This powerful new feature allows users to connect directly to Samsung Tizen displays from within the Player record and control the screens settings with the IR Remote Control emulator as if you are actually there in person in front of the screen, regardless of where you are in the world. Furthermore our EngagePHD App doesn’t need to be running on the display to achieve this.
