RTI Honored With Two 2011 CEA Mark of Excellence Awards
SHAKOPEE, Minn. — March 24, 2011 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that both its vIRsa Mouse infrared (IR) emitter and its Virtual Panel control interface have been honored with a 2011 Mark of Excellence Award, presented by CEA’s TechHome Division. Awarded at a reception on Friday, March 18, during the 12th annual Electronic House Expo (EHX) 2011 in Orlando, Fla., the vIRsa Mouse was named the Gold award winner in the “Installation Product of the Year” category while the Virtual Panel received the Gold award in the “Software Application of the Year” category.
CEA’s Mark of Excellence Award recognizes outstanding achievement and innovation in trendsetting custom home electronics products. Award entries were reviewed by a panel of industry experts and submitted in Supplier and Systems Integrator categories.
“We are thrilled to be selected for two Gold CEA Mark of Excellence Awards,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “Products such as our Virtual Panel and vIRsa Mouse result from developing a deep understanding of the unique demands of consumers and installers, and delivering solutions that exceed the expectations of both. It is a great honor to have our efforts recognized by the CEA.”
RTI’s vIRsa Mouse is a professional-grade IR emitter offering a sleek, symmetrical design and a host of features to ensure smooth, reliable installations. The low-profile device is unobtrusive and adapts to any installation environment with a flexible film adhesive that conforms to curved surfaces. For fast troubleshooting, a separate holder remains attached, allowing easy removal and replacement of the emitter. A blue LED flasher offers increased visibility but may be hidden during normal operation. For high reliability, a translucent PCB improves the integrity of electrical connections while a built-in resistor protects against voltage overdrive and precision molding ensures consistent quality.
