Universal Electronics Inc., the Leader in Control Technology for Home Entertainment, Presents Latest Control Solutions

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) (NASDAQ: UEIC), the worldwide leader in universal remote control technologies and control interfaces, is coming to the International Consumer Electronics Show for the 22nd consecutive year in 2014, highlighting the latest innovation in control technology for home entertainment.

Key product and technology demonstrations will include a host of embedded technology consumer accessories designed to enhance the control and entertainment experience. Highlights will include:

UEI QuickSet™ 2.4

The latest generation of QuickSet follows up on the success of the UEI platform that is currently deployed in over 70 million devices around the world including set-top boxes, connected TVs, media devices, game consoles, smartphones, and tablets. UEI QuickSet 2.4 delivers the simplest and most intuitive universal remote control setup and control experience available today. This technology enables an AV device remote control to be setup and programmed to control virtually any television or entertainment device in the home, with minimal, if any, user input.

UEI QuickSet 2.4 includes features such as:

  • automated device setup using HDMI-CEC connections to automatically identify the device brand and model number of connected devices without requiring user input;
  • automated device detection, and IR control, of IP connected AV devices;
  • enhanced control code lookup feature combining search by service provider and set-top box manufacturer;
  • optimized setup maps that deliver a consumer-friendly user interface to determine the exact control code for the system; and
  • a cloud-based service to ensure access to a real-time device code database that is continuously updated with the latest control codes for the newest devices on the market, making the universal control interface easy to setup and future proof.

UEI Control Plus™

Control Plus simplifies the home entertainment setup and control experience across all AV devices. This technology solution addresses the most common consumer challenges in universal AV control such as remote mode confusion, and switching to the right input. With UEI Control Plus technology, consumers can simply plug in a new device, have it discovered and setup automatically, and have activities such as “Watch TV” automatically enabled from a single universal remote control.

Key Features of Control Plus Include:

  • Automated Setup – automatically detects and sets up most IP and HDMI-connected devices.
  • Dynamic Key Mapping – remote buttons automatically map to appropriate devices based on the active content source device.
  • One Touch View (OTV) – a single button press instantly gets the user to their chosen content.
  • Smart device integration – brings universal control into second screen apps.

Advanced Control Features Utilizing RF

Home entertainment control continues to evolve as demands from consumers, and additional device requirements, have driven advances in navigation, design, and two-way interactions between devices and remote controls. UEI is the industry leader in RF solutions, with over 30 million RF control units shipped in 2013 based on standards such as RF4CE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Deployed solutions include control technologies for the leading brands in home entertainment such as Panasonic, Sony, Comcast, DIRECTV, Roku, and others.

Key highlights of some of the advanced control feature demonstrations include:

  • Touch Pad Control – experience the Viera Touch Pad Controller from Panasonic especially designed for web page browsing, designed to fit snugly in your hand. Scroll and click for easy navigation similar to a PC experience.
  • Content Mirroring made easy with NFC – see how Sony utilizes NFC and RF in a controller to easily mirror content from a smart phone to the TV.
  • Motion and Downstream Audio – implementations of Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart enabling advanced features and time-tested performance.

Designovation

Another annual tradition for UEI at CES is the DESIGNOVATION showcase, blending design and user experience to create products that are both aesthetically beautiful and functional to ensure successful product adoption. This year at CES, UEI will present three new design concepts aimed at addressing real user needs and improving the home entertainment experience through innovation in design.

Invited guests are welcome to visit Universal Electronics and experience live demonstrations at booth 20612 in South Hall 1 at the International Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, 2014.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
