What makes the IR Encoder so special?

The IR-10 is small, inexpensive and flexible in its use, being compatible with Windows 95 through to Windows 10 opeating systems.   It replaces the IR-1 which reached end of life in 2017, since it was not compatible with the manner in which Windows 10 handles communication through USB ports.

What happened to the CKB-IR1?

The CKB-IR1 continues to be fully compatible with the latest versions of CAW, so that customers using older versions of the Windows operating systems (pre-Windows 10) can work as before.  They are encouraged to move to CKB-IR10 at the earliest opportunity since the CKB-IR1 is no longer manufactured.  The CKB-IR10 is much faster updating CyberKeys and the new CyberLink software is also more easily configured.
