SÃO PAULO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SMK Electronics Corporation, U.S.A., a leading global manufacturer of remote controls and consumer electronics components, announced today that it will show a variety of advanced PayTV remote control solutions during this week’s ABTA Expo & Conference, to be held August 4th-6th at the Transamérica Expo Center in São Paulo, Brazil.
SMK’s PayTV remote controls provide the subscriber with the latest user interface (UI) options, while allowing operators to choose a single remote solution that can serve a multiple set-top box environment. Allowing customization including case branding, SMK solutions readily support the addition of regional and unique Audio and Video Device Libraries; and manufactured locally, they reduce logistics, call center, purchasing and engineering costs.
“Utilizing Bluetooth® LE and RF4CE wireless technologies, SMK’s remote control solutions provide the latest user interface options including ‘Voice-Over RF’ and ‘Gesture-Based’ screen navigation,” said Paul Evans, President SMK Electronics Corporation. “As PayTV operators compete to expand services, success will depend in part upon the subscriber’s interface to these services—the set-top remote control. Providing intuitive control for the most advanced PayTV content, SMK’s remote control solutions are designed to optimize subscriber engagement and loyalty.”
