The plan behind the RXT interface

Just ten years ago, the first customizable eight-button controller was introduced to the market with interactive technology. Flash-forward to today, controllers are becoming more accessible in corporate and educational settings, and more.

“Either you see one of two extremes. You’ll see either your standard button panel or a seven-inch touchscreen on the wall from one of the many companies out there,” said matt materniakR&D Engineer & Systems Programmer for Aurora Multimedia.

The catch is that the market is thin on offers. Consumers demanding a full-control processor would face the inconvenience of installing multiple accessories to access a desired function or relying on a seven- to ten-inch touchscreen that sits uncomfortably on a wall.

That’s why Aurora’s vision is to expand the pool of offerings with the RXT-4, a revolutionary 4-inch all-in-one touchscreen control system with enhanced user experiences comparable to the “same way you control your smart home on your phone”. Materniak said.

Touching base with the coolest features of the RXT-4, the RXT-4 incorporates a built-in microphone, sensors and light ring for shared office workspaces to fully exploit a conference room scheduling system . Access is as easy as scanning a phone.

“So you don’t have to be a JavaScript web programmer to be able to create a simple interface, to be able to turn a projector on and off. You can just drag your actions… and not have to write a giant block of JavaScript,” Materniak said.

The RXT is built entirely on the Web Standard, a highly customizable platform. Additionally, the RXT-4 is a one-cable solution that simply requires plugging into a power source via Ethernet.

From simple room control solutions to complete solutions, the RXT-4 offers exactly that in a very small package at a very cost effective price.
