Cool pics! Does Russound have a CD player that works on their Rnet link? If not, what CD player are they controlling here and how is it hooked in for control from the touch screen?
Also can you bring up a video camera from within a rule? Are there any surface mount or table stand options for the Elk touch screens?
The ELK booth was using a Sony CD changer connected to a CAM (I believe). The ELK talks to the CAM and the CAM issues the IR commands to the CD player. The CAV or CAM will pass through IR commands. Another case where RNET is more useful is the Russound SMS3 Media Server. This does have a CD tray used for importing but is not technically a CD player. It will automatically rip the CD and get the Metadata from Gracenote or Muze and then this information can be shared with RNET devices: Keypads, Russound Touchscreens, ELK RM ... I am sure Paul could explain this better.
As far as bringing up video with a rule, I don't know how that would be accomplished. Maybe by passing as ASCII string. I can try to find that out, or maybe Spany will see this but he is probably wiped out from CEDIA.
I do not know of any surface or table mount options for the ELK TS-07 but I don't think it's very thick so one could be made from wood perhaps. Russound was showing their touch screen in a table top enclosure but I don't know if that's a released product or not.
When is Elk going to release any software or hardware to interface with Russound?
Does it only work with Russound CAV or any Russound products?
I was told it would be released in the next few months, end of October perhaps. I assume the hardware would be via M1XSP to the CAV or CAM Serial Port. Will work with CAV or CAM.
