eLink to Supply ThinkFlood's RedEye Remotes for Smartphones, MP3 Players and Other Web-Enabled Devices to German Retailers, AV Dealers and Residential Custom Installers

WALTHAM, MA and HAMBURG, GERMANY--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) - ThinkFlood (, maker of RedEye remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and eLink Distribution AG (, Germany's leading supplier of innovative AV and telecommunications products, today announced a strategic distribution partnership to meet consumer and reseller demand for RedEye remotes.

ThinkFlood selected eLink as the exclusive distributor of RedEye remotes in Germany because of its strong relationships with retailers, independent AV dealers, and residential custom installers and integrators.

RedEye products turn the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch into universal remotes that offer high-end functionality at an affordable price.

"Anyone can use RedEye to transform their handheld device into a controller for all of their equipment -- and installers can apply their AV experience to the RedEye app's completely customizable interface to create the perfect controllers for their clients."
