App and remote have media system control in hand12 February 2015
An innovative product line that allows end users with Apple mobile devices to interact and control professionally installed entertainment systems is being showcased by Pro Control.
The ProPanel app lets users with an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad have complete control over any Pro Control system containing a ProLink control processor.
The ProPanel app sports a completely customisable graphical user interface, giving end users a consistent user experience across all Pro Control remote controllers in their system. Easy to program and use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by rotating the Apple device, with no additional programming required.
ProPanel supports local connection via WiFi and offers remote-access capabilities via auto-switching WiFi and wireless mobile data, providing users with convenient control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world.
Pro Control said its app also enhanced the control experience with unique capabilities such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather icons, dynamic image lists and high-resolution graphics.
The iPro.8 Companion Controller remote works as an extension of the ProPanel app, designed for end users who enjoy using their Apple smartphone or tablet as the primary controller for their electronic systems.
The low-cost controller adds the convenience of a dedicated remote with instant connectivity and hard buttons for tactile control. It gives users the hard buttons and tactile control to which they are accustomed and provides immediate access to common functions such as changing channels, controlling the volume, and DVR transport.
The remote overcomes network connectivity issues by using proven and reliable RF technology for instantaneous communication, and is designed for use with any Pro Control ProLink processor with an activated ProPanel app.
