RE·BL, Complete PS3 Control From an IR to Bluetooth® Converter

The RE·BL from wb_electronics provides complete control of all PS3 functions from any configurable universal remote and comes in a sleek Scandinavian design. This simple to use converter makes the Playstation3 an integrated part of the home entertainment system by translating infrared remote commands into PS3 receivable Bluetooth® instructions.

May 11, 2009 -- The RE·BL is an IR to Bluetooth® converter designed to allow any universal IR remote to control a PS3 system. Using a RE·BL will allow full control of Blu-ray/DVD playback and power-on/off of a PS3 when coupled with any universal remote. The RE·BL is easy to setup and only needs to be paired with a PS3 before it is ready for use. Advanced customization of options is possible by connecting the RE·BL to a PC with a USB port (no drivers required) and using the accompanying PC-software. The RE·BL has a low power usage, supplied from batteries, USB or a DC-adaptor.
The lack of IR support on the PS3 has annoyed many PS3 users over the years. As Blu-ray becomes more and more popular and as the PS3 is one of the best Blu-ray players on the market the need for IR control of the PS3 has become a frustrating problem for many PS3 owners.

The RE·BL solves this problem as an easy to use IR-to-Bluetooth converter for the PS3. No configuration is needed, the RE·BL device works with any universal remote (Harmony, Pronto, USC, etc.) right out of the box. Advanced configuration options are possible with the RE·BL through the USB connection and the accompanying PC-software. The RE·BL is firmware upgradable through the USB connection ensuring any upgrades to the PS3 will not limit future functionality.

RE·BL is configurable so any conflicts with other SONY DVD players can be easily solved, and sequences of commands (macros) can be custom defined to allow for a single keystroke of the remote to control a sequence of instructions. The REBL has a low-power mode for longer battery life and power can also be sourced from a USB-connection or a DC-adaptor.
