Destiny Networks Unveils the Domain 2000 IP -based Expansion for the Domain 3000 Morgan Hill, CA - - - September 6, 2005 - - - Destiny Networks today announced the Domain 2000 that extends the capability of the Domain 3000 to additional rooms - providing more sense and control ports, and providing a Powered RF Antenna port, in a remotely connected box. Typically, the Domain 2000 will be located in the Family Room or Master Bedroom as a remote entertainment controller to obtain simple and reliable control in those rooms, too. Simple and Reliable Entertainment Control The Domain 2000 uses the same Powered RF Antenna as the Domain 3000 to reliably receive commands from an easy -to -use remote control such as the RC -1 or from other more sophisticated remote controls such as those made by Pronto and Universal Remote. The Domain 2000 also has a full compliment of six independent IR emitter ports, two video sync power status inputs, two digital power status inputs, and two RS -232 ports - suitable for controlling most entertainment systems. It communicates with the Domain 3000 via TCP/IP over Ethernet to enable every room in the home to control entertainment, lights, HVAC, security systems and more. The Domain 2000 provides the homeowner with the same ease -of -use and reliable control as other high -end system controllers. Once the Domain 2000 is installed, the homeowner can press a single button on the Destiny Networks' RC -1 remote control to play the desired AV source (such as a DVD player, satellite receiver, TiVo, etc.). The button press causes the RC -1 to send a short RF command to the Domain 2000, which may then communicate with the Domain 3000 (if necessary) to control all of the AV components in the path from that source to the TV display and/or speakers in the room. The Domain 2000 monitors the power status of the AV components and maintains state information so that it knows how to process the commands received from the homeowner. With the previous introduction of the Domain 3000, the home theater became easy -to -use and reliable. Now, the Domain 2000 makes the other entertainment centers in the home easy -to -use and reliable, too. Quick to Install The Domain 2000 provides the ease -of -configuration and ease -of -installation typical of lower -end programmable remote controls. Installation is quick and easy because the Domain 2000 is configured by a software application - instead of a programming language. Just use the simple pop up menus to configure the Domain 2000 and its ports become available for controlling all other types of devices that the Ubiquity software can control. Pricing and Availability The Domain 2000 has suggested retail price of $495 and is presently shipping in quantity.
