NTT - Multiscreen collaboration to realize resilient information sharing

To support evacuation centers without Internet access due to a disaster, our multiscreen collaboration realizes resilient information sharing that allows evacuees to share disaster information among devises with a HTML5 browser by connecting to a local Wi-Fi router and launching the browser. The demo system shares information among the centers through the movement of people.

NTT - Information division/cooperation technology applicable to HTML5

We propose a technology to divide/allocate web content elements among devices in accordance with user situation changes. The demo will show you how the elements are freely transferred among smartphones, tablet devices, and television sets when user situations are changed. Users can configure their systems in a "My Style" manner that suits their preferences and the devices they want to use.

Media Broadcast - Multithek

The HbbTV-based portal is shown as a separate channel on the TV set. Broadcast and IP contents are presented in a truly seamless way: by listing the portal and additional IP-based linear programs in the EPG. The user selects both broadcast and IP channels via the channel buttons on the remote. Navigation on the portal is based on the 5-button principle – guiding the user and offering OTT content without overloading.

  • Based on HbbTV standard
  • Unique access by selecting channel – portal opens automatically
  • IP-content in a seamless way
