Control4 release new 7″ Portable Touch Screen

New Control4 7" Touch Screen.

Control4 have just announced the release of a brand new 7″ Portable Touch Screen. We haven’t got our hands on one as yet but from looking into it, it looks like it is based on the same technology as the fantastic Infinity Edge 7″ touch screens.


This new portable touch screen boasts a capacitive full-colour LCD panel, full 2-way control of the Control4 system, a sleek tablet form-factor, better WiFi range than it’s predecessor, long lasting rechargable battery, downloadable apps with it’s OS2.x software, and a full featured 2-way intercom between other new 7″ portable touch screens and the Infinity edge touch screens.


Just like it’s predecessor the new portable touch screen comes with a docking station for charging and when used on the docking station becomes a ‘table top’ touch screen which can be powered from either a power outlet or PoE (Power over Ethernet). When docked it can take advantage of an ethernet connection (if there is one provided).


We have been waiting a long time for this and can’t wait to get our hands on one!
