Ultra-Connected Universal Controllers

The Logitech Harmony Touch Aims to Sync All Media Devices

— October 4, 2012 — Tech
Taking full advantage of touch screen technology, the Logitech Harmony Touch universal remote promises to simplify the way you access your media.

Today, people have a wide variety of ways to view media. There's television, Internet streaming, personal video recorders, networking devices, Blu-Rays, DVDs and Netflix. There might have been a time when one remote would suffice but, with all the different options available, many homes now require 10 or more media control devices. That's why Logitech created the Harmony Touch to help bring things back to the good old days where one remote was all you needed.

Featuring a colorful touch screen that lets users quickly swipe through options, the Logitech Harmony Touch puts all the entertainment right at your fingertips. It's even got Skype integration so you can enhance your video calls by using your TV as a display instead of your computer monitor. And, since it works with over 225,000 home entertainment devices and over 5,000 brands, you can be sure it'll be compatible with all your media options -- present and future.
