SMK Electronics to Showcase Advanced Remote Controls at the CableLabs® Summer Conference 2016

Keystone, Colorado, August 8th, 2016 --- SMK Electronics, a division of SMK Corporation, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of OEM remote controls and electronic components, announced today that it will be showcasing several new advanced remote control solutions this week at the CableLabs® Summer Conference.  The Conference, to be held August 7th – 10th in Keystone Colorado, is open only to registered Cable Operator attendees and participating vendors.

"We are pleased to be demonstrating our newest cable remote control solutions at CableLabs’ Summer Conference,” said Paul Evans, President SMK Electronics Corporation. “As Cable Operators enhance their digital TV services with greater content choices and more advanced services, the search interface progressively requires a more intuitive remote control device. Subscriber engagement will depend, in part, upon the effectiveness of the user’s interaction to these services—the set-top box remote control.

“SMK’s remote control solutions not only give the subscriber more intuitive control of advanced entertainment content,” continued Mr. Evans, “they provide the Cable Operator with solutions incorporating human factors & usability principles to minimize task complexity, while enabling user ease in connecting to and interacting with entertainment content.”


SMK's 'Evolution' Cable Remote Control

Designed primarily for cable entertainment applications, SMK’s ‘Evolution’ set-top box remote control is available in two model solutions: a traditionally-sized full-function remote hosting up to 47 keys; and a smaller 9-16 key version. Both support the latest user interface (UI) options (including Voice Command, Gesture-Based Navigation and Touchpad Cursor Control), powered by IR, RF, Zigbee® RF4CE and Wi-Fi Direct® communications protocols.
