SnapStream Media Announces Launch of Firefly Mini PC Remote IR Remote Control Builds on Firefly PC
Remote Technology in Smaller, Simpler Remote Control
March 8, 2006- SnapStream Media,
Inc., a leader in digital home entertainment products, announced today the launch of the Firefly Mini PC Remote.
The Firefly Mini PC Remote features a small form factor and fewer buttons, infrared (IR) technology, driver-free
installation, and seamless integration with SnapStream Media’s Beyond TV and Beyond Media. Firefly Mini
builds upon the popularity of SnapStream’s original PC remote control, Firefly.
Responding to customer
demand for a PC remote control that employs infrared technology, SnapStream Media began shipping the Firefly Mini PC
remote today. The Firefly Mini’s use of infrared technology allows it to work with universal remotes and
integrate with existing home theater systems.
The Firefly Mini PC remote features easy setup and fewer
buttons, for a smaller and simpler PC remote control. Driver-free installation allows the user to simply plug
the USB PC remote receiver into his PC and instantly start using the remote. As a standard Human Interface
Device “HID”; most of Firefly Mini’s buttons trigger keyboard commands that will automatically work
with many applications.
The Firefly Mini PC remote works seamlessly with Beyond TV and Beyond Media,
and will support many other media applications right out of the box, including Media Center Edition.
