Abstract
In this demonstration we show how a cross-platform web technology based application framework on top of a secure communication infrastructure may be used to enhance media consumption. By illustrating the access to data and functionality across a user's disparate personal devices, each consolidated within a personal zone, we argue that novel use cases are feasible and viable with lowered development costs. In particular, we utilize a set of defined application programming interfaces to control television sets and use smartphones to provide and render media content within an overlay network. As controlling televisions or using their data is rather unknown in web applications we try to unveil the potential for many scenarios comprising these connected devices.
