About RedRat

RedRat Ltd is a private limited company that was founded by Dr. Chris Dodge in 2002 following significant interest in his PC-based devices developed to control consumer electronics equipment. He was awarded UK Government funding to further develop IR technology and the first commercial RedRat was born.

The original RedRat was a small device that connected to a standalone PC to provide infrared remote control input/output capabilities. While this is still a popular product, we have since extended the initial concept to develop networked devices and associated applications for use in multiple markets, including broadcast and digital TV, consumer electronics, assistive technology and PC-based multimedia.

Since our founding we have worked with more than 300 customers across the consumer electronics, broadcast, home automation and assistive technology industries in over 40 countries worldwide. We are regarded as a leading developer of PC-powered remote control technology and we have established partnerships with many internationally recognised brands including the BBC, DirecTV, Comcast and Samsung. Please take a look at some of the organisations that use RedRat systems.
