Does anyone know anything about the new RTI remote that is suppose to be coming out next year? My dealer says he would give me a great deal on his floor model since the new one is coming out. I would like some idea before investing in the current model and then find that the newer model is even better. I would appreciate any advice you could give me. Thank you very much for your help.

Never heard anything about a new remote. What model is the dealer demo model?

Get a fresh battery if you get the demo unit.

ST-7 wont be available for probably another year

If you buy the dealer demo model make sure you get a new battery like the others said
The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

I sooo can't wait to grab one of those.. i saw that on youtube, it has loads cool stuff, kinda looks like the new amx remotes. it will have an intercom aswell right? the password dock locking option is definately a seller to most of my clients

RTInstaller: you seem to be very knowledgable about RTI products, you had any scoop on when it could probably be out? I have a potential large job mid2010 which could require some intercom facilities in each room, on the other hand i don't want to be one of the "beta tester" of the product so i might need to wait a few months after its release :)

RTI projects Q1 of 2010. I project Q1 of 2011. I will also bet the intercomm feature won't be available when the panel is released. Probably 6 months after that. This is just my guess.

How many times has it been said on here, don't spec product until you can put it in your hands? If they told me it would be shipping out in a couple of weeks, I still wouldn't spec it, (see XP-8). That's why they don't give exact dates anymore, not many manufactureers do anymore, too many variables with equipment today.

Those are pretty optomistic guesses. :) I'm gonna wait 2 weeks before I throw out my guesses.

Yes ST-7 is slated for Q1 which translates to June (May if we are lucky) by RTI's calendar, I really wish I could get one of those calendars, it would make this process so much simpler

Im sure many of you must have already read this but here is a press release on some new items due out over the next 24 months (press release at Cedia September 2009 Expo in Atlanta)...

ST-7 Universal Controller — RTI's ST-7 two-way enabled controller features a bright and beautiful 7" widescreen LCD display with an integrated multitouch capacitive touchscreen. For simplified navigation and Wi-Fi web browsing, the ST-7 integrates a trackball and customizable backlight coloring to indicate different functions, while 13 configurable hard buttons provide intuitive control. An integrated microphone and stereo speakers are designed to support intercom over IP. Utilizing ZigBee® RF technology, the ST-7 is capable of two-way communication with a wide variety of electronic devices including thermostats, lighting control, security, audio/video distribution systems, and media servers. This sleek tablet combines powerful controls and great looks with the flexibility of multiple docking options for wireless, in-wall, or tabletop configurations. The premium docks also feature an electronic locking mechanism, with password protection, for added security against unauthorized use or removal.

RK-10 In-Wall Controller — The RK-10 offers the size, power, and flexibility required in sophisticated installations and perfectly fits in any environment whether the boardroom, MDU, or kitchen. Featuring an impressive 10.2-inch TFT widescreen LCD touchscreen, the RK-10 operates as a flat-panel PC running Windows® Embedded Standard OS, with a powerful Intel® Atom processor, to allow for multi-tasking in control, Web browsing, document viewing, and more. However, the RK-10 goes further with a fully programmable and intuitive user interface courtesy of RTI's Integration Designer® software. For complete control, a built-in wired and wireless (802.11 b/g) Ethernet connection allows access to video from network security cameras, music or video playback, control from hard drive servers, and much more.

AD-4 Four-Zone Distributed Audio Matrix Switcher — Acting as an extension to RTI's control systems, the AD-4 offers a low-cost and very effective solution for distributing music in a residential or commercial installation. Containing both matrix switching pre-amp and a built-in power amplifier, the AD-4 offers the flexibility to augment four local source inputs with four remote source inputs, such as a bedroom CD player, iPod® docking station, or an office PC. For a simple, clean installation, a single Cat-5 cable connects the remote source's audio and infrared signals to the AD-4. To meet the needs of larger projects, the matrix switcher can be expanded to eight zones by cascading two units together.

vIRsa Mouse IR Emitter — This is the ultimate IR emitter, built with the professional integrator in mind, providing simplified, smooth installations and high reliability. The low-profile vIRsa is unobtrusive, and adjusts to any installation environment with a flexible film adhesive which conforms to curved surfaces. For fast troubleshooting, a separate holder remains attached, allowing easy removal and replacement of the emitter. A blue LED flasher offers increased visibility, but may be hidden during normal operation. In addition, a translucent PCB improves the integrity of electrical connections, while a built-in resistor protects against over driving.

RTI's Virtual Panel — Any PC with Internet access can now be used as a virtual RTI control panel with this new Web portal application. Users simply connect to the RTI interface online and easily gain convenient access to their RTI system and connected devices, empowering them to monitor and control their systems remotely. With RTI's virtual panel, functions such as adjusting thermostats or monitoring security systems can now be done from anywhere in the world.

More Two-Way Drivers and New Service Offerings — Designed with an open architecture, RTI's remote controls and in-wall touchscreens interface seamlessly with yet an even wider variety of integration products. Via RTI's Integration Partners Program, several new two-way drivers will be demonstrated and discussed at CEDIA EXPO 2009.

Furthermore, RTI will announce a new dealer custom-button engraving service offering on several of the company's control solutions, including the RK1-2, RK1-4, RK1-8, RK2, RK-3V, and T1-B.

This looks to be the mother of all in-walls - cant wait to see what it looks like...
but can wait to see how much its gonna cost if the K4 is anything to go by...

This has been on the cards for ages and I thought it to be dead in the water but
it would be cool to have an audio matrix that just works straight out the box..

vIRsa Mouse IR Emitter — This is the ultimate IR emitter, built with the professional integrator in mind, providing simplified, smooth installations and high reliability. The low-profile vIRsa is unobtrusive, and adjusts to any installation environment with a flexible film adhesive which conforms to curved surfaces.

Good to have better IR emitters - lets hope they stick better than the current
shipped ones...

RTI's Virtual Panel — Any PC with Internet access can now be used as a virtual RTI control panel with this new Web portal application. Users simply connect to the RTI interface online and easily gain convenient access to their RTI system and connected devices, empowering them to monitor and control their systems remotely. With RTI's virtual panel, functions such as adjusting thermostats or monitoring security systems can now be done from anywhere in the world.

This will be handy and will allow for Iphone apps to be developed...

More Two-Way Drivers and New Service Offerings — Designed with an open architecture, RTI's remote controls and in-wall touchscreens interface seamlessly with yet an even wider variety of integration products. Via RTI's Integration Partners Program, several new two-way drivers will be demonstrated and discussed at CEDIA EXPO 2009.

Hopefully a Request F series and IQ series driver =) (pretty please RTI)

Furthermore, RTI will announce a new dealer custom-button engraving service offering on several of the company's control solutions, including the RK1-2, RK1-4, RK1-8, RK2, RK-3V, and T1-B.

This will be great - although Im sure there will be one hell of a lead time, having
custom buttons will alleviate a lot of problems we are facing with trying to sell the non screen remotes..

Bring it on =)
