   "Peert": video content distribution platform  
 

Recently, Philips Applied Technologies commenced a research into developing a virtual television station/channels system on the Internet. This system would be a peer-to-peer distribution platform where multiple content partners could provide their video content on-line.

My contribution to the project was to investigate the user-system interaction of and to design a GUI for "Peert" system as described above.

Objectives:
creating the strategy and designing installation, registration, and set up procedure for downloading the application
developing use case scenarios for content selection from application browser, electronic content guide (ECG), and downloading procedure
ease-of-use of playing the downloaded content and visualizing the download progress of the different content items
create/research a complimentary interface that is suitable for set-top box application (as a part of Philips Connected planet vision). This UI should correspond to the 'look-and-feel' of the web application

Project status: in progress
Duration: nine months
Team members: K.Baker, P.Hulsen, E.Vlemmix
