The UR5U-9000L will be URC’s new top-of-the-line cable remote. It includes all of the features cable operators have come to expect from URC, updated with a radical new design that is sharp and modern. The UR5U-9000L, which runs on two AA alkaline batteries, can control up to five devices, is Tru2way-compliant and possesses optional learning capability. Available in black or silver, it features 63 keys, 64 Kb of memory and red backlighting for easy use in low-light conditions.

“The UR5U-9000L takes our subscription broadcast product line to the next level,” said Bill Baker, URC vice president, national accounts. “It combines our market-leading feature set with the advanced ergonomics and design for which URC is renowned.”

The UR3L-SR4 is a large-button Tru2way remote with multi-color keys and built-in learning capability. Available in black, it runs on two AAA alkaline batteries, can control up to three devices, and features 46 keys and 32 Kb of memory.



“The UR3L-SR4 is an easy-to-use cable remote that is perfect for the senior market, as well as for hospitality applications,” said Baker.

URC offers subscription broadcast providers a level of support that approaches that of an in-house remote control department. Its customer service department is individually tailored to meet each provider’s needs, and offers a toll-free 800 number, free onsite training and free dedicated website support. To further reduce costly service calls, URC maintains one of the industry’s most robust device code libraries for the A/V components that cable subscribers use.

URC’s unsurpassed warranties offer the highest level of protection in the industry: five years on mechanical defects or failures, and two years on key text. URC subscription cable remotes are ISO-9001 manufactured in North America for quality-consistent, on-time delivery. Its full-line retail program provides a cost-effective way for cable operators to leverage and reward premium, top-tier customers.
