Smart-TV Interface for Media Broadcast

Prototype, 2013

Click, don't zap

Smart TV or hybrid TV have long been buzzwords in the media. Behind it lies the idea of the fusion of TV and Internet - a topic with many aspects, many possibilities, even more technical hurdles and an endless number of providers of different types. Media Broadcast, Europe's largest full-service provider for media content and platforms, is also developing services to enhance the television experience via antenna and cable (DVB-T and DVB-C).

Ultimately, data is simply transmitted via antenna and cable, so if the television is equipped with the appropriate technology, you are not limited to classic TV content.. Media Broadcast offers web-based services such as EPG, Shift TV (a video recorder in the network), Video On Demand and other cloud services via the TV screen.

The task of wysiwyg* was to create a compact offer together with the customer and, based on this, to create a user-friendly interface for this relatively new media access. As this service is to be accessed via TV remote control and loading times similar to those of a 56k modem can be assumed, clarity and simplicity were mandatory. Everything can be achieved by simple chessboard maneuvers (up-down-right-left), visually clear and providing orientation. With this solution, Media Broadcast has taken a promising first step into this segment.
