Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
There's a distinct trend showing in the community. The numbers of users of smartphones/tablets and IPTV services are increasing. Choosing a smartphone is quite natural when it comes to upgrading or buying a new mobile phone. IPTV is the new and modern way of providing TV transmissions. The transissions are equipped with certain extra features, such as applications. The applications are explicitly controlled by the TV remote. The purpose of this thesis project is to investigate on how to enrich the interaction between the user and the application, by introducing the smartphone as a replacement of the remote.
The possibility to create the interaction was conducted by investigating existing applications and the technologies available at the applications and smartphones/tablets. Through an explorative and iteratve process, prototypes have been developed in order to support the theories and evaluate the possible solutions. The prototypes have been communicating with the IPTV applications through a server, which was also prototyped. The result of the project is a set of recommendations on how to proceed with the development, function libraries for iOS, Android and IPTV appplications and also a server environment for supporting the communication.
