Hisense announced a strategic partnership by which it will deploy Hillcrest’s patented Freespace in-air pointing and motion control software in its next-generation of Smart TVs and Pulse set-top boxes.
Freespace enables point-and-click, gesture and motion control of Smart TV devices through simple in-air movements of a handheld remote control. This allows users to navigate their TV user interface just like they do on computers, smartphones and tablets.
Hisense is the fifth largest television manufacturer in the world. Hisense’s Freespace-enabled products will be available in the US, China, and other markets later this year.
