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 UEI 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.

UEI 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.”

The two new RDK platform remotes UEI is launching at RDK Summit are named “UEI Tatlow” and “UEI Logan.” “UEI Tatlow” is a high-performance voice remote with a premium keypad and optional full backlight, making it easy for people to use it in the dark. “UEI Logan” is a premium voice remote with a unique look and feel including a unibody keypad that is easy to clean.

Both remotes are designed to control live, recorded, and on-demand TV as well as streaming video, and are optionally equipped with QuickSet, the world’s only automated set-up and control experience for home entertainment and smart home devices.

Coinfirm is Setting the Crypto AML Compliance Standard10.8.2022 17:20:00 CEST | Press release

RegTech heavyweight Coinfirm – in its award-winning AML Platform – has introduced support for cross-blockchain risk analysis, in addition to rolling out Entity Due Diligence (Entity DD).

Cross-blockchain analysis takes into account incoming and outgoing transactions on the monitored bridges, asset types, block heights, timestamps and other on-chain data. The analysis type is incorporated into the AML Platform’s Proximity Path algorithms, allowing for the scrutiny of cross-blockchain flows – no matter how many times inter-blockchain bridges have been crossed.
