ruwido presents the new ‘r97’ remote control platform at ANGA Cable 2011 next week. The new r97 is intended to become the new ruwido standard remote control design, succeeding the long serving, extremely popular r77 series.
“At ruwido we have been saying for a number of years that TV input devices are increasingly becoming technical jewels and highly sought-after design objects. More and more providers are opting for a remote control that tangibly underlines the design and lifestyle claim of their brand,” said Ferdinand Maier, Managing Director, ruwido. “ It is against this background that we decided to invest in research and development far beyond just the technical aspects, to create high quality, intelligent and individual designs that give customers an unmistakable excellent quality experience in addition to the intuitive use of functions. The remote control – despite its name, gets closer to the consumer than any other device in the entertainment electronics sector.”
The r97 platform comprises a full range of devices embracing different interaction methods, from full button layout to individualised access and six-key navigation. The keypad layout, material and finishing variation possibilities are nearly unlimited, resulting in the ability to offer straight forward , but still extremely attractive models, as well as sophisticated design and style icons designed to impress with the highest standards of technology, craftsmanship and material.
