Universal Electronics Inc., better known in the retail market as One For All, has announced two new remote controls at IFA 2008 in Europe. These new models follow the now popular "hard buttons with a color screen at the top" design, and include an impressive list of features. Although these controls have obviously been announced for the European market, where One For All is a much larger brand, we can only hope that they opt to release them in North America as well.
Simply brilliant – brilliantly simple: One For All presents revolutionary remote control unit Xsight
Gronau / Munich, 29 August 2008 – At the start of IFA 2008, the world’s largest consumer electronics trade show, the curtain will rise in Hall 25, Stand 108 as One For All announces the world premiere of its brand-new high-end range “Xsight”. Remote control specialists One For All have redefined the concept in their new “Xsight”. offering a ground-breaking range of user-friendly features and functions: touchscreen, full-colour display, touch-slide navigation, control for 18 devices, favourites complete with channel logos, profiles, macros, activities and the legendary One For All learning function – the list of functions goes on and on. But despite this wealth of special features, the “Xsight”. can be set up in moments with no need for bulky instruction manuals! One For All has designed a revolutionary set-up system enabling anyone to start using the remote control straight after unpacking – an exciting new “out-of-the-box” experience.
