Crestron Takes On The iPad With New Touch Track Pad
The UFO-4X has a virtual keyboard for entering URLs, passwords, and content selection, it can also be transformed into a mouse, so users can navigate their way around both content and a home’s remote control services. Shaped like a flying saucer the device sits on a small stand for charging.
The device which sits on a wireless network can also be used to access Web pages, using the same taps and double-taps as a standard desktop track pad.
Users can also access PC on the network, as long as they’re running Crestron’s CEN-WIN touch panel HID Emulator software.
Multi touch functionality lets users flip through music libraries, scroll through TV channels and radio stations and select control apps.
The RF unit operates over a 100 metre radius. It can be used in both landscape and portrait mode, adjusting automatically due to a built-in tilt sensor. Flash is supported for dynamic graphics.
