Pete Baker shows off the new Advanced Control University training room at RTI headquarters. manufacturer Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) is furthering its push into the commercial AV space at InfoComm this year.

Founded in 1992, RTI has doubled its personnel in the last year, and in the start of 2009 moved to a facility three times the size of its previous home. A search for a commercial market sales manager has begun, and commercial dealers are being sought. “We are focusing very heavily on commercial market,” commented RTI vice president of marketing Pete Baker. “We had a wonderful debut at InfoComm 08. Dealers were very open and excited about RTI.”

Baker said that RTI is well equipped for the mission critical aspects of commercial projects ranging from classrooms and boardrooms to stadiums. “The control system is the key to the entire system. As far as most customers are concerned, that is the system,” Baker said.

As such, RTI places significant emphasis on “really solid automation processing,” as Baker put it. Macros are stored in the central processor for more reliable command execution. Additionally, with the imminent addition of ZigBee-enabled two-way communication for RTI’s in-wall and handheld touchscreen control systems, drivers will also be stored in the processor.

On the training front, RTI opened the doors to its on-site Advanced Control University in April, and the manufacturer has plans to create more than 50 online videos that drill down into the specifics of products.

Whether integrators have a limited amount of control programming experience or they are well versed in the complexities of code writing, RTI’s Integration Designer software has been designed to be accomodating to all who use it.M
