Ruwido launches voice control device

Remote control specialist Ruwido has launched a new device that offers voice control functionality.

Ruwido said the r117 device combines voice control with intuitive navigation. Speech is transmitted in HIVI quality, a high quality voice recognition standard, enabling users to search large content libraries.

“Voice technology is an incredible way to search for known content, such as films featuring a favourite actor, which can be accessed with only a few words. The user can say ‘George Clooney’, and this will be transferred to a cloud server, which will then present the different movie options that feature him as an actor. Speech must, however, be used in the right context,” said Ferdinand Maier. “For scrolling through 20,000 VOD titles, the physical element is essential, which is why the r117 is our most intuitive device yet. It provides a patented interaction mechanism technology to create navigation by emotion.”
