Destiny Networks Announces the Powered RF Antenna for the Domain 3000


Morgan Hill, CA - - - January 31, 2005 - - - Destiny Networks, provider of premier entertainment controllers and more, today announced the Powered RF Antenna for the Domain 3000 - providing significantly greater range and longer battery life for RF remote controls. It also enables seamless integration with RF remote controls from Phillips and Universal Remote.

In the past, the Domain 3000 - like most other home theater control systems on the market - used a passive RF antenna to receive the signal from the hand held remote control. While the passive antenna worked reasonably well, the new Powered RF Antenna works even better.

The Powered RF Antenna provides greater range which enables the use of lower -powered remote controls, and this means longer battery life. For example, the RC -1 remote control can last many months on just two AAA batteries - as compare to a single month for some higher powered RF remote controls.

The Powered RF Antenna on the Domain 3000 also works with RF remote controls from other vendors - providing homeowners many options for the look and feel of the remote control while, at the same time, eliminating the need for the integrator to spend hours programming those remote controls. The Powered RF Antenna has been tested with the TSU -3000 and TSU -7000 from Phillips and the MX -350, MX -600, MX -800, MX -850, and MX -3000 from Universal Remote.

And for those occasions when the antenna needs to be located a long distance from the controller, the Powered RF Antenna can be extended with a low -cost and easy -to -manage 22 -4 wire instead of the more costly and harder -to -install coax cable of passive antennas.

"The Powered RF Antenna sets a new standard for RF reception", said Michael Sprauve, VP of Engineering at Destiny Network. "We believe this will become a trend for all entertainment control systems in the near future."

The Powered RF Antenna plugs into the Domain 3000. The Domain 3000 is the premier entertainment controller. It provides the homeowner with a reliable and easy -to -use theater experience, but is quick and easy for integrators to install - all for under $1,000. The Domain 3000 is a dedicated, IP -based controller with no moving parts and all solid state memory. It offers the homeowner a broad selection of remote control options, as well as, a rich graphics interface via a wireless web tablet. Most importantly, it is compatible with Ubiquity™, Destiny`s configurable software application that totally eliminates custom programming - enabling quick and easy installation and repeatable results.
