The term ‘home theater’ is a lot like the word ‘restaurant.’ A restaurant can be anything from a noodle stand in Nagoya to a ritzy ristoranté in Rome. Home theaters cover the same range. For some, home theater is a living room with a flat screen TV, a cable box and an AV receiver—fairly basic but very effective. For others, it’s a dedicated room with comfy chairs, a front projector, motorized screen and adjustable lights. There are even hot tubs with pop-up TVs and surround sound speakers.
Add more equipment like a game console, PC media server, Blu-Ray player, iPod dock—the list goes on and on. Sooner or later you’ll reach the point when you realize how important it is to control the experience of home entertainment.
URC knows a lot about controlling home theaters. We pioneered the category while other companies built electric razors and toothbrushes and wondered what to use control for. Over the past ten years alone, URC has sold more than 50 million remote controls into the home theater, consumer, cable TV and OEM markets. We’ve worked hard to earn a place in your family room.
With the help of a custom installation professional, all URC remotes, beginning with the affordable color LCD MX-450 right up through the Wi-Fi MX-6000, can effectively control virtually any home theater system and offer “no pointing” RF when used with a URC base station or system controller.
