RedRat Ltd is a private limited company that was founded by Dr. Chris Dodge in 1994 following significant interest in his PC-based devices developed to control consumer electronics equipment. He was awarded UK Government funding to further develop IR technology and the first commercial RedRat was born.
The original RedRat was a small device that connected to a standalone PC to provide infrared remote control input/output capabilities. While this is still a popular product, we have since extended the initial concept to develop networked devices and associated applications for use in multiple markets, including broadcast and digital TV, consumer electronics, assistive technology and PC-based multimedia. – less
