The multi -channel stereo switcher can accept up to 2 additional audio signals and contains digital preamplifiers with computer -controlled volume, bass, treble, and balance controls. Display Partner™ is also manageable through standard infrared remote controls and has an auxiliary IR input port provided on the rear of the unit to connect remote IR sensors. The unit has two 24 watt high efficiency mono -block power amplifiers built -in to drive speakers with a front panel LCD to display TV channels.

Pragmatic Communications Systems, Inc. is a Silicon Valley based company established in 1994 to design, develop and produce a variety of innovative and environmentally conscious products for wireless audio, video and data communications. The majority of the company's products up until 1997 were designed for industrial and commercial applications, after which Pragmatic branched into the consumer market. The success of the older products led to a strong and dynamic technology base, which helps fulfill Pragmatic's mission to create solutions to long unresolved technical problems with designs that are both compact and energy efficient.
