While visiting with the folks at Imagination, responsible for the graphics system known as PowerVR found in many Apple and Samsung SoCs, we were shown a new, innovative way to watch TV.  This new system used an impressively quick graphic overlay, the ability to preview other channels before changing to them and even the ability to browse content on your phone and "toss" it to your TV.

The software infrastructure is part of the iFeelSmart package but the PowerVR team was demonstrating the performance and use experiences that its low power graphics system could provide for future applications.  And guess what we saw was connected to the TV?

With all of the information filtering out on Intel's upcoming dive into the TV ecosystem, it shouldn't be a surprise that find hardware like this floating around.  We aren't sure what kind of hardware Intel would actually end up using for the set top box expected later this year, but it is possible we are looking at an early development configuration right here.

Wonderful, PIP is back! I am surprise this hasn't been released sooner. What would be even better is if it, the rendering script for PIP and other feature, be customizable.

Reminds me of Cyviz, company that has been building similar controllers for many years. I enjoyed the support and custom scripts that was at my disposal. At the time, having one for home use came at not affordable costs. I am not aware of what they have today.
