    The AV|Shadow™ easily transforms your BlackBerry® smartphone into a universal remote giving you complete control over all of your home's audio/video equipment.

    Just like your regular remotes, use your BlackBerry® to quickly change channels on your TV, skip to the next chapter of your DVD, adjust the volume on your audio receiver or navigate through the guide on your set top box. Our intuitive interface makes it easy to access any and every button on your devices. So go ahead and reduce your clutter....put away those old remotes.

    Setup is simplePlace the AV|Shadow beside your equipment and plug it in. Your choice of setup in front of your equipment on your BlackBerry or on our website, gives you the ultimate flexibility to ensure that you're instantly able to control your equipment. Customize your buttons and activities to the way you will enjoy them. You can now make your personal smartphone your personal remote.

    Enjoy the freedom of using your personal remote control in any room that has an AV|Shadow connected. You can add other family members with a BlackBerry allowing them to also instantly transform their smartphone.

    Each personal remote also has our UnifyGuide™, providing you TV listing information just like your digital cable or satellite box. Now, you can plan your evening entertainment right on your phone. Use our search feature to quickly find shows or movies you want to watch and put them into your calendar as a reminder or add them to your favorites list along with your favorite channels.
