There are a lot of control options to choose from. Aurora Multimedia is making its latest stand out by having it pull double-duty. The new hybrid NXT-1330 combines a control system processor with multiple ports into a web-based touchscreen controller at a very affordable price.
This 13.3-inch touchpanel has a resolution of 1280 x 800, 500nits of brightness and a web server. It also has plenty of conveniences, including a front-panel speaker and microphone, an IR receiver, USB and MicroSD expansion ports, and much more.
If you want to add video into the equation, the NXT-1330V (pictured) has a full scaler built in for previewing of HDMI, RGBHV, YPbPr, S-Video, and composite sources. It can even handle resolutions up to 1080p. In addition, it has special effects like translucent picture-in-picture and side by side preview features.
