CEDIA News: Logitech Introduces New Harmony 890 Pro and 895 Remote Controls

While we're on the subject of technology to keep us off our feet and on the couch—are we ever really off it? — Logitech introduced new remote controls at CEDIA, the Harmony 9800 Pro and 895. Logitech welcomes these remotes to the family with its first implementation of RF to IR relaying ($99 transceiver), which means you can at least walk to the fridge while controlling your AV system. Furthermore a RF to USB remote option is available ($99 transceiver) for controlling various computer functions from the remote. Logitech claims that the remotes have the ability to control components in multiple locations, unlike most RF remotes that utilize a single IR emitter. The 890 Pro will be available in November for a suggested price of $449 in the U.S. and the 895 (with its dedicated Teletext buttons) will become available in Europe for a price to be determined.
