Ericsson has released details of the Ericsson IPTV Remote, a device for controlling the TV and other media devices throughout the connected home. The device is a single interface for controlling Internet video, the TV, both live and on-demand, the PC and the mobile phone in the home. It also provides a second screen for previewing content, exploring programme guides, browsing the web and chatting with friends and family without a distracting window on the TV screen.
The Ericsson IPTV Remote is part of Ericsson’s IPTV solution and will be managed and provisioned by the consumer’s IPTV service provider. The device can also function as a portable TV in a WiFi-enabled home.
