Crestron this week announced the availability of its new MLX-2 remote, a handheld controller that features Crestron infiNET EX two-way wireless RF with long-range communications. According to the company, advanced mesh network technology gives the MLX-2 exceptional reliability, true feedback, and dynamic frequency allocation.

Despite its compact, ergonomic design, the remote has a large LCD display that supports scrolling menus of channels, media titles, and several other commands. The screen can also show the time, lighting levels, room temperature, and other real-time data. Fifty-seven programmable push buttons, as well as the LCD, have electroluminescent backlighting to provide visibility in a range of lighting environments.

Static or dynamic text scrolls vertically for lists and horizontally for items such as metadata from AV sources. Environmental presets and conditions can be viewed and controlled, while audio and lighting levels appear in percentage or bar-graph form. The MLX-2 supports Windows SideShow, providing access to a variety of PC and Web-based content such as news feeds, sports scores, and weather alerts.

The new remote requires a CEN-RFGW-EX infiNET EX gateway, which stores and processes all of the programming, data, button presses, and display changes for up to 16 MLX-2 remotes. The gateway continuously synchronizes with the control system to communicate with any MLX-2 on the network. The controller operates up to 400 feet, with repeaters.
