Richmond, Calif. — Keyspan has begun shipping its RF remote for Windows Vista.
The remote control lets users operate the Windows Vista media player menus to play back audio, video and photos.
The remote uses an RF signal that doesn’t require line of sight, and works through walls and furniture.
“The RF Remote for Windows Vista gives users more flexibility in locating their PC,” said Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. “Since the RF signal works through walls and furniture, users now have the option of placing their PC in an A/V cabinet or closet.”
The remote has a suggested retail of $49, and is available to consumers at the Keyspan online store, PC Connection, Buy.com, Amazon.com and other leading resellers. It is available to resellers in the United States through distributors Ingram Micro, D&H and Wynit.
