You’d think that the brand name “Elite Screens” would tell you everything there is to know about the company in question, namely that they make projection screens... but they’re far more versatile than that and delve into other fields such as home theater seating, speakers and accessories for all of the above.
While comfortable in your new chairs, that nifty motorized screen would naturally benefit from the convenience of a remote control - and Elite Screens figured that if you’re going to commission a custom remote, then it may as well be a full fledged universal model instead of a lackluster single-device units that are more typical.
The new ZR800D is an 8-device remote that, in addition to controlling Elite Screens’ own products, can also operate almost everything else in a home theater system thanks to a built-in database with 500 preprogrammed device codes, full infrared learning, plus macro capabilities. On the hardware side the remote sports a small LCD screen for the current mode and time, plus an impressive count of 53 hard buttons.
The price wasn’t included with the press release materials; however it would appear to retail for approximately $99 USD (and is included with Prime Vision model screens).
Two DACs, a delay module and extender kit highlight new offerings.
Features push-to-talk voice control of Amazon Alexa and Apple TV via Siri.
