NexGen to Show Patented Duo of Xray Remote Extenders

Solutions-Based Distributor Introduces Award-Winning Technology to European Market

Runcorn, Cheshire, UK January 26, 2012 - NexGen, an innovative provider of unique product solutions for the a/v markets, announced they will be showing the two NextGen X-ray Remote Extenders in # 7T183 at the upcoming ISE in Amsterdam, January 31 - February 2, 2012.


The patented Remote Extenders by U.S.-based NextGen take ordinary remote controls and give them powerful RF capability. By simply replacing one of the remote's AA or AAA batteries with a supplied battery transmitter, the user can now go from room to room and control components up to 100' away, all without the need for direct line of sight. The Remote Extender technology even works behind closets and cabinet doors.

Originally introduced in the U.S. in 2004 and using patented technology, the original Remote Extender has undergone continuous improvement over the years. Recent upgrades though were significant enough to merit a new model name and NexGen now calls this upgraded product the "Plus". The new and improved Remote Extender (€69.00) features a high-speed chipset to work with virtually every remote on the market, extended range to work in virtually any home, UL listed batteries and a green power supply that reduces power consumption.

The Genius (€79.00) has all of the features of the Remote Extender Plus with the addition of the smart receiver that can select from 256 codes that can now control up to 256 same-brand components independently. The Genius receiver features a new sleek design with two emitter outputs for 56k and 38k or both for 38k. There are also two 2/3 AAA battery charging slots.

The Genius is ideal for high-end residential installations with multiple systems such as apartments and high-rise condos as well as numerous light commercial venues such as sports bars, pubs, dentist offices, dealer showrooms etc. The Genius also features UL approved 2/3 AAA batteries and an energy-efficient green power supply.

The Xray Remote Extenders are available now and will be on demonstration at ISE in Amsterdam, Stand # 7T183, January 31 through February 2, 2012.
