The next teaser for the Pronto Professional TSU9600 has just been released on their website - and we've also got the first photographs of the company's new flagship remote!
The latest teasers released today tell us the following:
Designed by installers, made by Philips
When designing the latest Pronto, Philips sought custom installers' feedback to gain a better insight into their needs, and those of their customers. The result is a stylish and intuitive touchscreen that saves the installer valuable time by increasing programming efficiency and operational reliability.
Today, the Pronto has evolved into an integrated control solution for conventional home theater, online multi-media content, lighting and more. With a combination of IR and WiFi control via optional extenders, Pronto provides true multi-room control.
Incredibly sharp display
The 3.7-inch touchscreen has an amazing 640 x 480 (full VGA) display, giving it a higher pixel density than any current touchscreen home control unit. This shows icons, images and text with unbelievable clarity and definition. It also has an exceptionally wide viewing angle, combining comfort, convenience and style. The display has a virtually unbreakable protective screen cover that eliminates a potential cause of failure in touchscreen devices.
The Pronto control solution for custom installs looks stunning with its pin-sharp graphics and ergonomic elegance. It provides best-in-class code learning and ultra-reliable wireless operation.
"We not only created Pronto to look sensational, but also simplified programming, increasing time and cost effectiveness. It's designed around the way you work!"
Great IR learning, a stunning 3.7" 640x480 color touchscreen, WiFi-based extenders, RS-232 control, power sensing capabilities, improved software, plus a durable high-end physical design with 24 physical buttons? I can't wait for CEDIA!

Features push-to-talk voice control of Amazon Alexa and Apple TV via Siri.
