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.
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.
Radio frequency works through walls and from other rooms
A radio technology that allows you to control components not in direct line-of-sight, such as through walls or other obstacles. There are two types of RF used in remote controls: RF to component, and RF to infrared.
Additional functionality through future software upgrades
To keep your device up to date and enhance its functionality you can download new software that becomes available. Connect the device to the Internet, either directly or through a PC, and launch the upgrade utility.
High-contrast easy-to-read monochrome display
High-contrast monochrome display includes special technology to increase light output and contrast ratio. Instead of traditional electrofoil backlighting, LEDs are used to offer much higher light output. Contrast is enhanced because of white backlight instead of the traditional green backlight colour. This results in much improved readability of the screen.
PC software to create your own user interface
PC software is included in the box to customise the user interface of the remote i.e. to create your own screens and define a personal look. After installing the software, and creating your user interface, download it to the remote either via RS232, USB or wirelessly.
LCD screen with backlighting for convenience in the dark
Backlighting is a feature that illuminates the LCD screen or keypad for use in the dark. The two most common types of backlighting include LED and electroluminescent (EL). Remotes backlit with LEDs are typically bright but uneven with a yellow or green colour, while EL panels are smooth with blue, white or green shades.
Settings and codes are retained when replacing the batteries
All settings and learned codes are stored in non-volatile memory which does not need power to function and store codes and settings.
Sensor reacts to ambient light to adjust backlighting
Light sensor is a feature that automatically activates the backlight when the ambient lighting reaches a certain level.
