News Image
Universal Electronics Inc. is to unveil the latest upgrade to its QuickSet platform to the EMEA market, at the upcoming TV Connect show later this month.

QuickSet is an embedded software solution for one-touch view control that requires no manual device setup or programming.

The QuickSet software ensures that a growing list of smart devices and other electronics can seamlessly control the home entertainment experience. The software is currently deployed in over 100 million devices around the world including set-top boxes, connected TVs, media devices, game consoles, smartphones, and tablets.

The upgrade sees UEI redefining control across all screens with the incorporation of Control Plus Technology. Control Plus Technology features a rules engine for hybrid control of devices dynamic key mapping, one-touch view and smart device integration.

QuickSet 3.0 is available for television, mobile and set-top boxes and features include:

• Automated Device Set Up – automatically detects and sets up control interfaces for most IP and HDMI-connected devices using data transmitted over these networks

• Intelligent filtering and prioritization based on market and location-specific metadata to show only relevant equipment

• Device control database that is continuously updated and connected via online web services

• Support across a range of platforms including Linux, Android, iOS, and Windows as well as specific services for RDK and Android platforms

• Support for any bi-directional wireless standard for over-the-air download to a remote device, including ZigBee RF4CE, Bluetooth Smart, and Wi-Fi.

Control Plus technology, now available as an optional feature in the latest QuickSet SDK, addresses common consumer challenges in universal AV control, such as mode confusion and input switching. With Control Plus technology, consumers can plug in a new device, have it discovered and set up automatically, and have activities such as "Watch TV" automatically enabled with a single touch.

Universal Electronics is sponsoring TV Connect 2015 in April at London's ExCeL, where QuickSet 3.0 will be on display on stand MR2.
