ELAN Introduces New 12-Inch Touch Panel at CEDIA 2016

DALLAS, TEXAS, September 16, 2016 – Expanding its user interface options, ELAN from Core Brands today introduced the gXP12, a new 12-inch touch panel that is compatible with all ELAN systems. The introduction was made at CEDIA 2016 in Core Brands booth #4100 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

“The gXP12 gives dealers a great option for customers who need a larger touch panel. Plus, the ELAN user interface looks beautiful on the 12-inch screen,” Eric Herdman, Product Manager, ELAN, said today. “With the Video Overlay Feature available in the upcoming ELAN 8.0 software update, the gXP12 allows installers the opportunity to not only sell a control touch panel, but a video monitor as well. As such, the gXP12 is a great solution where space is limited and video from sources like Satellite, Cable TV, or Blu-Ray, is desired from a single device.”

The high performance gXP12 has an 11.6” diagonal 16:9 screen offering vivid 1920 x 1080 resolution. With a 5MP camera, the gXP12 is perfect for ELAN Intercom. The touch panel provides high-fidelity audio for clearly hearing conversations and notification chimes. The gXP12 also includes a digital MEMS microphone with echo and noise cancellation.

Built on a scalable, multi-core platform, the gXP12 features a Freescale iMX6 dual- and quad-core processor with a NEON SIMD co-processor and 1.0GHz ARM Cortex-A9. For installers, the touch panel utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) and a 24VDC power jack. The gXP12 fits conveniently into a two gang U.S. electrical box. Additionally, the gXP12 is CE, RoHS/WEEE and PoE 802.3af compliant.
