AV solutions distributor InvisionUK is now shipping RTI's new eight-zone AD-8 audio distribution system, along with the brand's advanced XP-3 central control processor and second generation T2-Cs+ universal remote controller.

The AD-8, which created a buzz at the recent CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis, comprises a matrix-switching pre-amp and 16-channel 'Cool Power' class D amplifier. Designed for larger residential and commercial installations, it delivers up to eight sources in any zone, four of which can be remotely connected via Cat-5. Its power output is rated at 25 watts per channel, with volume and tone control in all zones using IR or RS-232.

Eight zones can be expanded up to a maximum of 64, when multiple AD-8s are stacked together.

The XP-3 remote control processor can be configured to support one-way control via non-Ethernet enabled RTI in-wall products and two-way control with Ethernet enabled RTI in-wall controllers. It also has ZigBee wireless transmission support via an integrated 2.4GHz RF transceiver module. The XP-3 is intended to handle music servers, lighting and security in smaller scale CI projects.

RTI's second generation T2-C+ universal remote controller is a Zigbee RF zapper with a 2.4inch customisable display and hard buttons for frequently used functions. It can be used as a stand alone system controller or as part of a larger control system. Programming is based on Windows integration Designer software.  

RTI (Remote Technologies Incorporated) has been serving the custom install market since 1992. Headquartered in Minnesotta, it speciailises in handheld/in-wall system controllers and central processors.
