Calypso has a new controller for AV gear. The CB-1000 is a single-gang, wall-mount IR panel with eight tactile, programmable buttons. It can be used as a stand-alone controller by wiring it directly to devices requiring control. Or the CB-1000’s IR output can interface with Calypso’s Pro I/O or ION controllers to increase the number and types of components being controlled.
It has an onboard serial programming port and on-board IR learning. Once an IR code is learned, it can be assigned to a button. Also, a complete, fully-programmed CB-1000 configuration can be automatically copied to additional units via the same serial port.
MSRP is $249.
