Universal Electronics Inc, the world leader in universal control technology for entertainment and smart home, at the 2022 RDK Tech Summit has announced the release of two new voice remotes for RDK. RDK is one of the leading broadband and pay-tv platforms for the cable industry, with the support of hundreds of partner companies and deployed by more than 30 operators. UEI has shipped over 75 million RDK remote controls to date, with leading operators around the globe, making UEI a market leader in RDK control solutions.

In 2017, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences awarded Universal Electronics a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award for its contribution to “Contextual Voice Navigation for Discovering and Interacting with TV Content,” recognizing UEI’s innovator role in the development of the RDK platform. With the introduction of two new remote-control designs, UEI is expanding its footprint to make it simple for the operators in the RDK community to expand their offering with features that consumers have come to expect from pay-tv services, such as voice control and universal operation of TV sets regardless of the brand.

Universal Electronics is collaborating closely with the RDK community to integrate voice and universal control as part of the RDK Accelerator Program, an initiative launched by the RDK community to make it easier for operators to adopt the RDK platform and launch products. UEI’s new RDK remotes serve the same purpose: Since the remotes are pre-integrated, operators can pick one and rest assured it will work with any RDK Accelerator set-top box, relieving them of tedious integration effort and ensuring a short time to market.

Steve Gutman, SVP of Global Sales for Video Service Providers at UEI, said: “We are looking forward to helping customers around the world on the RDK platform to include advanced convenience features such as voice control and automated set-up of their TV and audio devices including soundbars and AV receivers.”
