CEO of Lagotek Eugene Luskin stated, "We clearly see the market moving toward merging home control technology with Home Theater and Entertainment. Our customers and partners asked that we integrate the two in one Home Intelligence Platform. We delivered the solution they asked for in version 3.1 of Lagotek's HIP, and the market response to date is extremely positive."
Lagotek HIP version 3.1 supports Global Cache GC-100 Network adapters for customers who want to control their current audio and video equipment using Lagotek's HIP. GC-100 can be used to control multiple IR (Infrared) audio and video devices. Lagotek's HIP IR application provides users with the ability to configure their existing equipment and Entertainment activities, so they can turn on your TV, switch it to the desired input, turn on the amplifier and switch to the channel with one touch of a button. For the devices that are not supported in the existing IR database, Lagotek HIP provides IR learning capabilities, so customers can integrate any device of their choice.
