Extensive infrared code database for most devices & brands
A universal IR code database refers to a library of infrared codes built-in to a particular remote. This feature allows a remote to control your equipment without needing to learn individual signals. Select the correct infrared code sets in the database for the devices you want to control, to enable control of virtually every audio/video system element on the market today – regardless of model or brand.
Activities to control multiple devices with one button press
Instead of operating your components one by one, activity based control blends the most commonly used functions into activities such as "Watch a movie" or "Listen to CD". When a user selects 'watch a movie', rather than having the end user address each individual piece of equipment - such as DVD player, TV and multimedia receiver -, one button holds all necessary commands to be able to start watching a movie: switch on the TV, switch on the amplifier and select the right input, switch on the the DVD player and start playing.
Integrated WiFi connectivity for wireless networking
WiFi networking, also known as IEEE 802.11 uses radio frequency signals to communicate in a similair fashion as wired computer networks. It uses TCP/IP networking protocols for the basic communication.
Attractive and easy-to-read touchscreen color LCD display
Color Liquid Crystal Display with touch screen input ensures better readability and the capability to visualize colour buttons and backgrounds. Easy selection of buttons and commands is possible using the touch screen.
Control of media playback from PC to TV or audio set
From the comfort of your couch, you can control the rendering of digital content (play, stop, volume, ...), that is residing elsewhere (e.g. on a PC) on legacy A/V equipment (TV, audio set). The control device communicates over UPnP with the source (PC) and renderer (multimedia adapter connected to TV or audio set) and initiates a content stream between both.
Extra convenience through on-device photo preview
The UPnP protocol allows on-device preview of digital photos that are available in the network.
Auto-update of personalized TV listings from the Internet
An electronic program guide (EPG) is an application used to list current and scheduled programs that are or will be available on each channel and a short summary or commentary for each program. The Internet EPG offers you a program overview exactly tailored to your taste by convenient genre, time and date filters. As program details are refreshed every 24 hours, via a fully automated download over a wireless connection, you're never short of the latest and greatest info on what's on.
Convenient IR learning from another remote
Learning functionality refers to the process through which a remote control captures and stores infrared signals from other remotes for later use. When device codes are not included in the on-board database, they can always be learned from the original remote, simply by pointing to it.
Additional functionality through future software upgrades
To keep your device up to date and enhance its functionality you can download new softwares that become available. Connect the device to the Internet, either directly or through a PC, and launch the upgrade utility.
