Augmented Broadcasting Technology For Next Generation Smart TV

The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute had a really interesting display in the NAB Futures Park on taking the Smart TV to the next level. Using existing broadcast technology metadata, their technology allows users to select a preferred augmented content provider – second screen, smart toy interaction, etc enabling users to control the service using a tablet or smart phone.  This might allow interactive distance education over broadcast television and has many applications for infotainment.
