The pillow speaker on a RoomMate TV or HCI HUB is the starting point for the end user’s interaction with the device. This is connected to HCI’s very own custom pillow speaker board which interfaces with all android devices. By using our pillow speaker board HCI’s products can be customized to fit into any legacy atmosphere and still bring the current and future Android technology.
Taking heavy influences from Android’s philosophy of wide compatibility, we created HCI’s pillow speaker board with the ability to bind any Android function to any pillow speaker key. Additionally, it supports all legacy, current, and future key additions to the main pillow speaker types. No matter what the facilities setup, buttons can be remapped with a simple click of the pillow speaker button, to any Android function that isn’t native to existing pillow speakers. This feature can then be cloned to all other devices in the facility, allowing for an optimized Android experience for the user.
Because the pillow speaker board is completely integrated with the device, it updates automatically at the same time as the device. This means that customers no longer need to break out special hardware tools just to upgrade a separate part of the TV. Additionally, if it is connected with MediaCARE, you only need an internet browser to completely update the device.
HCI’s pillow speaker board doesn’t stop at just user control; through the implementation of its RJ-12 port, our devices can be controlled by any number of third-party controllers. These controllers can help to automate different built-in features on the device such as recognizing an AV signal and automatically switching to that source. In the case of the HCI HUB, the pillow speaker board ensures the HUB can also be the controlling device for many common TVs such as Samsung, LG, and all HCI’s models.
