Comcast deploys Universal Electronics’ QuickSet Cloud

December 9, 2016

Universal Electronics, a specialist in universal control and sensing technologies for the smart home, has announced that Comcast is the first service provider to deploy QuickSet Cloud.

This unique software addition is now integrated with Comcast’s X1 Entertainment Operating System enabling an effortless, automated set up experience for the X1 Voice Remote.  Universal Electronics’ QuickSet Cloud offers a complete database to ensure that nearly all consumer entertainment devices can be automatically recognised and controlled with a software handshake.

“What excites us about this feature is that it brings our customers closer to the experiences they love. Instead of fumbling with remote codes and instructions, they can just unbox a new remote and start discovering great content right away,” says Jonathan Palmatier, vice president, product development and consumer devices at Comcast Cable. “Universal Electronics is an innovator in this space and consistently develops technology that helps us deliver world-class experiences to customers.”
