Accenture and KPN have developed a proof of concept using Google Glass and the Accenture Video Solution (AVS) for interactive television viewing, storage and control that has the potential to greatly enrich TV user experience.
The companies will demonstrate the proof of concept at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Using KPN's Interactive TV service, which is built on the Accenture Video Solution software platform and enables subscribers to watch TV on more devices, the companies will show how Google Glass integrates with the AVS platform to offer hands-free, voice-controlled interaction, and seamlessly shares TV content between the main TV screen and Google Glass.
The proof of concept was developed in collaboration with researchers at Accenture Technology Labs. While not yet developed as a commercial product, the companies are exploring the potential applications of wearable technologies for television viewers.
