CEDIA EXPO 2003, INDIANPOLIS, Booth 1620, RCA Dome Sept. 5, 2003 - Intrigue Technologies Inc., a leader in intelligent remote control technology, expands it's collection of industry acknowledgements with the latest announcement from Custom Retailer Magazine. Rick Albuck, Associate Publisher of Custom Retailer Magazine said, "I am proud to announce that Intrigue Technologies is recipient of the Best Handheld Remote for the Harmony SST -768."
In the latest issue, Custom Retailer announced its debut Excite Awards, given for Excellence in Custom Installed Technologies and Electronics. The Excite Awards pay tribute to the products that best exemplify the excitement and growth of the custom consumer electronics industries. Recipients are selected through consultation among Custom Retailer's Editors and contributors, as well as selected retailers and industry observers. Whether through exceptional innovation, outstanding value, market presence or market impact, the Excite Award winners have distinguished themselves as the leading lights of C -Business.
"Intrigue Technologies is delighted and honored to receive this Award from one of the premier publishers in the Custom Electronics industry," said Geoff Lyon, Intrigue's VP of Sales and Marketing. "The industry has now accepted and recognized that Harmony is no longer the newcomer but fast becoming the standard from which other remotes are measured" adds Mr. Lyon.
Harmony Remote's exclusive Smart State Technology and online device database provides the technical foundation for the simple set -up process and breakthrough ease of use. "By continuing to push the traditional boundaries of hand held remote control functionality, the Harmony Remote products will define a new category of remote, the Personal Entertainment Manager," said Intrigue CEO, Bryan McLeod. "The Harmony Remotes with Smart State Technology demonstrate what can be achieved when you combine Media Integration like TV listings, MP3 playlists, and CD/DVD Jukebox controls. Using your entertainment system becomes a question of which content or activity, do I wish to enjoy unlike other remotes where you hit a button and a device turns on," he added.
Available in many fine electronics stores, the Harmony Remote SST -768 carries a suggested retail price of $299.99. The SST -768 can be seen with Intrigue Technologies' other award -wining products in Booth 1620 in the RCA Dome during CEDIA Expo 2003.

About Intrigue Technologies Inc. and The Harmony Remote
Justin Henry and Glen Harris, two biomedical engineers, originally founded Intrigue Technologies Inc. in 1999. They were frustrated by the complexity of operating a "simple" home theatre system and the plethora of remote control devices that were required. They conceived of the idea that is now the Harmony Remote Control. After identifying the opportunity for a "web -connected" universal remote control, they spent two years developing the Harmony Remote Control, establishing the company that is now known as Intrigue Technologies Inc. The company's vision is to produce revolutionary products that help consumers simplify their every day lives. The Harmony Remote Control has won numerous awards including the prestigious Consumer Electronic Show Innovations Award for 2002, Electronics House Product of the Year Award for 2002, Innovations 2003, Editors Choice at Ascully.com and most recently the Excite Award for best hand -held remote from Custom Retailer Magazine.
