Philips continues to expand its line-up in universal remote controls, by introducing the ProntoNeo SBC RU930 – a new and affordable universal remote control, aimed at the home cinema enthusiast looking for full functionality and maximum ease-of-use. The ProntoNeo is an addition to the current range of Philips’ universal remote controls. It helps make technology easier to use with a consumer-friendly design and the associated NEOedit software.
Bringing it mainstream
The ProntoNeo features a backlight touch-screen LCD display with a resolution of 160 x 100 pixels.
The unit incorporates 15 hard buttons for basic functions and utilizes cursor control for easy navigation.
With the on-board universal database and included Pronto NEOedit software, users can customize their touch-screen by simply connecting or synching-up the remote to any PC. Unlimited macro-command capability is available as well.
Due to the large database built-in, the ProntoNeo controls virtually all IR-controlled audio and video equipment.
