control of external sources, receiving IR commands from different remote transmitters
without the need for an external IR remote control unit. The RC-8IR can be “locked” to prevent any unintended use.

The RC-8IR Ethernet port is also capable of communicating with up to five separate IP addresses. In a system with equipment already networked, no additional cables are required. The RC-8IR can plug into an Ethernet port and the unit can be programmed or room can be controlled via a Java based graphical interface from an internet connection anywhere in the world.

“The strength of the RC-8IR is in its ability to simplify the operation of the most elaborate presentation systems and its ability to address up to 5 separate IP addresses through its Ethernet port,” said Chris Kopin, Vice President of Product Development for Kramer Electronics USA. “The RC-8IR allows individuals to more readily utilize the full functionality of complex presentation environments by integrating audio, video and computer-video devices and related equipment into an intuitive centralized system. We think A/V professionals will find this to be yet another incredibly powerful Kramer product to add to their systems integration offerings.”

The RC-8IR is currently available from Kramer Electronics sales offices worldwide. Complete product information can be found at www.kramerus.com .
