Belkin introduces new MediaPilot multimedia keyboard
With its built-in mouse, integrated AV remote, and wireless, rechargeable multimedia keyboard, the Belkin MediaPilot integrates your PC with your home theater to create a complete multimedia center. The MediaPilot uses Cypress Semiconductor's WirelessUSB technology in the 2.4GHz frequency range.

Where traditional wireless keyboards offer a range of only 3-5 feet, the MediaPilot can operate at a distance of 30 feet. The base serves as a recharging station and charges through Plug-and-Play WirelessUSB technology, removing the need for a bulky power supply and the need to frequently purchase batteries. The keyboard will not lose power from dying batteries either, since the MediaPilot can operate when it is charging in the dock. The base includes a 10-button keypad and directional arrow keys to provide the convenience of a full-size keyboard.

The MediaPilot's integrated remote can control up to eight audio video devices, including a television, CD player, and DVD player. It has smart-remote capability that enables it to learn codes from your new and old audio and video components.

The MediaPilot's built-in mouse is dual-thumb-controlled with three buttons, scroll wheel, and directional pad to move the cursor. Featuring multimedia programmability, its powerful software allows you to program up to 96 unique multimedia, office, software, and gaming functions. Suggested price is US$99.99, and it should be available from 1st November.
