Universal Remote Console Applications Demonstrated
The Trace Center’s work on pluggable remote control user interfaces through the Universal Remote Console (URC) framework has resulted in a new series of demo applications. Short videos are now available to demonstrate how each application could be used to remotely control a home entertainment center with digital media such as music, video and photos. PlayIt is a small Flash application running on a PDA; DragIt is a Web 2.0 application for Web browsers on PCs; and PickIt is a simple, task-oriented application running on Windows Mobile-based smartphones and PDAs. These applications were first demonstrated at the International Consumer Electronics Show in January 2007.
