BUENA PARK, CA, Jan 19, 2001: The company's first touch-pad remote control has been introduced by Yamaha Electronics Corporation. The new model, designated RAV-2000, is a sophisticated programmable unit that comes preset with Yamaha IR codes as well as codes from other manufacturers. The RAV-2000 has learning remote capability, and 7 programmable direct access buttons provide easy set-up. Designed to be the controller of complex home theater systems, the new touch-pad is macro capable and can handle up to 255 commands per macro. The macros are individually set and can be edited and changed by computer. An RS-232C serial port connector allows the RAV-2000 to interface with a PC for complex programming and future expandability.

The large, dynamic LCD screen features a high-resolution, 320 x 240 pixel display. The direct access and LCD screen are backlit for easy reading at night, or in a darkened home theater environment. The backlighting can be adjusted so that the readout and keys are easy to operate, but not so bright as to be distracting.

Other features of the new Yamaha RAV-2000 touch-pad include infrared sending and receiving sensors and 2 MB of flash memory. It has an operating distance of 30 feet.

The Yamaha RAV-2000 touch-pad remote control has a suggested retail price of $499 and will be available in May, 2001. For information on other Yamaha products, visit the Yamaha website at
