Digeo Inc. has tuned into Universal Electronics Inc.’s remote controller for
its "Moxi Media Center."
Under a development deal struck between the two vendors, UEI will supply
Digeo with a universal remote control allowing users to store, manage and share
content stored in their Moxi multimedia systems.
UEI’s remote was chosen due to its ease of use, according to Peter
Kellogg-Smith, Digeo’s vice president of marketing and programming,
"UEI's technologies complement our Moxi service offering perfectly by
delivering unparalleled ease of use and functionality," he said. "In fact, our
consumer usability testing indicated that the UEI remote control was favored
over all others."
The remote will find its first use in a planned rollout with Charter
Communications Inc. set to begin at the end of this year.
