Philips Universal Remote Prestigo SRT9320 gets touchscreen treatment

Philips Universal Remote Prestigo SRT9320 gets touchscreen treatment

Not everyone has an All-in-One Home theater system that can manage its full-feature within a single remote control. Thanks to a programmable Universal remote control, I’m able to operate multiple electronic consumer devices using a single controller device on my component shelf, regardless of the brand. If you are in the process to eliminate the need of multiple remote control units, Philips has refreshed their Prestigo Universal remote line-up with SRT 9320 with a 2.8-inch touchscreen LCD screen mixed with hard buttons. It worth a look.

The SRT9320 can control up to 20 devices and is completely programmable to enable multi-devices macro and learning modes. Though it come equipped with a USB port for software update, the device can be programmed directly without the need of the software apps. The touchscreen LCD can display your favorite channel line-up and customized commands.

Unlike their flagship Pronto series remote control, the Prestigo doesn’t has a cradle or charger docking station (doesn’t use rechargeable battery) and it lacks the much-advanced RF capabilities. Priced at $249, Philips' Prestigo SRT9320 is slated to release in the first quarter of 2009.

Latest Pronto remote is ‘Lite’ in name only

Latest Pronto remote is ‘Lite’ in name only

As remote controls go, we all know there're different leagues that they aspire to.  Some low-end handsets are content with replacing a crusty old faithful; others add multi-device control and perhaps a little LCD display.  And then you have the big league, the remotes that actually border on Mensa challenges; Philips' NX ProntoLite easily falls into that category.

Is there a market for the $1.5k remote?

Is there a market for the $1.5k remote?

I've been pretty harsh on universal remote controls in the past.  It's not that I don't see the point of them - quite the opposite, in fact - but just that manufacturers seem to be in a race to fit as many buttons as possible in and end up with something that's more difficult to fathom than the original brace you were hoping to replace.  Still, I'm nothing if not an optimist, and so I truly believe that the right remote is out there waiting for me.  And so like a mildly peckish beaver I devour any reviews that I spot, that empty place in my heart just desperate to be filled.

Latest up to parade itself in front of me is Philips' Pronto Professional TSU9600, which builds on the success of the iconic original Pronto line by strapping on a few extra hard buttons and updating the screen, accompanying PC software and home-automation compatibility.  And so that's how it fell into the hands of the folks over at Automated Home, who promptly spent around 12 hours tweaking it to high-heaven.

Synaptics Boomerang universal remote concept with Multitouch capacitive touchscreen

Synaptics Boomerang universal remote concept with Multitouch capacitive touchscreen

Synaptics are no strangers to the pages of SlashGear, and we've been lucky enough to have hands-on experience in the past with their clever touchscreen concept cellphone.  Back in those pre-iPhone days the idea of an intuitive multitouch UI on a mobile device was pretty far-fetched, with Windows Mobile offering little in the way of finger-friendliness.  Now Synaptics are back with their latest reference design; called 'Boomerang', it's a multi-device remote control that uses the company's capacitive touch-sensitive panels.
