Ericsson has debuted the latest version of its IPTV Remote, which was inspired by a consumer study conducted by the Ericsson Consumer Lab.

According to the research, the use of new touch screen devices like the IPTV Remote matches consumer desire to more flexibly interact with content in their homes. The IPTV Remote can be used as a secondary TV screen and can also function as a portable TV in a WiFi-enabled home. The interface is based on Ericsson’s new patented graphical user interface.

The Ericsson IPTV Remote includes a touch screen so that the consumer can intuitively browse different sources of media, as well as preview and organize playlists. Once a decision has been made, a program can be started on the main TV screen with a single touch. While one person is browsing, other viewers can watch the main TV screen and their selected program is undisturbed.

The Ericsson IPTV Remote can act as the interface for other home oriented services offered by the service provider such as power consumption or health care. The interface and applications are based on the latest Web technologies and the applications include advanced media handling functions to allow superior user experience.
