Philips releases Pronto NX PowerLite remote control
Philips is planning to take controlling home electronics to a new level when it releases the latest version of the Pronto universal remote, the NX PowerLite (TSU9600).

The new Pronto has evolved following extensive input from installers, and builds on the original Philips Pronto, which itself was a leap forward in programmable touchscreen remote controls.

With a VGA LCD interface screen that looks like a web page, the PowerLite displays channel icons, images and text in superfine detail.

The new model also incorporates a music server (Escient Fireball) and lighting control programme (Lutron RadioRa) with full onscreen feedback.

As with previous models, the Pronto NX PowerLite is organised by activities rather than pieces of equipment, and controls everything from the one console – from AV home entertainment equipment to on-line music and lighting systems.

The NX PowerLite can be programmed to operate all IR-controlled AV equipment and provides wireless control throughout an entire home in combination with the ultra-reliable WiFi extender.

Also available is the advanced Serial Extender which offers even greater functionality through four individually addressable IR ports and four RS232 ports for ultra-reliable hard wired control, inside a 19-inch rack mountable enclosure.

The Pronto works with every brand and model currently on the market and can ‘learn’ codes not included in its library, updating as new functions become available.

The device itself will be available for a suggeted street prce of NZ$2499.00, with additional extenders available.
