A new product is to be added to the RedRat product portfolio later this year. The RedRat X , a USB/Network device that enables individuals or system operators to generate remote control commands using a PC or laptop.
Other new features include a high powered IR blaster with controllable IR output power, additional IR output ports for plug-in IR emitters and feedback via multicolour LEDs. The new device can also be used in conjunction with our recently developed RF modules (currently supporting RF4CE or Bluetooth) to facilitate mixed infrared and RF control in testing environments with heterogeneous banks of equipment.
“RedRat-X will allow our existing customers to migrate to RF-based testing environments as more and more devices include RF technology as standard. The TV industry remains in a state of flux as far as the development of low power radio communication is concerned with no common patterns emerging for RF technology, so our products can effectively deliver the linking piece of hardware needed to communicate with multiple STBs using different types of protocol.”
The design of the product will feature the new company logo and a sleek modern look, you can see a prototype of the latest addition to the RedRat family below.
