    LAS VEGAS, Nev., ABC Kids Expo (October 10, 2010) – Summer Infant, Inc.

    Based on a new digital platform, Summer Infant is now able provide consumers with a secure and private connection on a multitude of items.  Additionally, they can offer great new features such as touch screens, 4-way screen splits, multiple camera viewing options, sleek, modern designs, crystal clear audio reception, an impressive range of 400’, and pan/scan and zoom.  Three of the Company’s current video monitors have been revamped with digital technology, bringing the total number of digital video monitor offerings to nine.  In addition to these items, Summer Infant is also launching the first-ever touch screen monitor, called the BabyTouch™, along with several other new platforms.

    BabyTouch™ Digital Color Video Monitor (NEW!  #02000, SRP $249.99, Available Now) – new to the Summer Infant video monitor category is the revolutionary new BabyTouch™.  Small in size and sleek in design, it is the first-ever touch screen video monitor.  With a generous 3.5” touch screen LCD panel, parents can interact and keep an eye on baby using the same smart phone technology available today.  A simple touch of the screen gives parents the ability to adjust the brightness, pan/scan and zoom.  The super quiet camera can be remotely activated so parents can reposition their viewing angle to see baby at all times – even in the dark.  The camera also comes complete with a back-up battery pack for uninterrupted service in the event of a power outage.  Parents also have the ability to add three additional cameras (sold separately) to view up to four rooms or more than one child.  Lastly, the BabyTouch includes a two-way talk-back feature so mom and baby can be in touch at all times.  Revolutionary and feature-rich, the BabyTouch represents the next generation of baby video monitoring.
