Bridging entertainment with universal control

Front and centre on UEI’s stand are Android TV-based remote control platforms. With Google announcing more than 20 operators are set to launch Android TV-based products this year, the company has developed a new product line-up to meet the demands of the fast-changing market.

These remote control platforms use the UEI Android experience from SlingTV. They complement the company’s existing range and feature all of its elements, including QuickSet for auto setup of universal control, voice capabilities, BLE, One Touch View, remote finder, UAPI and the latest Android SDK. The platforms range from minimalistic design with only the minimal number of keys required to full traditional remote control design.

Menno Koopmans, MD, UEI, said: “Consumers are becoming more demanding and now expect to have easy and universal control over all their home entertainment and home automation equipment.

With that in mind, our theme for this year is both reinforcing our ongoing vision to bring the best products into the living room and smart home environments in order to make life easier, and meeting the dynamic requirements of users.

We are showcasing a number of use-cases, technologies and products that effortlessly and intuitively integrate home entertainment control with the smart home.”
