Musings of a PC

Thoughts about Windows, TV and technology in general

‘Canvas will be a game changer’

"BBC director of future, media and technology Erik Huggers has said that IPTV venture Project Canvas will be a ‘game changer’ in the TV industry."
I’ve been following the public information about Project Canvas with interest and it is exciting to read some of the comments made recently by Erik Huggers.
"Much more than TV and access to the internet – [it’s about] about allowing developers to build apps to reach users. The beauty is that it’s all based on internet technology standards."
The Guardian has also written a piece about the presentation made at the FutureMedia conference. This includes video taken of a demonstration of what the user interface might look like on Canvas. The audio is, unforunately, very quiet.
I only hope that Microsoft are getting involved and doing whatever needs to be done to ensure that Windows Media Center is capable of particiating as a "Canvas" device.
