As a stand-alone self-contained unit, the IRIS captures IR or wired function signals from a hand controller and instantly captures and verifies the control functions, where they are transmitted to a PC operating the IRLIB program. Designed with versatility in mind, the IRIS captures IR functions from hand controllers for a wide variety of audiovisual equipment such as monitors, VCRs, TVs, and CD players.
