Universal Electronics to introduce new voice remote reference platform at IBC 2017

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI), (NASDAQ: UEIC), the worldwide leader in universal control and sensing technologies for the smart home, is set to launch and demonstrate a voice remote reference platform created using Nuances Dragon TV technology at IBC 2017.

The remote control reference platform designed to accelerate voice control adoption across the pay TV landscape is based on UEIs newly introduced UE878 Bluetooth system on a chip (SoC). The platform is then connected through a reference host set-top box to the speech and natural language processing of Nuances Dragon TV. This years IBC show in Amsterdam will be the first ever opportunity to see the platform in action as part of a joint demonstration between UEI and Nuance.

UEI is a leader in voice remote controls, with 25 million units sold in 2016 alone, and so we are perfectly positioned to witness their strong adoption across EMEA operators, says Menno Koopmans, managing director, UEI. We already have a strong track record of successful deployments in the US, but this is our first foray together into the EU market, and an attempt to further speed up the adoption of voice control technology.

From a technical perspective, we think this is a particularly powerful solution. UEIs voice control technology and Nuances Dragon TV both recently won Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards in the Contextual Voice Navigation for Discovering and Interacting with TV Content category earlier in August.

Dan Faulkner, senior vice president and general manager of communications service providers for Nuances Mobile division, says: It was our goal to speed up the development of voice solutions for cable and satellite TV providers, by enabling users to seamlessly search and discover content using their voice in their local language. Through this cooperation with UEI, communications service providers will gain faster access to additional revenue streams by providing consumers with enhanced access to content and services.

This voice remote reference platform is another step forward in UEIs journey to bring immersive remote-control experiences into the home. Besides QuickSet® the worlds only automated discovery, setup and control software, which has made the universal remote control a simple and user-friendly way to manage the connected home in more than 450 million device installations worldwide UEIs remote controls provide advanced voice search and control capabilities over Bluetooth Low Energy, as well as One-Touch-View for reliable single button content access.

To see the demonstration of the UEI and Nuance products, visit the UEI team in Hall 1 at Stand C41 or the Nuance team at Hall 15, Stand MS4 at IBC2017 from September 15-19, 2017.

Grupo Imagen Prepares for Major National Network Expansion with EditShare Posted: 18/01/2018

EditShare, a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, announced that Mexico-based media conglomerate Grupo Imagen is implementing EditShare XStream EFS 450 scale out production storage, XStream EFS 40NL parking storage, and Flow media asset management to support content automation and fast turn-around workflows. Grupo Imagen was recently awarded a nationwide broadcast television license that expands its current broadcast network to over 190 transmission sites with its multiplex signal across the Mexican national territory. The opportunity requires the broadcaster to build out a network of brick and mortar stations in some of the major cities across Mexico, and thus reinforce its Mexico City hub with an infrastructure that can support connected workflows. The installation of EditShare will aid in the production of the broadcasters telenovelas and news packages; providing a tiered storage environment for fast online production and parking storage with automation that moves media across post production systems and third-party storage platforms, optimizing collaboration and media sharing across workgroups.
