New Device From Universal Remote Control
Universal Remote Control last week unveiled its latest home theater remote, which is known as the Complete Control MX-450. The product is geared towards easy programming, especially by custom installers
The MX-450 features a 176 x 220 pixel two-inch LCD screen, with up to 48 channel logos available. The remote can control up to 18 devices.
“Many installers do not have laptops with them on the job site,” the company’s director of marketing, Jon Sienkiewicz, said as part of the announcement. “In order to expedite some smaller projects, they often utilize remotes that program ‘standalone,’ meaning they don’t require a PC—but installers often get frustrated trying to program macros on them. The MX-450 enables installers to program and, more importantly, edit macros right on its beautiful screen. It’s the best of all worlds for an entry-level or secondary-room home theater installation.”
