uICE enables complete control of your Windows system with handheld remote controls, standard and multimedia keyboards, wireless or wired. Use uICE to remote-control multimedia applications like Windows Media Player, Winamp/Sonique or other MP3 players, your favorite DVD/DivX video player like WinDVD or PowerDVD, TV viewers, or presentation software like Microsoft Powerpoint.
uICE is a versatile all-in-one interface between an input device and any kind of software application. Optimized for controlling a Windows PC from the distance, it provides On-Screen Displays and an On-Screen Menu similar to TV sets and DVD/VCR devices.
Its versatility in application and system control comes from its large collection of actions both for common Operating System procedures and application input simulation, especially its advanced and powerful PostMessage action and full support for Windows Script compliant macro scripting languages like JScript and VBScript.
In addition, uICE provides true multi-application remote control, which allows to define independent sets of remote control functions for each application.
The Play button can play videos, music, slide shows or whatever you like, depending on the currently selected application. The On-Screen Menu provides options to explore and open videos, music, pictures and other files directly from the harddisk or a home network/Intranet location, and timers to turn your computer off or wake it up from standby mode at a specific time.
The current version supports multimedia and standard keyboards as well as remotes from Hauppauge WinTV and similar TV cards, Soundblaster Live/Audigy/Extigy (RM-900/1000), ATI Remote Wonder, Packard Bell Fast Media, Logitech/IBM/AST/NEC, LIRC/WinLIRC, Realmagic Hollywood+ and many others.
