New PayTV Remotes Support Multiple Set-Top Devices—
Cutting Costs and Optimizing Subscriber Engagement

PANAMÁ CITY, Republic of Panamá--()--SMK Electronics, a division of SMK Corporation, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of OEM remote controls, announced today that it will showcase a family of advanced set-top box remote controls this week in Panamá City at Expo-convención Tepal 2015 (Hotel Sheraton, July 23rd and 24th, booth #12).

SMK’s remote control solutions allow PayTV operators to adopt just one model to serve a multiple set-top box environment. Supporting customization options including service provider branding and the addition of regional and unique Audio and Video Device Libraries, SMK remotes reduce logistics, call center, purchasing and engineering costs, while increasing subscriber usability and satisfaction.
