IBC 2011 – Take your remote control device to the next level

With September now upon us, we’re gearing up for IBC which takes place from 9-13th September at the RAI in Amsterdam.

We’re looking forward to catching up with our customers and meeting new people, and talking about the seemingly-forgotten problem of having to use old-fashioned remotes to try and control new modern, smart TVs that give access to a lot more than broadcast TV channels.

We’re taking the uWand team to IBC so there will be an opportunity to meet with members of our product development, sales and management teams, and chat with us about the newest developments in interface and navigation for smart TVs. We’ll also be demoing with our partners.

Hall 1 will be quite a party with NDS across the way and Nagravision at the end of the corridor. We hope you can join us for a chat at our stand (1.A81) to find out how you can achieve a touch screen experience for Smart TVs through the remote control, and add sophistication to the current lean-back user experience.

Follow us on Twitter (@uWandControl), Facebook or YouTube for our latest views and news about IBC, and we look forward to seeing you next week.
