Bridging the home entertainment and smart home ecosystems is at the heart of Universal Electronics’ (UEI) presence at IBC. The company says that it recognises that entertainment control solutions are evolving to become the centre of the future smart home, and claims that its latest innovations will extend its reach, utilising sensing technologies that will build the foundation of tomorrow’s smart home reality.
UEI’s new smart controller line INSINQ is a series of all-in-one Pay-TV remotes that it says feature the latest advanced input and navigation technologies including voice, motion and touch control.
The INSINQ series offers native support of UEI’s QuickSet solution, which UEI says is already deployed in more than 260 million devices around the world including STBs, TVs, game consoles, smartphones and tablets. According to the company, it has become the de facto standard for effortless set-up and control.
The company is also featuring its range of technologies and solutions designed to improve the user experience.
