TouchSquid entered strategic partnership with Global Cache

Nov. 3, 2011 We are proud to announce our strategic partnership agreement with Global Caché, a leading provider of connectivity products.  The agreement provides a platform for co-marketing and product compatibility. An Android tablet can be used as a universal home theater remote control using a combination of TouchSquid’s remote control app and a Global Caché iTach infrared device.

The Global Caché iTach is a family of products designed to connect almost any electrical device to a network in a matter of minutes. Based on open systems and industry standards, the ultra-compact device fits almost anywhere (even the palm of your hand), and includes a choice of wireless (WiFi) or wired (TCP/IP) connectivity to infrared (IR), serial (RS232), and contact closure (relay) equipment.

The new TouchSquid app for generic android tablets shows the company's dedication as solution developer in the home theatre remote control industry. The TouchSquid TV remote control tablet, our flagship product is an all-in-one remote control/tablet computer, but the generic TouchSquid App can turn virtually any Android tablet with an iTach from Global Caché into a fully featured, high end home theater remote control with large, easy to read virtual buttons, intuitive user interface, and customizable screens. The TouchSquid app  includes an extensive library of supported devices (growing all the time), and an internet connected tablet can be used to browse TV listings and reviews.

By having the ability to store multiple profiles, using activity based button layouts with automatic input switching, and providing a quick, easy way to get back on track when devices are out of sync (in the form of the Squid help button), the TouchSquid App eliminates a number of common “remote control headaches” and enhances a viewer’s home theater experience.

Beyond simply adding remote control functionality to Android devices (tablets and full screen smart phones), an iTach from Global Caché can eliminate the need for line of sight visibility of devices being controlled by TouchSquid’s all-in-one device, allowing devices to be hidden in a cabinet or a separate room.


Coupled with an iTach from Global Caché, this App will run on the Amazon Kindle Fire, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and many other generic Android tablets.
