Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), a world leading manufacturer of home automation and smart control solutions, has recently announced that they have developed a new driver for IP control of select 2017 Samsung TVs and 2018 Samsung 4K UHD TVs.
Products for which the driver delivers that IP Control encompass the NU8 Series, the entire QLED series and The Frame TV series of products from tech giants Samsung.
As part of the announcement of the driver, RTI took pains to point out that by utilising a network connection, the new driver simplifies the integration of Samsung TVs into RTI automation and control systems to provide consumers with a full-featured control experience.
The new driver is able to provide direct, one-button access to streaming sources such as Hulu and Netflix on the displays, as well as offering control over the DTV tuner and on-board DirecTV interface of Samsung 4K Ultra HDTVs.
Owners of one of the compatible Samsung TVs will be able to control it using the RTI interface of their choice, where they can view feedback on volume levels, programming, and more. Mike Everett, vice president of global sales and marketing with RTI, explained the benefit which this delivers to users:
‘Samsung displays are some of the most popular on the market, and we couldn’t be more excited to make it simple for integrators to incorporate them into their customers’ RTI systems…The driver eliminates the need for an IR emitter and provides the highest degree of control for users, including direct access to streaming services.’
