Pelikon power

Pelikon, the Cardiff-based manufacturer of printed segmented electroluminescent (pSEL™) displays, is the driving force behind the new Kameleon III range of universal remote controls, created by One For All®. Pelikon's pSEL™ flexible display and driver technology is integral to this new range of products, which are some of the world's slimmest battery-operated universal remote controls.
The Kameleon III range comprises of the Kameleon 5, Kameleon 8 and Kameleon 11 products. Respectively, these universal remote controls can operate 5, 8 and 11 devices within the home, ranging from a DVD through to home lighting (additional One For All® products are required for lighting operation). The ultra slim remote, complete with attractive touch screen display, intuitively shows only the controls relevant to a particular operation. This removes much of the confusion and complication associated with multi-function remote controls.
Pelikon's pSEL™ Intuitive Touch Displays, incorporating printed segmented electroluminescence (pSEL™), are used to create the remote control's eye-catching, intuitive, segmented touch screen displays. Pelikon driver electronics have been developed to optimise the performance of all pSEL™ displays enabling displays to look great and last longer.
By implementing pSEL™, One For All® is able to make use of a vastly simplified, colourful interface, made relevant to usage or function. The flexible display can convey complex information clearly using nested menus to guide the user through their interaction with a product, only displaying the relevant detail at each stage of the process.
"Everyone has far too many remote controls, the One For All® Kameleon III remote controls aim to tackle this problem by offering a streamlined, simplified way of controlling home entertainment equipment," said Mike Powell, CEO, Pelikon. "This is the third generation of products we have worked on with One For All®, and they are all a prime example of how Pelikon's pSEL™ Intuitive Touch Display and drivers can create intelligent consumer electronic devices. A combination of eye catching, intuitive display technology and cutting edge design has resulted in Kameleon III."
