The big focus at IBC for Motorola is the introduction of multi-screen TV management solutions, but that doesn’t mean hardware completely takes a back seat. In fact, Motorola introduced several new IPTV remote controls today, including a full-keyboard QWERTY remote! Check out the details and pics below. In addition to the keyboard remote, there’s the eco-friendly NYXgreen, and two mid-range units, including one with backlit buttons.
NYXboard: The NYXboard combines the traditional remote control form with a full keyboard to create a more intuitive navigational experience for sophisticated interactive TV services as well as traditional linear TV. Able to control both the set-top and television set, the NYXboard has sensors to recognise which side of the remote is being used in order to activate the buttons accordingly.
NYXgreen: The NYXgreen and dock is Motorola’s environmentally friendly RCU option. Eliminating traditional batteries, the RCU is powered by super capacitors, which can last for up to two weeks of use after charging via USB for just 60 seconds.
Also on show at IBC is the high quality mid-range M-TREM and the MRCU180-BL, which adds backlighting to the buttons on this already popular unit. Both the M-TREM and MRCU180-BL are available to ship today.
