     The DVD Anywhere 2000 makes it possible for aficionados of DVD to truly
 enjoy their movie experience in front of the best television in the home,
 instead of a typical size computer monitor.  The key to why this system is so
 unique is in its use of 2.4 gigahertz technology to wirelessly transmit audio
 and video up to 100 feet away.
     The Boom 2000 Software automatically configures to remotely control DVD's
 from a handheld remote.  The handheld remote also acts as a universal remote
 and can even send commands to X10 modules connected to lights and appliances.
 The remote communicates with the Boom 2000 software via a RF receiver that
 connects to a free serial port. The software can even control CD's and MP3's
 on a PC using the same remote.
     Setup and installation of the DVD Anywhere 2000 is simple and takes only
 minutes.  Plug the sending unit into the back of a PC using standard RCA
 plugs.  (You may need an adapter for some DVD decoder cards) Plug the
 Receiving unit into the back of a TV or VCR.  Install the Boom 2000 software,
 grab the remote and the snacks and head for the premier viewing spot for
 enjoying a movie in all of the comforts of home.
