Abstract or Description

This paper describes MyInfo, a novel interface for a personal news demonstrator that processes and combines content from TV and the web. We detail our design process from concept generation to focus group exploration to final design. Our design focuses on three issues: (i) ease-of-use, (ii) video summarization, and (iii) news personalization. With a single button press on the remote control, users access specific topics such as weather or traffic. In addition, users can play back personalized news content as a TV show, leaving themselves free to complete other tasks in their homes, while consuming the news.
