Abstract

Home entertainment systems comprising multiple TV screens offer new opportunities to display more content, accommodate more viewers, and deliver enriched user experiences. In many cases, such installations take the form of mixed-reality environments, in which video projections coexist with physical TV sets. We refer to such installations as , due to their composite nature of hybridizing individual TV screens of different natures, form factors, and potential to render different multimedia types. This work discusses current implementations for interactive TV potpourris, identifies technical and interaction challenges, and pinpoints future research and development directions. It is our hope that this work will encourage new explorations and developments of TV potpourris.
