Control Plus technology addresses the most common consumer challenges in universal AV control such as mode confusion on the remote and switching to the right input.
With it, users can simply plug in a new device, have it discovered and set up automatically, and defined activities such as ‘Watch TV’ automatically enabled from a single universal remote control.
Key feature of Control Plus include automated setup and detection of most IP and HDMI-connected devices; dynamic key mapping to automatically map remote buttons to the right functions based on the active content source device; One Touch View (OTV), an automatically generated macro button to intuitively send the right commands to get users to their chosen content; and smart device integration, which automatically sends system control settings for universal control to compatible second screen apps.
Interaction by voice, touch or motion is shown on the new Evoke.
According to Universal, this offers a balanced design that leverages the latest advances in input technologies, touch pad navigation and voice content search, with an ergonomic design that works simply and effortlessly.
The Universal Application Protocol Interface (UAPI) supports advance control commands, such as two-way remote device communication, is fully future proof and allows scalability of the RCU without the need to change the box.
This offers flexibility and lower integration cost for any future RCU that needs to work with the box.
The latest release of QuickSet automated remote control programming is now compatible with the Comcast, Time Warner and Liberty Global backed RDK box reference platform and the latest Zigbee RF4CE (Radio Frequency for Consumer Electronics) wireless communications protocol.
