Novosibirsk, Russia, September 14 — VITO Technology, a well-known software developer for Pocket PC, announces major update of its popular remote control application. VITO Remote becomes compatible with the latest generation of Pocket PC running Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.
What is VITO Remote?
VITO Remote is an application designed for Pocket PC to control any devices, equipped with an infrared port or a remote controller. Such devices include, but are not limited to: TV sets, stereos, VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, cameras, TiVo boxes, and garage gates. VITO Remote substitutes all standard remote controls providing a single universal controller.
VITO Remote utilizes standard infrared port of Pocket PC to send signals to the controlled device, which makes the program compatible with almost all Pocket PC models available in the market.
How does it work?
VITO Remote comes with 50 pre-defined profiles for various TV and VCR models. Each profile includes sets of commands and graphic interface. After an on-screen button is pressed (either with a stylus or a finger), VITO Remote sends a respective signal (i.e. “turn off” or “volume down”) to the receiver, that is a TV set, VCR, or other electronics.
Commands can be organized into macros to perform several actions (such as “turn on and then switch to channel 5”) with a single button press.
VITO Remote can work with virtually any home or office equipment. This is achieved in two ways. Firstly, the program can be quickly and easily trained the desired signals using standard remote control. VITO Remote will record all acquired commands and store them in created interface. Secondly, VITO Remote supports CCF (Cabernet Configuration File) files that include settings for infrared signals and interface, which can be color or black-and-white. VITO Remote supports both. CCF files for practically any device can be found in the Internet, installed onto Pocket PC and opened with VITO Remote.
Why the update to version 3.5 is so important?
VITO Remote, version 3.5 features three critical updates, especially important to the users of the latest models of Pocket PC running under Windows Mobile 2003. Beginning from version 3.5, VITO Remote supports the latest Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, including global font size settings and landscape orientation mode for handhelds that have infrared port on their right or left side.
Highly-demanded full-screen mode for any screen orientation has been introduced in version 3.5. Not only Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition users can enjoy the full-screen mode, rather Win CE 3.0 and Windows Mobile 2002 users as well.
Incompatibility issue with Intel xScale PXA 27X processors has been solved. VITO Remote 3.5 is now compatible with the latest generation of Pocket PCs, such as Asus MyPal A730, HP iPAQ hx4705, and Dell Axim X30.
