DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Smart Media System

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Media System

INSPIRATION:
-

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Wirelessly streaming any media to any device that is connected to the network is unique in today's market. The Hub acts as a central gate and also has the ability to send a split data signal to the TV and the Smart Controller. Mandatory advertisements are sent to the Smart Controller periodically while your media continues on the TV. This allows the user to gain metadata from the advertisements creating a one of a kind interaction. The transforming Smart Controller is also unique in its ability to give the user multiple options for interaction along with the Camera and Charging Dock.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Smart Media System: Creating a seamless interaction between the users and their content, this ecosystem of products integrates media technology. The hub receives and sends data by using a home’s wireless network to one or more rooms via the camera module. It is easily accessed through the included smart remote control or by using an application from another device. This elegant solution provides simultaneous users the ability to view, play, or share their content. System Map: The system allows any media from any input to be streamed to any TV, computer, or other device on the hub network. This integrated system allows simultaneous users to access and share their content wirelessly within their network. Hub: The hub organizes all digital content wirelessly and is a platform for multitasking, data streaming, live broadcasting, video conferencing, and gaming. Connectivity: The “home hub” concept uses a central device to connect all inputs associated with home entertainment and networking such as video, audio, internet, and gaming hard lines. It seamlessly distributes them wirelessly to the entire home, allowing any input to be accessed by any networked device. The video and audio feeds are streamed wirelessly to a camera module. This module plugs into the TV and not only wirelessly sends and receives data, but also houses motion tracking cameras to provide for hands-free control of the system along with support for gaming. This network can be controlled by an application on a smart device or via the included touch screen remote control. Smart Controller: The controller allows the user to interact, customize, and multi-task with all of the devices that are connected to your hub. With the ability to have multiple controllers, the system can be accessed simultaneously by different users, each creating their own personalized experience. Touch screen for a universal remote interface, customizing system settings, browsing apps, surfing the net, and viewing channels for e-commerce. There is a sliding tactile keyboard for instant messaging, web browsing, and e-mailing. D-pad buttons for tactile gaming experience. Front and rear facing cameras for video chat. Kick stand for hands free viewing. Wireless multi-touch mouse function gives the users browsing options and comfort. Camera & Dock: The camera module sends and receives data between the hub, TV, and other camera modules within your house. It does this wirelessly to provide a seamless connection to all of the devices that are synced to your hub. In addition to the camera module, the charging dock will make sure that all of your controllers are always ready when you are. The module connects to the TV via hard line for power and data transfer. Then, it wirelessly relays that data while extending the home network and creating a WiFi hotspot. The camera module contains 3D motion-tracking cameras and voice recognition technology allowing hands free video conferencing and gaming. Included is an induction charging dock for the controller with an upright easy viewing position.
