SHAKOPEE, Minn. — July 29, 2010 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that its vIRsa Mouse IR emitter has been named as a 2010 CEDIA Manufacturer’s Excellence Award finalist in the Best New Product category. Finalists for this year’s awards were determined by a diverse panel of CEDIA residential electronic systems contractor judges on the criteria of innovation, value to the technician, value to the business, and impact on the client’s lifestyle.
“Built with the professional integrator in mind, every aspect of the vIRsa Mouse IR emitter was designed with the goal of simplifying installations in the field while providing unmatched reliability,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “It is truly an honor to receive recognition for our efforts from the CEDIA community and to be named as a finalist for this prestigious award.”
The low-profile vIRsa is unobtrusive and adapts to any installation environment with a flexible film adhesive that conforms to curved surfaces. For fast troubleshooting, a separate holder remains attached, allowing easy removal and replacement of the emitter. A blue LED flasher offers increased visibility but may be hidden during normal operation.
For high reliability, a translucent PCB improves the integrity of electrical connections while a built-in resistor protects against voltage overdrive and precision molding ensures consistent quality. The device’s 15-foot cable reaches the entire equipment rack, and an integrated cable-management strap reduces clutter.
The Top 10 Best New Product winners will be announced at the Electronic Lifestyles(R) Awards Banquet at CEDIA EXPO 2010 on Sept. 25 in Atlanta, Ga.
