Testing consumer electronics with standalone or network-based RedRat products
RedRat products are widely used to test and commission consumer electronics equipment. Using a RedRat3 or an iRNetBox, you can replicate remote control usage for different products such as home security, home entertainment, or home automation systems.
Consumer electronics testing applications
• Setting up and recording remote control signal sequences
• Integrating remote control sequence outputs with current test systems
• Using TestManager to create and manage test scripts
RedRat devices and associated applications have been integrated seamlessly with a number of third-party consumer device testing products including:
An automated Set-top Box (STB) test and analysis system that removes the need for time-consuming, expensive and error-prone manual testing and replaces it with a more accurate and cost-effective alternative.
An open-source system for automated black-box testing of Set-top Boxes and similar consumer electronics devices.
If you are looking to incorporate infrared remote control functionality into a product or system, then we would be pleased to discuss how we can help. Our input could be as simple as giving some advice or consultancy, or perhaps licensing some RedRat IP could accelerate your project. If you need actual hardware but our off-the-shelf products are not suitable, then we are able develop custom, project specific hardware and software.
PC Based Multimedia
Advances in DTV transmission and home cinema systems have transformed our viewing habits and we are no longer limited to conventional TVs to watch our favourite programmes.
However, watching TV on a PC or laptop involves using mouse and keyboard, resulting in a “sit-forward” experience rather than the more comfortable “sit-back” viewing we’ve grown accustomed to.
A RedRat3, combined with our RedRat Control software allows you to operate your PC with a remote control instead of a keyboard and mouse. (Note: We do not provide the remote control itself, but most standard remote controls should work with this setup.)
