Above all, a remote control should do one thing: It should be of service to its user. It makes the diverse functions of the system available very easily and intuitively at the press of a button. The Re:control M208 is an all-rounder that unifies a fascinating range of functions into a single, crystal-clear operating concept. Its ergonomically and logically crafted user interface gives you full control over your complete Revox world. And the M208 is up for learning new things. Even products from other suppliers that you would like to integrate in your Revox system can be “taught in” and controlled with the M208, without problem. In conjunction with building management systems from the Gira and Feller companies, you can even control the room lighting and modify the level of same, to match your individual audio/video experience.
More than just a remote control
The Re:control M208 presents a sleek and functional image in its sleeve of impact-resistance plastic, with an elegant aluminium surface. The backlit display gives off a discrete blue glow and provides the user all relevant information, even in darkened rooms. The M208 is a remote control and a digital media folder in one. The synchronisation connection for the Re:system M51 or M10 and a memory card are both conveniently located behind a protective cover. All the remote control data is stored on this card ensuring that it is available, even if your remote control should be dropped and damaged, for example.
Tailored to your requirements
The Re:control M208 doesn't set you any riddles. It leads you intuitively to where you want to get to. And as with most other components in the Revox world, the M208 can be customised to your individual wishes. The device buttons can be individually assigned, using the Re:control M208 Project Manager software. A maximum of six devices can be assigned to each button, which are then listed additionally on the display. It doesn’t matter how you want to change or enhance
your Revox system in the future. Your M208, with the familiar operating concept, is always ready to serve.
Control your house
Just imagine you are watching an exciting film and someone rings at the door. Using the Gira Home Server and a Gira door communication system, you can see who is at the door on your television screen. If you want, you have the option of opening the door from the Revox remote control.
For this purpose, IR commands are programmed on a special address. When these commands are received in the Revox Multiroom system, UDP protocols are triggered through the Re:connect M202, which in turn are interpreted by the Gira Home Server.
In this way, you can activate lights, window blinds, other switching function or even complete scenes from the Revox world.
Re:control M208 Project Manager
The Re:control M208 can be programmed to meet the personal requirements of each user. For the most important sources, there is an option of synchronising the M208 with the content of the FM tuner, the My Music folder from the multimedia module and the content of the Revox M37 audio server, through a USB interface.
You can find all the current Revox products, many products from well-known brands from the entertainment technology industry and the option of controlling lighting, in an extensive database on the unit. By means of these data bases you can set up your individual programming and control your complete system easily and reliably with the M208.
