ELAN Home Systems has announced the addition of a new 10” hard-wired tabletop and under-cabinet mounted colour LCD touchscreen to its ELAN g! system interface range.

In addition to the new VL10 Valet, the ELAN family of interfaces includes the HR2 handheld remote control, the TS Series 10”, 7” and 4” Touch Screens, and the g! mobile applications for the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. The ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System also provides interfaces for PCs and on-screen displays, allowing for entertainment and home control from a television.
Joe Lautner, ELAN product manager and new business development, commented: “The new VL10 Valet provides our custom installation dealers, consumers and commercial customers with a convenient, always-on user interface that is perfect for use in homes, boardrooms and bars. It features ELAN’s user-friendly ‘touch and swipe’ design and is an ideal control solution for kitchens and bedside tables, where it can double as a TV thanks to the included analogue video input.”
The ELAN VL10 Valet will be showcased during next month’s ISE exhibition at the Amsterdam RAI.
