Cypress, CA–Universal Electronics Inc.s NevoSL universal controller is now available worldwide.
With NevoSL, consumers have a single control point to control virtually all their home theater and stereo equipment while bridging the gap between digital content stored on the PC. Consumers can play and interact with virtually any song, digital picture or movie, in any room on nearly any device.
“With over 25 million homes in the US that have installed a network and over 200 million legally downloaded music tracks and 80 billion digital photos taken last year alone, consumers are demanding a new class of control,” said Robert Lilleness, president and chief operating officer of UEI.
“The need for device and digital media management is here, and NevoSL answers that demand. With built-in Wi-Fi, infrared (IR) and customization via NevoStudioTM, NevoSL provides complete control–not only of devices and content, but also how consumers want to interact with and enjoy them–delivering a unified entertainment experience.”
“With rich offerings of interactive media, digital entertainment, and content now combining with consumers’ adoption of home networks, a new class of user interface, capable of unifying the consumer’s experience with all this new technology, is necessary and thus inevitable.” said Tricia Parks, of Parks Associates. “NevoSL, with its hybrid or multiprotocol (IR and Wi Fi) support and UEI’s connectivity software, is cool, useful, and certainly a contender to win the hearts and minds of consumers.”
NevoSL will be offered through the custom electronics professional channel, which according to Parks Associates is projected to grow to $8.3 billion in 2005. Featuring UEI’s infrared (IR) code database for device control and upgradeability, NevoSL is guaranteed to be compatible with virtually any manufacturer’s consumer electronics products.
With built-in Wi-Fi, NevoSL further extends the multimedia experience in the networked home.
