AirTurn (www.airturn.com) has released the AirTurn DIGIT, which the company says is the world’s first wireless remote for iTunes and iOS cameras that combines handheld control with foot pedal compatibility.
A silent, tactile button set on the AirTurn DIGIT provides the ability to turn pages, control teleprompter apps, advance presentation slides, and control iTunes playlists on all iOS devices (iPad, iPhone 3S and above, and the iPod touch), as well as iTunes for Mac and PC. The AirTurn DIGIT also gives users the ability to control iOS cameras for remote video and picture snapshots. For hands free pedal control, two 3.5mm (1/8 inch) stereo ports can connect to momentary, non-latching normally open (NO) pedals and switches that replicate the handset button controls (pedals sold separately).
Within iTunes, AirTurn DIGIT users can use the handheld buttons to play/pause tracks, navigate between songs in a playlist, and control volume remotely. With iOS cameras, users can take snapshots or toggle the video camera either with the DIGIT’s handheld buttons or with a connected foot pedal. The AirTurn DIGIT also features automatic Bluetooth pairing with iOS devices for easy connections and fast page turns, as well as a built-in debounce filter to prevent multiple page turns for each button or pedal press. It works with a growing number of iOS and Android apps as well as standard programs such as Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Keynote for Bluetooth-equipped Mac and PC computers.
The standalone handheld version retails for US$79. Two and four pedal versions of the AirTurn DIGIT with ATFS-2 silent pedals retail for $129.95 and $169, respectively. For more info go to http://airturn.com/digit .
