Speaking of Simplification-- The PocketPoint RF

By Gary Kayye, CTS
I have been speaking and writing about how the ProAV market is in the midst of a transition from over-complication to simplification for about six months. Well, today, I will start a series of columns that will focus on companies and products I believe are getting it.

Each product or company I feature in this series, I believe, is making a significant contribution to simplifying ProAV technology. No, these products cant totally replace whats in the market today, but they might just live by that 80/20 rule. And, if I were them, I would certainly be happy with 80% of the market applications, wouldnt you?

OK, these products arent necessarily technological breakthroughs; technological wonders and some of them could even be considered ugly. But, they do have one thing in common: simplification.

Todays product: the MindPath PocketPoint RF.

MindPath, a division of InFocus Systems, recently introduced their latest RF remote control called PocketPoint RF. A few years ago, I was an avid user of the IR version of the PocketPoint, but when I discovered Interlinks RF controllers in 1999, I started using them (RF beats IR any day in my opinion).
