Universal Electronics Remote Control Solutions Enhances User Experience On Smart TV Platform Powered By Snapdragon Processors

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) (NASDAQ:UEIC), the global leader in wireless control technology, today announced the integration of UEI’s technology with a smart TV platform powered by Snapdragon processors to enhance the user control experience in connected “smart” televisions and Over-the-Top (OTT) services. The UEI technologies include Universal remote control Application Programming Interface (UAPI) and eXtensable Multimedia Protocol (XMP®).

Research by DisplaySearch estimates that there will be 123 million connected “smart” TVs shipped by 2014, while survey data from Bain & Company suggests that Connected TVs are poised to reach 60% of US households by the same year.

Next generation Snapdragon processors by Qualcomm address the rapidly growing opportunities in smart TVs and media adapters by intelligently integrating optimized processing performance, graphics, multimedia and connectivity while maximizing power efficiency.

“We are excited to enable an enhanced user experience through the integration of our flexible UAPI offering into the smart TV platform powered by Snapdragon processors for connected TVs and Over-The-Top service providers,” says Arsham Hatambeiki, Executive Director of Applied Innovation at UEI. “Entry of such a well-known processor into television and set-top box opportunities emphasizes the increasing importance of interactivity and applications in our industry. The combination of user interface possibilities of this platform and the range of available features in UAPI is valuable and greatly benefits end-users.”

Universal Application Programming Interface (UAPI)

UAPI is a software communication standard on a remote control that is integrated into target devices such as set-top boxes and interactive televisions which provides the ability to rapidly customize features and reduces the time-to-market for bringing advanced navigation features between remote and target device.

Common wireless standards currently used on remote controls such as Bluetooth, RF4CE and Z-Wave do not provide all of the features that are available on today’s control platforms. With UEI’s UAPI, additional plug-in modules can be applied that empower features not available with the original standard. This makes it easy to add new features directly on a remote with the confidence that the target platform can scale to support new features.
