Beyond Smart TV: ‘Surfaces’ Prototype Reveals the Television of Tomorrow

Beyond Smart TV: ‘Surfaces’ Prototype Reveals the Television of Tomorrow | General News of Different Topics | Scoop.it

NDS, a company that develops DRM security and DVR technology for pay-TV providers like Cox and DirecTV, has developed a proof-of-concept called Surfaces that shows how television could become the center of a much more compelling, immersive living room experience.

The prototype jettisons the single, static screen that’s been a hardware mainstay since the golden age of television. In its place is a slick, highly customized room-sized desktop that hosts not only a traditional widescreen TV image, but also windows for a plethora of digital accoutrements.
