Universal Remote Console Standards in Final Committee Draft

May 4th, 2006

A Universal Remote Console (URC) draft standard has been submitted to ISO/IEC JTC1 SC35 for final committee draft voting. If this vote is successful, the draft standard will then be passed on to JTC1 for final voting and publication as an ISO/IEC International Standard. The URC standard will allow users to operate compliant devices with a variety of URC products, any one of them being tailored to the user’s needs and preferences. The Trace Center has been a major contributor to this standard from its inception, with Gottfried Zimmermann serving as editor of the standard and Gregg Vanderheiden co-chairing INCITS V2 (the U.S. mirror group to SC35).
