MX 5000 Universal Remote
The Universal Remote MX-5000 is a 2-way wand-style touch screen color remote that provides network control of many popular IP-based components. In addition to its stunning design it offers a fully customizable GUI on a large color screen that sends vibrating "haptic" feedback confirming each button selection.
Haptic (Touch) Feedback
The URC MX-5000 revolutionizes touch screen operation for all time! It's the first remote control utilizing haptic technology, which confirms button presses with a click you feel.
Not Just Color, Animated Color!
Powered by a 533 MHz ARM9 microprocessor, the URC MX-5000 is designed for animation. The powerful central processor enables quick, fluid page transitions and animated macros.
Engineered to delight both the eye and the hand
The URC MX-5000's bright, vivid color touch screen is mounted in a remote control where every surface, every contour, and every button has been designed to feel "right." Since WiFi 2-way delivers so much more fun, you'll need twice the battery life of other products and the MX-5000 delivers it invisibly, without excess weight or bulk. The weight is perfectly positioned to balance in your hand. Contours are shaped and molded into the back so that your hand can find the perfect position. The entire rear is covered with a soft texture that feels perfect against your palm.
Browse cover art, artist, album and titles from your iPod via the PSX-2 or a PC on your network
The revolutionary wand MX-5000 brings the power of WiFi networking to the home theater, without compromising simplicity. The high speed of the built-in 802.11 B/G WiFi transceiver enables the MX-5000 to display lists of artists, albums or songs and to display the cover art of the selected album on the Now Playing screen of the remote control from the PSX-2 Personal Server. The MX-5000 offers two independent communications and control methods simultaneously. It provides both a narrow band 418 MHz transmitter for instant control of conventional home theater components and a WiFi transceiver for high speed transfer of cover art, artist, album and title metadata.
Advanced Personal A/V Server: PSX-2
CE Pro editor Julie Jacobson called it "the best product of CES 2009." The PSX-2 turns any iPod into an advanced A/V server with onscreen GUI. It provides 2-way on-TV content browsing and selection with cover art plus hundreds of discrete IR commands that enable "one touch to music" programming. It also offers on-remote GUI when installed with URC's award winning MX-6000, MX-5000 or KP-4000 keypad.
Internet Connection Provides Real Time News, Sports, Weather and Stocks
When the MX-5000 is connected to the Internet, pre-programmed modules enable instant access to personalized news, sports, weather and stocks. Unlike other devices, the MX-5000's news, sports, weather and stocks modules are user-configurable without a programmer or a PC. On a whim, you can check out the opposing team's scores, or get the weather forecast for a vacation destination.
Real Time Volume Display on the MX-5000 Screen
Whenever you adjust the volume or press the Mute button, the MX-5000 pops up a dynamic link to your IP controlled Audio Video receiver (the URC 2-Way database includes popular IP controlled products from Denon, Yamaha, Integra and B&K) and displays a bar graph on the screen of the MX-5000 If you need to adjust the sound before the movie starts, you can check the actual setting in real time, by simply touching one of the Volume buttons.
2-Way Display and Control of AM FM, XM, and Sirius Radio
Browse the radio stations available to your IP controlled home theater receiver on the screen of the MX-5000 (the URC 2-Way database includes popular IP controlled Audio Video Recievers from Denon, Yamaha, Integra and B & K).
Native URC Lighting Control - Touch the Screen to Set a New Scene!
At last, you can fully control the lighting in your home without expensive black boxes and exotic wiring. A lighting system can be as simple as a single URC RF lamp dimmer on a lamp that you'd love to control without getting out of your chair.
The MX-5000 directly controls lights connected to URC RF Dimmers and Switches. You can brighten, dim, and recall scenes, and you can store new scenes whenever you like, without a PC or a programmer. Simply manually adjust each dimmer to the new setting, then press and hold the scene button on your MX-5000 (just like storing radio stations in your car).
PC Server for MX-5000 powered by
Converts any PC with iTunes or Windows Media Player into a Powerful Music Server with an Intuitive, Friendly User Interface Instead of purchasing an expensive "Media PC" or dedicated music server, any PC with iTunes and/or Windows Media Player can be connected to your audio system to act as a high powered music server with the most engaging, intuitive user interface you've ever seen.
MX-5000 Server is a software application that, once installed on a PC, combines your iTunes library with your Media Player library. The MX-5000 utilizes its network connection via WiFi to communicate with the server software on the PC. Since all communication happens at WiFi "G" speeds, there are no lags or delays displaying the information or lists on the screen of the MX-5000.
