What is CEC (Consumer Electronic Control)

One of the biggest challenges of technological evolution is creating intelligent devices that can communicate with each other. The CEC technology brings us one step closer to the dream. CE (Consumer Electronic) devices can automatically configure themselves and correct errors without user intervention. Using the HDMI framework, CEC takes user experience to a whole new level. For example, you can connect your camcoder with your CEC – enabled HDTV and the TV will automatically detect the device and display it on the screen. You can now control your camcoder with your CEC – enabled HDTV. Same goes for DVD players and set –top boxes; you don’t need to switch remotes when you use different devices. Unlioke DLNA, interoperability is an issue here. You can control devivces only if they have the same manufacturer.
