The InjectIR is a great solution for anybody who wants to hide their home theater equipment in another room but doesn’t want to run additional cables to make the remote control work.
Orem, UT (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
Many are mounting their large HDTVs on walls and running an HDMI cable to another room or closet, but a huge problem arises: it becomes impossible to use remote controls with Blu-Ray players, DVRs, DVD players, etc. because the remote control’s signal (“IR” or infrared) requires ‘line-of-sight’ vision to work properly.
To overcome this problem, most people are accustomed to extending their remote-controlled devices with Sewell’s popular IR Emitter and Receiver Kit which requires an IR block, IR emitters, and an extra cable for the IR Receiver. This solution is reliable but a pain because it means there are more wires to run through a wall. Why run extra cables when one can “inject” the remote control signal into the existing HDMI cable instead?
The InjectIR is the only solution that will use an existing HDMI cable run to send remote control signals to hidden video devices with no extra cables to run through the wall. It takes mere seconds to install: the user plugs a simple adapter into the TV and another included adapter plugs into any one of the video players. An included IR sensor plugs into the adapter by your TV and sends the captured remote control signal along the HDMI cable. An IR blaster plugs into the adapter on the video equipment side and emits the remote control commands at the video equipment's remote control sensors. All equipment can be controlled with the original remotes from the comfort of the couch, working with all brands.
Preston Wily, Chief Operating Officer of Sewell Direct, expressed enthusiasm over the features.
“The InjectIR is a great solution for anybody who wants to hide their home theater equipment in another room or closet but doesn’t want to add additional cables to make the remote control work. This is a breakthrough solution because it takes less than a minute to install and no technical expertise is required.”
