Beyond Smart TV: ‘Surfaces’ Prototype Reveals the Television of Tomorrow | Futurism, Ideas, Leadership in Business |

We’ve seen the future of television, and we want it now.


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.


It could be exactly what the TV industry needs to stay relevant.
