Savant is all about the iPod, so it makes sense that the company would incorporate some of that love into its new Savant Select remote control.

The newly announced controller blends a fourth generation iPod touch into a slim handheld, which has all of the traditional remote features you’ve come to know and love, such as traditional backlit buttons and navigation keys (31 of them!).

Using Savant’s TrueContol II app, this remote has touchpanel functionality inside a slimmer package. It can control everything in your AV setup, as well as lighting, climate control, security, cameras, and anything else you’ve got connected to a Savant Smart System.

It also allows you to switch from that control to a quick game of Angry Birds, or one of the thousands of other apps available from the iTunes Store.

Savant Select is also compatible with TrueCommand, Savant’s On-TV menu, which users to browse and select multimedia content and other services easily and efficiently. Other features include the built-in Wi-Fi and a 3.5-inch Multi-Touch Retina display, which has a 960-by-640-pixel resolution.

The Savant Select is now available via authorized Savant dealers.
