The Pro24.r and Pro24.z touch-screen controllers feature a high-resolution 2.4-inch TFT LCD touch-screen, programmable five-way joystick (Pro24.z), and backlit hard buttons for intuitive operation even in a darkened room. The powerful ProLink.r and ProLink.z processors store macros for professional-grade control and feature an abundance of control options, including routable IR ports with adjustable output strength, two voltage-sensing inputs for improved management of connected devices, as well as Ethernet ports for network control of a virtually unlimited number of devices.

The ProLink.z processor features an integrated 2.4-GHz ZigBee antenna for bidirectional communication via the Pro24.z touch-screen controller, in addition to two-way RS-232 ports for advanced control and monitoring of devices. For their innovation and high performance, the Pro24.z and ProLink.z were honored with a 2011 Custom Retailer EXC!TE Award. The ProLink.r features an integrated 433-MHz RF antenna for one-way communication via the Pro24.r touch-screen controller.

For the ultimate control experience, an iOS app for the ProLink.z will be released in April that allows the processor to integrate with the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. An app for the ProLink.r and for Android devices will be available later this spring, along with the iPro.8 companion controller, which enables users to add the convenience of a dedicated remote when combined with a tablet, smartphone, or PC for A/V control.

All Pro Control solutions are programmed using the company's easy-to-use, wizard-style software. Available only to authorized dealers, Pro Control's software allows for unmatched customization and includes efficient features such as "auto program," which dramatically reduces programming time to increase profitability for installers.

Pro Control solutions are now carried nationwide through distributors including ADI, Audio Video Warehouse, AVAD, B. Rich Company Inc., Custom Distribution Limited (CDL), Davis Distribution, Easy Access Distribution Inc., Tech Source Distributors, The Progressive Group (PAD), Viking Electric, as well as worldwide through 22 international partners. The Pro24.r and ProLink.r are available at an MSRP of U.S. $249 each, while the Pro24.z and ProLink.z are available at an MSRP of U.S. $449 each.
