New Remote Control Designs From Philips Home Control At IBC 2013

AMSTERDAM, Sept. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At this year's IBC event, taking place in Amsterdam from 13-17 September, Philips Home Control is introducing two new remote control designs to their off the shelf portfolio for OEMs and MSOs, as well as a number of new technology solutions. Together they address the dynamic and exciting challenges coming from the emerging market of smart and connected devices with endless content possibilities.

Advanced control comes with style

The Surf platform joins Philips Home Control's successful dual keyboard remote control product family. The compact and refreshing industrial design is poised to set a new benchmark in the market. It offers a broad choice of wireless solutions and numerous advanced control features including touch control for intuitive navigation, motion control for gaming and voice input for search, as well as a new head's up text entry experience. That makes it a versatile and effective solution for OEMs and MSOs looking to offer their customers a novel smart TV experience.

Alternatively for the connoisseur who appreciates a remote control as a piece of art, the Argento delivers high-end design with intuitive control. It is a direct result of Philips Home Control's leading industrial design heritage. Every detail of this slim, sleek and simple remote has been carefully thought through and crafted with precision, to achieve its intended look, feel and usability.

Continuing to push innovation

Imagine the possibilities of taking any remote control and simply and cost-effectively turning it into a touchpad. RevoTouch (Revolutionary Touch) from Philips Home Control does exactly that, reusing the same rubber or plastic keys as any normal remote yet it does not need the stiff, flat areas normally required by touch pads.

It delivers full design flexibility for very ergonomic, stylish remote controls that offer both 'normal' key clicks (up / down / left / right / OK) as well as touchpad interactions (flick up / down gestures, cursor control, etc.) using the same cursor pad area.

OEMs and MSOs can also forget about printed manuals, instead they can just give customers the luxury of a graphical wizard running on the TV screen. SimpleSetup already offers a thoroughly user-tested way to program a universal remote. With Philips Home Control's extensive IR code library which can be embedded in the remote or hosted in the cloud, end customers can control their legacy IR equipment in no-time. OnScreen SimpleSetup only needs an HTML browser for painless integration on any modern STB platform. The Philips cloud based service takes care of the rest.
