THE UNIFIER (URC -100) UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL® MAKES HOME THEATER OPERATION SIMPLE

The Unifier ™ offers advanced IR/RF remote control technology making "whole-house" control of A/V components for under $100.00

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, January 9, 2004 - Underscoring its position as the innovation leader in entertainment system remote control design and manufacturing, Universal Remote Control, Inc., today introduced the Unifier universal and learning, programmable remote control system. The Unifier™ brings control of up to 8 individual A/V units into a single, user -friendly and affordable package that delivers performance and features usually found in expensive, complex remote systems.


As extraordinary as the Unifier is from a performance point of view, what is equally remarkable is the fact that the Unifier does all this and a lot more at a $100.00 manufacturers' suggested retail price. The Unifier is the entry -level model in a product range of three breakthrough new retail products from Universal Remote Control, including the Automater™ (URC -200) and the Customizer™ (URC -300), all of which can be coupled with the Expander MRF -100 RF base station receiver. The three units represent an entirely new market tier, between those systems costing hundreds of dollars and used with high -end home theater installations, and the sub -$25.00 remote control market.

The Unifier "unifies" the access control of as many as 8 audio and video entertainment system components including TV, Plasma TV, DVD players, A/V receivers, amplifiers and more, throughout the home or office, indoors or outdoors. The Unifier comes equipped with an internal library of over 1,000 pre -programmed codes to operate the wide range of entertainment devices on the
market today and offers full control over more advanced home entertainment functions such as Video -On -Demand and Digital Video Recorders (DVRs).
Programming the Unifier is intuitive and the unit also comes with a DVD tutorial, so it's anything but intimidating for the users. The Unifier's unique DoubleTap Learning™ feature can accurately reproduce programming from any other remote with two simple key presses, or if needed, programming can be accomplished using the pre -programmed codes stored within Unifier's 4 mbit memory library.

The Unifier IR range is up to 60 feet and the RF range is between 70 to 100 feet when used along with the optional MRF -100 RF base station. Commands are simultaneously transmitted via IR and RF signals to penetrate through walls, floors and reach out -of -sight equipment. When the Unifier is used with the MRF -100 - consumers do not need to "point and click" -they just "click"!

The Unifier also looks great, with an easily readable and customizable 1 1/4 x 3/8 -inch LCD screen and its metallic finish was designed to fit in with the aesthetics of contemporary home theater and entertainment systems. All the buttons on the LCD screen and remote keypad are electro -florescent illuminated when the light button is pressed. Wear -resistant tactile GemStone buttons and a 5 -way thumbpad for controlling menu -driven devices makes using the Unifier accessible to users of all ages.
