Ireland-based Amulet Devices will launch its new second generation voice-enabled remote control for Windows Media Center at CES 2010 this week in Las Vegas.
Amulet Devices' voice-enabled remote control
Fully compatible with Microsoft's new Windows 7 Media Center, as well as supporting existing Windows Vista users, the Amulet Remote uses simple voice commands to provide access to any media item in a home’s digital library – music, television programs, movies, home videos, and photos.
Building on the company's previous successful voice-enabled remote for Windows Vista, a CES i-stage nominee, the new product features a new case design, improved voice capability, and full IR learning capability, according to the company.
"CES is the most important show we attend each year, and we can't wait to let visitors get some hands on experience with our new model,” Amulet Devices CEO Garry McMullan said. “I know they'll be amazed."
"The early feedback from customers who have previewed the new Amulet Remote has been exceptional, and demand is very high,” Amulet Devices U.S. President Pat Lawless added. “This is the remote Media Center users have been waiting for."
In conjunction with product availability Amulet Devices are launching an Early Adopter Program (EAP) for a select number of end-users and resellers. Early adopters will have access to the newest Amulet products and the opportunity to provide suggestions on the features of new products before they are released.
The Windows 7 Amulet Voice Remote is due to ship in Q1 2010 and will retail for $249.
