A Handheld for the Networked Home

You finally got your home networked. You can share files between computers, and you can print from any computer in your home. But get ready to take the next step: bring your integrated home together with a handheld control panel that gives you remote wireless access to take control of all your networked computers. AMX introduced the 8.4" Modero ViewPoint Touch Panel, an 802.11-based wireless handheld panel that lets you use a touch panel to do anything that you can accomplish on your PC.

The Modero ViewPoint Touch Panel has a user-friendly interface with icons that flip, spin, and morph. The screen has high brightness—800 x 600 pixels of resolution with 18-bit color depth and 8-bit transparency—and an antiglare overlay. This 2-pound machine, which operates on two battery packs for 4 hours of wireless operation, easily integrates into the home. You can mount the panel on optional accessories: a kickstand, a wall mount, or a table-top docking station.
