One touch does it all

Interlink Electronics and PowerTV have hooked up at the Western Show, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1, to demo Interlinks IntuiTouch broadband remote interface technologies - in other words, a new breed of remote control.

The technology features a pad centric user interface that enables one touch programming control for guides and on-screen menus, gesture control of entertainment devices and text entry without a keyboard.

"The role of the living room remote control is evolving," said Ray Pearson, vice president of Interlink sales and marketing, in a statement. "It is no longer enough for home remotes to simply control entertainment appliances. To be truly useful, they must enable and actually help drive the development of new applications and services."

The demos of the IntuiTouch remote control will use the S-A Explorer 2000 set-top, and run the PowerTV OS software. Stop by either PowerTV's booth 3831 or Interlink's booth 2010 to see the demos.
