New Four-Channel, Real Time, Color Quad Processor Provides Simultaneous Multi-Camera Viewing Option for Elan Via! ? Touch Panels and Televisions
Lexington, KY February 14, 2005 -- ELAN? Home Systems today announced the company is now shipping its innovative new VIA!?QUAD, a Four-Channel, Real Time, Color Quad Processor designed for home security applications and general home monitoring. The announcement was made by Bob Farinelli, President and Chief Technical Officer of ELAN Home Systems.
VIA!QUAD allows ELAN color cameras to present up to four different views of the home on VIA! Touch Panels and TVs -- all at the same time. VIA!QUAD empowers users with the ability to readily and effortlessly view different locations, both inside and outside the home, from one or multiple rooms within the house. An exceptionally easy-to-implement monitoring product, VIA!QUAD lets users create custom names for camera views, such as "Nursery" or "Door," providing a comfortable and intuitive interface. Additionally, when using an ELAN VIA! Touch Panel, homeowners can touch any one of the four views to zoom in for a full screen view with greater detail.
VIA!QUAD was specifically designed with the needs of the specialty Dealer in mind. It is plug-and-play compatible with ELAN VIA!TOOLS programming software for VIA! Touch Panels and will save ELAN Dealers valuable programming time and money. VIA!QUAD and its feature sets can easily be incorporated seamlessly into virtually any custom ELAN home application by selecting VIA!QUAD in the VIA!TOOLS setup software and then integrating it into an ELAN home system.
Mr. Farinelli said, "The release of the VIA!QUAD further illustrates ELAN's on-going commitment to delivering distinctive, turn-key solutions. Our Dealers depend on ELAN to help them to differentiate and expand their product and service offerings by presenting them with groundbreaking new products that drive and enhance the whole-house audio, video and communications systems they provide to their Customers. At the same time, we look to our Dealers to provide us with vital input and feedback that we can incorporate into our product development process. VIA!QUAD is a result of this process and is a terrific addition to our continually growing line of products."
The VIA!QUAD color processor also illustrates VIA! Touch Panel's flexible and ever-expanding use as a complete whole-house control solution. Not only is VIA! the most affordable and user-friendly controller for one touch access to every electronic subsystem in the home, but it can also double as a sleek, compact "TV" for viewing video in places in the home where space is lacking. In addition, VIA! has proven to be one of the easiest touch panels for Specialty Dealers to program on the market today, with simple menus and motifs that can be easily downloaded as is or customized as needed, to please every one of their clients.
Additional specifications for the new VIA!QUAD include: four video inputs (NTSC and/or PAL) and one video output (which can be S-Video, Composite Video, and VGA simultaneously), a selectable picture-in-picture option that allows picture placement anywhere on the screen, auto switch functions that allow sequential viewing of video sources, plus date, time, and channel display.
VIA!QUAD is available at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $375.00, which includes a handheld remote control.
