CSR has partnered with Lenovo to make its new S9 and S52 Smart TVs, the first TVs with fully featured Bluetooth Smart remote controls. The remotes, which are currently available in China, use low power and also have increased responsiveness, and make controlling TV content a much more user-friendly experience.
Advancing the forms of control in line with advances in television content, the remote, powered by the CSR1011, part of the CSR µEnergy range, and CSR8510 platforms, enables consumers to take advantage of voice control, as well as easily adding motion navigation and gesture recognition functionality. The end-to-end solution allows users to more easily navigate content, browse the web and play games on their Lenovo Smart TVs.
“CSR’s flexible Bluetooth Smart platforms ensure our customers can interact with their TVs in new and improved ways such as via voice recognition or gesture communication,” explains Qi Wei, Executive Director, R&D, Smart TV BU at Lenovo. “CSR’s end-to-end solution was easy to integrate and made our journey to market faster. It also offers the functionality that a modern smart TV remote demands and performs better in both responsiveness and current consumption than other more power-hungry technologies such as Wi-Fi.”
