Digital television broadcaster Video Networks unveils ‘minimote’

Digital television broadcaster Video Networks has unveiled the ‘minimote’, a remote control especially designed for children. The unit, which works in conjunction with the company’s HomeChoice TV platform, was devised by creative director Marco Giusti, head of the in-house design team at Video Networks. ‘As far as I’m aware, this is the first remote control for kids in Europe,’ says Giusti. The HomeChoice set-top box recognises the minimote and automatically filters non-children’s channels from the selection. A pictorial version of the service’s electronic programme guide is now being developed to work with the control.
