Device knowledge to improve device recognition.
Our global device knowledge graph provides structured and detailed information about devices, their capabilities and services they offer as well as the relationships among them. Every device within the home has a set of device properties such as their brand name, model number, series number, manufacturer, current capabilities and offerings, their physical and software characteristics, compatible devices, region information, and much more. This extensive range of information for nearly every audio-video device in the world is contained in QuickSet’s device knowledge graph. QuickSet® leverages this knowledge graph, to serve up a full range of capabilities for a device. Beyond control, this knowledge graph also adds the much-needed context to all user commands and actions, making dynamic capability discovery of nearby devices possible.
Device knowledge to improve device recognition
QuickSet® relies on algorithms that utilize the knowledge graph of devices with varying control capabilities, communication interfaces and protocols, each identifiable with unique fingerprints. Device recognition is done by fingerprinting available mediums such as HDMI video networks, IP networks such as WiFi, and Zigbee rf4ce networks. Discovery is further expanded to additional device attributes that include metadata traits such as installed apps, compatible mobile apps, audio and video capabilities, device compatibilities, screen characteristics (size, image resolution..), region and age, manufacturing year and more. Leveraging UEI's expertise in consumer electronics in the last 35+ years , QuickSet's Device Knowledge Graph contains not only current devices in the market, but current installed base in the home. Covering nearly any device, new or old.
QuickSet® leverages the knowledge graph to go beyond a single protocol approach and identifies the optimal control method or methods for achieving the desired control across multiple interfaces. This hybrid control of devices, drastically increases compatibility with the current installed base. The common control methods include infrared (including discrete infrared), protocols and features available on HDMI video networks, IP networks such as WiFi, and Zigbee rf4ce networks When it comes to infrared control, our device knowledge graph contains the largest set of infrared control codes.
