A German university developed a novel system that allows the user access media or home equipment from any location in the world where an internet connection is available. The system supports almost any number of clients and can be integrated e.g. in set-top-boxes to support clients for PCs or mobiles. The system can be offered to companies producing Set-Top-Boxes or Home-Automation systems and the Professor is looking for license and technical cooperation agreements.
A Professor at German university invented a system which is a novel network service that allows the implementation of services for the so called ”Extended Home”. The system allows a large scalability of the overall service and targets the TV screen as the major user interface within the home. Mobile phone and PCs as controls are connected to such a network. The system allows a seamless connection from the mobile user to his TV set or household equipment (washing machines) within the home from any place in the world.
Today´s digital media technologies allows to record and store large amounts of TV contents and other forms of audio/video streams. A few years ago this way was only possible for technical experts using a digital video broadcasting (DVB) receiver card plugged into a PC. With the introduction of affordable personal video recorder (PVR) systems into the market it became possible that all private users can collect huge amounts of audio/video information at home for a time-independent access to this content.
As these systems become more and more available, users want to access their private content not only within the home but also on the go, i.e. from anywhere where a fixed or mobile Internet connection is available. Thus, this Extended Home will allow users to access their media information as if they were at home.
Regarding this innovative system the Professor is looking for license agreements to implement it and technical cooperation agreements to share technical know how.
The system provides a safe, quick and mobile connection to one server system which offers opportunities and service like TV-related services, programming of TV-Programmes, telemaintenance (display and adjustment of Set-Top-Boxes), Media-Streaming, remote control of equipment within the home network such as washing machine, dish washer, blinds, heating installation or lighting installation and access to TeleCare application for home attendance
Type of partner sought are SME and Industry. The specific area of activity should be programming or developing set-top-boxes.
Tasks to be performed are adjusting or developing this technology to specific needs.
