Comcast Deploys Quickset Cloud
SANTA ANA, Calif. -- Universal Electronics Inc. (NASDAQ:UEIC), the worldwide leader in universal control and sensing technologies for the smart home, today announced that Comcast is the first service provider to deploy QuickSet Cloud.
This unique software addition is now integrated with Comcast’s innovative X1 Entertainment Operating System enabling an effortless, automated set up experience for the groundbreaking X1 Voice Remote.
Universal Electronics’ QuickSet Cloud offers the most complete database to ensure that nearly all consumer entertainment devices can be automatically recognized and controlled with a software handshake. This solves one of the biggest challenges consumers face when accessing newly installed home entertainment devices for the first time.
Unlike previous versions of QuickSet, which require integration of embedded software in a set-top box or other device, QuickSet Cloud is accessed by X1 through simple Web APIs, speeding implementation of the application and utilizing real-time access to services.
