ruwido: remote controls to become revenue generators

Broadband World Forum Europe Exhibition
10 - 12 October 2006 at CNIT
La Défense, Paris, France
ruwido: stand # 9998

Paris, France -- With the markets seeing convergent digital technologies and business models reaching breakthrough, the upcoming competition between broadband and broadcast operators creates a new world of content choice and applications. This will consequently create the demand for a new generation of remote controls.
As the European leader in remote control technology, ruwido invites you to discover two groundbreaking platforms for remote controls, that were unveiled for the first time at IBC 2006: With VOCO and SLIMLINE, ruwido is pioneering the next trends in terms of intuitive usability, design and material aesthetics and manufacturing. VOCO, SLIMLINE as well as a selection of ruwido’s leading OEM solutions for Pay-TV and IPTV operators will be shown at Broadband World Forum Paris at the ruwido stand # 9998.

VOCO is the name of a modular technology platform that is able to incorporate features like SIM-Card, fingerprint identification, a microphone for voice communication and a camera for video communication – customisable to the demands and business models of any digital operator. VOCO technology can be integrated in an ambient way: in any input device such as remote controls or keyboards to make new content and services accessible for the subscriber. The fingerprint scanner replaces the need for entering PIN codes and makes parental control as easy and safe as shopping applications. The VOCO technology platform can create new possibilities for up-selling/cross-selling, enhancing subscriber loyalty and integrating applications like voice and even video telephony – predestining the remote control to become an important revenue generator.

SLIMLINE is the next generation of standard OEM remote controls by ruwido, designed to seamlessly integrate into living room life styles in terms of styling, quality feel, user experience and design trends: Slim, sleek, stylish and in-tune with consumer life style trends, SLIMLINE individually supports the brand of operators and manufacturers with its multitude of surface designs, materials and surface feels, from glossy black polycarbonate glass to iridescent ivory-tone and champagne-tone. As it is typical for ruwido, all SLIMLINE models come with that unmistakable quality feel and zero-percent failure rate, that ruwido is owing its unique position in the industry.
