Marmitek PowerMid XL remote control extender set

The Marmitek PowerMid XL wireless remote control extender set lets you control audio-visual devices, using their existing infra-red (IR) remote controls or a universal remote control, in situations where the devices are hidden out of sight (for example, in a different room).

Why you might want a Marmitek PowerMid XL

If you’ve hidden your audio-visual equipment away somewhere out of sight, maybe by putting it in a cabinet or even in a different room, then the chances are you’re going to have a problem controlling it. This problem is caused by the fact that most audio-visual equipment uses infra-red light to receive instructions from its remote control. If you think of your remote control as a torch then you need to be able to shine the torch at your audio-visual equipment in order to get it to work. Obviously you can’t do that if there is a cabinet door, wall or ceiling in the way! The Marmitek PowerMid XL remote control extender set solves that problem.

Place the IR receiver in the room in which you wish to use the remote control and the IR transmitter in line of sight of the equipment that you wish to operate. Simply operate your remote control whilst pointed at the IR receiver and the IR transmitter will relay the control signal to your equipment.
