Philips Prestigo SRT9320 remote control announced

Philips has expanded its range of Prestigo universal remote controls with the new Prestigo STR9320.

Featuring a 2.8-inch touch sensitive full colour screen, the STR9320 will allow users to to control up to 20 devices from one handset.

There are 300,000 devices in the Prestigo memory that you are able to sync up, and it's all done on the remote without the need for complicated programming sequences or codes.

The touchscreen area on the remote allows you to set up activity based keys, which will activate all the necessary devices without you having to do it individually. For example, "watch a film" would turn on the DVD player and adjust the TV to the right channel.

Furthermore, the Prestigo touchscreen can be personalised with channel icons for fast and easy access of favourite TV channels.

The SRT9320 comes with rechargeable batteries and a mains charger adapter so there's no worry of searching around for new batteries when they go flat.

No word on pricing but we should be seeing this on our shelves from the end of March.
