- Increases flexibility and usability of remote control features, protocols, and device connections; and
- End-to-end solution that reduces integration time and promotes future control innovation development.
- Remote finder, a commonly-requested consumer feature;
- Over the Air (OTA) firmware updating, an operator benefit that brings host of upgradability features and lowers risk associated with new technology deployments; and
- Relative Pointing for menu navigation and Absolute Pointing that delivers a virtual “touch” interface on the remote for content, text entry for search and social applications.
