More Connectivity and More in Control - 2012-2017 Report

Dublin, Sept. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
( has
announced the addition of the "Remote Controls - More Connectivity and More in
Control" report to their offering.

Remote controls traditionally have been an afterthought in the minds of most
consumers. However, that paradigm is quickly shifting as remote controls gain
better wireless connectivity to the devices they control. The various
applications enabled by using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and RF4CE are quickly changing
the way consumers think about remote controls and how they interact with their
entertainment devices.

Included in this report is an in-depth analysis of the various methods of
control including voice, motion, touchpad, gesture, and touchscreen control.
This report also looks at the increasing use of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and RF4CE in
remote controls and how that will impact the total market. A five year
forecast covering shipments of remote controls for the aftermarket &
universal, audio & video equipment, Blu-ray player, digital television, DVD
player, cable set-top box, IPTV set-top box, satellite set-top box, and
streaming media player markets subdivided by connectivity standard from 2012
to 2017 is provided.

The deliverable is comprised of a PDF and accompanying Excel data sheet.


The information contained in this report comes from both primary and secondary
sources. Primary research was conducted through direct interviews, over the
phone, or via email, with remote control manufacturers, wireless chipset
manufacturers, and device manufacturers. Interviews were conducted during the
first quarter of 2013. Companies interviewed for the report included Atmel,

Instruments, Universal Electronics, the Wi-Fi Alliance, and the Zigbee
