MarcLaunching today on Kickstarter you will find Skreens, a fantasic new system that will change the way you approach your entertainment system forever.
We had the pleasure of speaking with the brains behind the development of Skreens Marc Todd last night to get a sneak peak into what it was all about and what it could offer gamers and streamers alike.
Skreens is a revolutionary way to experience all of your entertainment. Your gaming console, cable box, Blu-Ray, Roku, PC, Apple TV and anything else you’re switching between — now all of it can come online at once, on one display and all absolutely at your control. So you can finish your work with the game on. Catch the top sports plays while checking in with your fantasy roster. Fire up a web browser without needing a computer. And never take your eyes off what matters most to you!
Skreens was created with the desire to give you a product that empowers you, to do what you have always wanted to do and didn’t know how, juggle multiple content streams, to be liberated and allow you to easily bring separate media sources like broadband, cable, satellite, streaming devices and gaming consoles together on a single customizable display!
Skreens is a platform with a sophisticated CPU and video processor capabilities that allows you to blend inputs from one, two or several HDMI sources, plus the Internet together into a single personalized screen. It allows you to create the television viewing experience that you need.
The possibilities are endless with Skreens. It creates the first truly smart TV experience. You choose how to spend your time and only watch what entertains you. Blend your content to suit you. Don’t find yourself choosing between streaming and chatting, watching the game or playing a game. Make yourself a better gamer by having all the tools you need one the screen, at one time when you’re competing: game, game guides, codes, videos and chat rooms! Be a more active sports fan as you can watch the game, check up on your fantasy roster and trash talk on Twitter! Watch the Oscars while browsing Pinterest… the possibilities are endless!
Skreens is powered by a new, proprietary and wildly powerful microchip: the Skreens Media Accelerator. Inside every one of our devices, this chip carries with it the horsepower to blend together almost unlimited high definition streams into a single interface — all in real time. So you get zero lag along with the ability to customize virtually any part of the interface to combine windows from different devices or the web. All of us are done with the tradeoffs, and we’re ready to have it all together.
Skreens supports audio on all inputs. The user can select the primary audio channel to transmit out the HDMI and optical S/PDIF outputs to your home audio system – all other audio outputs are available as streaming output via WiFi. You can stream audio channels to your iPhone or tablet to listen on your individual earbuds or headphones. Isn’t that awesome?!
