 ! USB-UIRT Overview

USB-UIRT (Universal Infrared Receiver/Transmitter) allows any USB-equipped PC to Transmit and Receive Infrared signals to common AV equipment.


The USB-UIRT combines the capability of other PC-based IR Receivers with a fully-featured IR Transmitter (sometimes referred to as a 'Blaster'). This allows your PC to not only receive codes from the remote controls you already have, but also to control your equipment (or any device with an IR receiver).


The USB-UIRT's microcontroller is flash upgradable. As bug fixes/new features/enhancements are identified, the USB-UIRT can be easily upgraded by the user to incorporate new firmware.


The USB-UIRT is a Plug-N-Play USB Device. Simply plug it in to a Windows-based PC running Windows 7, 8, 10, Vista, XP, 98, ME, 2K, and Windows will automatically prompt you for the driver disk.


The USB-UIRT was designed with Girder in mind. Girder is a professional-quality Windows Automation tool available here. It allows you to automate events (such a pressing the 'Play' button on your remote) and send commands (such as turning the Power ON on your VCR).

3rd-Party Software Support

Built-in USB-UIRT support for many applications is growing! Among the many applications now supporting the USB-UIRT are:


Developer API

A .dll/.so Library and associated API is being made available to developers to ease support of USB-UIRT into other products on Windows and Linux platforms. Contact support for details.

A Look Inside...

The USB-UIRT uses a microcontroller to handle all IR reception and transmission, thereby offloading this burden from your PC. IR data is then processed and exchanged with the host PC via a high-speed USB link.
