Logitech introduced the Logitech Harmony 1100 advanced universal remote control at the CES 2009. The new Harmony 1100 is delivering home entertainment control through a customizable, 3.5-inch full-color touch screen.
The Harmony 1100 remote has received the CES 2009 Design and Engineering Award: Best of Innovations in the Home-Entertainment Accessories category – the second consecutive year a Logitech Harmony remote has been honored with this award. With a single touch, the palm-sized Harmony 1100 remote puts the power to control your home-entertainment in your hands. With its fully redesigned software, the 3.5-inch touch-sensitive screen – which features QVGA resolution – gives you a brilliant base from which to control your system. Using the new Harmony software, you can select the commands you use most and put those features on the screen. If you love to watch movies, for example, and are always using the Play and Pause buttons, you can tell the Harmony 1100 to make those commands immediately available on the screen once you start your movie.
In addition to the customizable touch screen, the Harmony 1100 offers simple details that also make it easy to use, such as tactile guides, which are located around the touch screen and help position your fingers so that you choose the right command. The brushed-black aluminum top case and soft-touch bottom case make it comfortable to hold – as well as a stylish complement to your living room. And the Harmony 1100 is rechargeable, so you never have to replace the batteries.
The Harmony 1100 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in February for a suggested retail price of $499.99. Update: See also this video demonstrating the Harmony 1100.
