During the demonstration, a team member showed how users can use an app to "pull" onscreen TV content on to a mobile device, which will switch off the streaming video simultaneously, and vice versa. However, the assistant professor said the exact details of this process cannot be detailed due to pending patent applications for the technology.
One of the team members initiates a text chat with another user. The system supports both text and video chat. Users can simultaneously video chat while the TV content is streaming at the backend.
The school is now in talks with a local telco and some foreign vendors to commercialize the technology.
The demonstration was supported by this setup which includes small servers to act as the cloud backend supporting media transcoding.
