UEI will continue to provide VIZIO with innovative control solutions for the newest line of plasma and LCD HDTVs due out in early 2007. These new remotes will be equipped with UEI’s unparalleled device code database for universal compatibility, as well as unique patented technologies including enhanced features such as a direct set, one-touch macro and innovative backlighting technology. UEI’s highly experienced design team worked closely with VIZIO to develop a stylish and functional design to control the new 60 inch line of VIZIO HDTV plasma televisions.

“We are pleased to extend our relationship with Universal Electronics to develop universal remote controls for our newest line of televisions,” said William Wang, CEO of VIZIO. “UEI continues to be a strong partner for VIZIO by maintaining a combination of cost-effective designs and innovation with a consistent high quality. As we expand the market for high quality/best value HDTVs, well engineered control systems that make the user experience better are becoming ever-more important,” Wang concluded.
