Multi-purpose Remote control

Hey all Hardware gurus,

I am going to start researching on this but before that wanted to ask you guys to share your experience on this .

We are planning to setup a video conference room in our facility and the following would be present in the conference room.

Two 27 inches Television sets
One Sony PTZ camera
One LCD Projector
Possibly mics that are controlled using a remote control.

Our boss wants to integrate all the remote controls associated with these equipments into one remote control (programmable remote) or somekind of a unit that can be placed in the conference table in the room that controls everything.

Would like to know what are the best products or a single remote control unit available for this.
He is planning to spend around $1000 for this..

Apart from this if there is any other simple method of handling all these remotes, Do let us know ..

Thanks
SR

If you're interested in professional remote control sophistication, Creston is the leader.  Pronto makes the best learning remote, but it is expensive.  Less expensive are the Theatermaster remotes, and then there are the cheap ones you get bundled with some A/V equipment (RCA).  So as you can see, there's a wide price range, and which one you get depends on your goals and what you are willing to spend.  Take a look at them and find out what fits best.
