Australians Trade Traditional Remote Controls for RedEye Remote for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

ThinkFlood and TotalQ Partner for RedEye Remote Distribution in Australia

WALTHAM, MA and PORT MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 10, 2010) - ThinkFlood (, maker of RedEye remotes for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, and leading home theater and two-channel audio importer TotalQ (, today announced a strategic distribution partnership to address consumer and reseller demand in Australia.

TotalQ is now Austrialia's exclusive distributor of RedEye remote, an advanced multi-room, multi-controller system; and RedEye mini, the portable way to control virtually everything from your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

"Australians have been using RedEye universal remote control accessories for iPhone and iPod touch since the end of last year, and we really like what ThinkFlood are doing," said TotalQ Managing Director Rob Sanders. "Carrying the RedEye line means our dealers and installers will have both the best AV equipment, and the smartest ways to control it."

"Australia is a well-known test market for the latest consumer electronics, so we were not surprised to see early traction with RedEye product there," said Adam Shapiro, ThinkFlood founder and Vice President of Operations. "Still, moving beyond the early-adopter crowd requires solid local marketing, so we're thrilled to expand our presence in Australia with a manufacturer and distributor as reputable as TotalQ."

RedEye will be available to Australian dealers beginning in April. RedEye mini will be available this spring.
