With all of the universal remote controls out there, it’s getting pretty tough for remote makers to differentiate themselves. This new remote from Sunwave does a good job standing out from the crowd by offering multi-color LED backlighting for its touchscreen interface.
The Sunwave SRC-3200 lets you choose from 7 different backlight colors and an LCD touch panel display that only shows relevant buttons for the current device. It also features such conveniences as a motion sensor that automatically turns on the backlight when picked up. The learning remote has 512k of flash memory and can store 2 pages of soft keys each for up to 8 devices. In addition, it features a nice aluminum case, instead of the cheap plastic one found on most remotes. The remote will also offer PC based software and the ability to upgrade firmware.
No pricing or release date has been announced. Sunwave just says it’s “Coming Soon.”
