You can now use your voice to control your Windows Media Center
Amulet Devices announced today that they are now shipping their Amulet Voice Remote for Windows 7 Media Center.

This innovative remote control, previewed at CES 2010, allows control of Windows Media Center through simple voice commands. It is fully compatible with Microsoft's Windows 7 Media Center, and also older Windows Vista Media Center systems.

With the recent proliferation of digital entertainment, navigating large volumes of content is cumbersome. Voice control enhances the Media Center user interface experience, providing an intuitive, efficient means to search and control your music, movies, photos and TV.

The Amulet Voice Remote also operates as a standard infra-red Media Center remote. It includes full IR learning capability to allow users to control up to four additional audio visual devices.

In conjunction with product availability Amulet Devices is launching a reseller program focused at the home automation and high end home theater community. Pat Lawless, President, Amulet US commented, "We have had significant interest in the product from CEDIA installation specialists and home automation vendors. We are taking applications from these organizations and building a reseller channel that leverages the significant benefits that voice offers as a control interface, not just for media, but in many home automation applications. We look forward to demonstrating Amulet's potential in this area at the forthcoming CEDIA 2010 event in Atlanta on 24 September."

The Amulet Voice Remote retails for US$259 and is available now in the US through the company’s website or from their reseller network. The company will release the voice remote in Europe early in the 4th quarter of 2010.
