HOW KAMELEON™ WORKS
Kameleon™ allows wireless controllers to dynamically change their
appearance and functionality, to match the home entertainment
environment.Moreover, this technology provides unparalleled ease-of-use
and superior control by delivering a uniquely intuitive, graphical interface
that intelligently illuminates only the active keys.
The OFA Kameleon 8-Device Remote with RF uses Kameleon technology to
provide the versatility of an LCD remote control with the feel of a traditional
push button unit. The result is a stunning, bright display with engaging
animation and touch-sensitive graphics for the user.
The remote control includes convenient Menu Driven programming.The
displays are divided into two types of interactive screens: Device Menus for
normal remote control use, and Programming Menus for feature
setup.Acting like its namesake, Kameleon changes the Device Menu for the
device being selected. For example, selecting TV displays a main menu that
contains channel selection, volume control, and a keypad.However, selecting
a DVD player still displays a menu with those same keys as the TV, but now
navigation keys and transport controls are added for the DVD device.
Several devices have additional menus that can be accessed using SCROLL
(see Device Menu Screens, starting on page 56. For example, TV has three
menus: a main menu with keys for a general purpose TV, a second menu
screen that adds navigation keys and removes FORMAT, INPUT and ENTER
keys, and a third menu screen that adds INPUT, ENTER, and PIP keys.
Depending on desired features, a user has the flexibility to use any menu
screen that works best for the selected device.
NOTE: The CD, DVD, and PVR modes do not have additional menu
screens even though SCROLL is displayed.
Animated key graphics also provided enhanced operational feedback, so the
user can easily see what mode is active and when the commands are
communicating with a device. The end result of Kameleon technology is a
simple, elegant, and intelligent way of organizing a large number of remote
control keys for eight different devices in a relatively small case.
