New technology can 'pull' a show on TV onto tablet
IndianExpress.comreports that a scientist from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has developed an innovative multi-screen mobile social television experience called the ‘Social Cloud TV’.
The system allows you to watch TV programs and online videos with your family and friends at the same time. The system leverages a cloud backend for media processing, such that the same video can be streamed into devices in the most suitable format.
When viewing a TV show or perhaps a live soccer match, you can invite family and friends to join your session, from either your phone book or social networking contact lists.
