July 30, 2015

Universal Electronics, the global player in universal remote control technologies and control interfaces, announced that it has reached a new milestone with its QuickSet solution, having shipped the platform in more than 150 million devices around the world.  This milestone represents a tremendous growth reaching over 10 million users per month. With EchoStar and DISH, DirecTV, Microsoft Xbox, and many other video service operators all shipping QuickSet on their video delivery platforms, QuickSet has become a widely adopted connectivity solution for entertainment worldwide.

Quickset is Universal Electronics’ software and web service that empowers seamless connection and control throughout the home entertainment ecosystem. Embedded in a plethora of devices, including set-top boxes, connected TVs, media devices, game consoles, smartphones and tablets, QuickSet enables a growing list of popular smart devices and other electronics to effortlessly control the entire home entertainment experience.

Lou Hughes, Executive Vice President-Americas at UEI understands the importance of the user experience to the subscription broadcast market in North and South America. “The beauty of this solution is that the remote sets up automatically.  No more entering IR device codes on the remote or searching for them on the Internet or testing codes to see what works.  You connect the service provider set-top box to the TV and it just works.”
