The MX-850 is based on Universal’s popular and award-winning Home Theater Master series of remotes, and broadly extends the remote control options, convenience and capabilities for Bravo servers. It includes a bright LCD screen, individually backlit buttons and an easy-to-use ergonomic design. It can control numerous individual audio/video products in addition to the Bravo, and also operate equipment placed throughout the house via radio frequencies (RF) using a small Universal base station at each location. A smart memory back-up system retains the remote’s programmed memory for years, even with dead batteries.

Bravo music servers are complete multi-source and multi-zone whole-house audio systems that include wireless touch-screen control, multiple inputs, and industry-leading features like “Follow Me”, which allows homeowners to move their music effortlessly from room to room as they move throughout the house. The Bravo system is available in one-, four-, eight-, twelve-, sixteen-, and twenty-zone configurations.

The Universal MX-850 will be available in January 2005 from authorized Meda dealers. It was seen with Meda’s Bravo music servers and other outstanding products in Booth 21813, Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 1, during CES.
