CSR plc has collaborated with Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) to enable QuickSet setup and infrared technology on Bluetooth Smart-based remote controls. Remotes with integrated CSR1011 chipset and UEI's QuickSet tout long battery life and are compatible with entertainment products like DVD and Blu-ray players, cable boxes, stereo systems and other AV devices.

Selecting the QuickSet option in the CSR remote SDK allows end TV and set-top box suppliers to take advantage of UEI's device control database of entertainment devices, which gives users access to many of the control functions for virtually all digital entertainment electronics devices in the world.

QuickSet integration with CSR1011 means that OEMs can achieve a lower BOM, reduced complexity and engineering time, eliminating the need to purchase secondary IR blasters.

"Bluetooth Smart connectivity enables a growing ecosystem of devices interacting with TVs and set-top boxes, ranging from intelligent remote controls to smartphones and wearables," remarked Arsham Hatambeiki, Vice President, Corporate Product Strategy at UEI. "The native integration of QuickSet with the CSR1011 Bluetooth Smart chip enables automatic and seamless universal control of AV equipment as well as a range of new applications and accessories around the home while reducing the cost and time to market for smart remote controls."

UEI QuickSet is currently deployed in devices such as set-top boxes, connected TVs, DVD and Blu-ray players, game consoles, smartphones, and tablets on Linux, Windows, Android and iOS operating systems.
