WiFi Speed Brings Cover
Art, Artist, Album and Titles to the Touch Screen!
The revolutionary MX-6000 brings the power of WiFi networking to the home theater, without compro-missing simplicity.
MX-6000 is the first home theater remote control to offer two
independent communications and control methods simultaneously. The
MX-6000 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.

The revolutionary MX-6000 brings the power of WiFi networking to the
home theater, without compromising simplicity. The MX-6000 is the first
home theater remote control to offer two independent communications and
control methods simultaneously. The MX-6000 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. The high speed of the built-in 802.11
B/G WiFi transceiver enables the MX-6000 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.
Internet Connection Provides Real Time News, Sports, Weather and Stocks
When the MX-6000 is connected to the Internet, pre-programmed modules
enable instant access to personalized news, sports, weather and stocks.
Unlike other devices, the MX-6000’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. News, Sports, Weather and Stocks
modules require that the MX-6000 be installed to a WiFi router with an
Narrow Band RF for
The MX-6000 offers home theater owners instant no rules control of AV
receivers, flat screen TVs, projectors, cable and satellite receivers,
DVD players and changers. Unlike other WiFi remote controls, the
MX-6000 uses a second RF (Radio Frequency) transmitter to control
conventional gear instantly, without the frustrating delay of waiting
for the remote control to "join the network" when you simply want to
turn the system on. There are three possible companion RF base stations
that provide instant control. The MSC-400 Master System Controller
enhances the capabilities of the MX-6000 by storing and issuing Smart
Macros to your main system components. These smart macro commands offer
the ultimate in reliability and speed, since a single command,
measuring fractions of a second, can trigger long complex macro
routines with RS-232, IR, relays or even USB keyboard commands to a PC.
The MRF-350 and MRF-260 RF base stations enable an MX-6000 to address
or route IR commands to conventional components anywhere in your home.
By placing MRF base stations near your TVs, cable/sat receivers and
other conventional IR controlled components, you can enjoy instant, no
pointing, no rules operation everywhere in your home.
PC Server for MX-6000
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-6000 Server is a software application that once installed on a PC,
combines your iTunes library with your Media Player library. The
MX-6000 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-6000. All your cover art, artist, album
and song title metadata appear on the screen of the MX-6000. Lists are
navigated via the integrated scroll wheel without ever connecting a
keyboard or mouse to the PC. At last, you have access to all the music
you’ve paid for... all the music you want without the hassles... the
music simply plays...
Reinventing the Touch
Automatic Backlighting The integral motion sensor detects
any movement of the touch screen and automatically backlights the
screen. The user does not have to press any button to display the
screen. Any movement of the MX-6000 renews the backlighting. Without
movement, the touch screen stays lit for 1 to 99 seconds (programmed by
the installer). Not Just Color, Animated Color! Powered by a 533MHz
ARM9 microprocessor, the MX-6000 is the first touch screen designed for
animation. The powerful central processor enables quick, fluid page
transitions and animated macros.
The 4.3” screen offers a 480x272 pixel window to any graphic. Your
professional installer can place BMPs, JPEGs, GIFs, animated GIFs or
SWF files in your configuration. The World of Sound Equipped with a
speaker and a PC recording, your installer can add talking help buttons
(recorded on any PC with a microphone) or music to your macros via any
Double Capacity Lithium
Ion Batteries and Charging Base
The demands of WiFi and high speed transfers coupled with
a large color touch screen raise the demand for power to a new high.
The MX-6000 is equipped with a unique double capacity Lithium Ion
battery, providing over 4 hours of continuous use before recharging is
necessary. Should the MX-6000 be left on a table, it will remain in
standby mode for ten (10) days without requiring a recharge. The
attractive charging base offers an ideal angle to use while charging,
so may be placed on or near your chair. In addition, the MX-6000 offers
a power input on its side panel, so that it can be hand held while
charging directly from the power adapter.
