Abstract

Television has no longer the same effect on viewers as it had decades ago. The time that was formerly spent watching “traditional” television is now shared with or replaced by mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. When using these devices, the viewer has the opportunity to further interact with the content that is provided to him, as well as with remote friends. The work presented in this paper explores new concepts of interaction in television contexts, which comprises the integration of augmented reality (AR) techniques with television shows to enhance the viewer’s experience, allowing them to access additional information about the content they are watching and to create their own content to share with their friends. This paper describes the developed prototype and the corresponding preliminary user evaluation with promising results.
