Sandberg now introduces a remote control with full keyboard and mouse function.
Technology has long since made its entry in the living room. As well as lots of television channels, we have achieved far more autonomy in our living rooms. We can watch television on demand, use streaming services such as Netflix, HBO, and Viaplay and we can find all kinds of interesting things on YouTube and other Internet locations.
All very easy. If the television set is not a Smart-TV, just hook up the laptop, a gaming console or some other unit to connect the TV with Internet content.
It all becomes rather impractical when having to type the name of the movie or navigate a cursor on screen with a standard remote control.
This is why Sandberg is now launching StreamBoard, a somewhat unusual remote control. Instead of the usual remote control buttons, StreamBoard features a complete keyboard and a touchpad. With StreamBoard, typing in Internet addresses, access codes, and movie titles is quick as a flash, and suddenly using the television set as an Internet browser makes sense.
StreamBoard is identified by the device as a standard HID via a small USB receiver, included in the package. This means that the console, TV or computer does not require Bluetooth or the installation of a driver. If you can use a standard USB keyboard and mouse on the device, you can use StreamBoard.
StreamBoard is already on its way to the stores. You can find your nearest dealer at www.sandberg.it.
