontally for items such as metadata from AV sources. Environmental presets and conditions can be viewed and controlled, and audio and lighting levels appear in percentage or bar graph form. Windows® SideShow™ is supported, providing access to all kinds of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, and weather alerts.

The required CEN-RFGW-EX infiNET EX™ gateway stores and processes all the programming, data, button presses and display changes for up to 16 MLX-2 remotes. As a result, each unit draws very little power. The gateway continuously synchronizes with the control system to seamlessly communicate with any MLX-2 on the network. Using repeaters, the MLX-2 operates up to 400 feet, perfect for roaming applications.
