At the heart of the connected living room is – what else – but the TV. It’s the gathering place for a family movie night, the mecca of Super Bowl Sunday and your one-stop shop to news and entertainment of all kinds. You can likely picture yourself – remote in hand, surfing through the guides to discover the right content. But, at Nuance, we’re thinking about (and very much already creating) the next-generation TV – beyond even HDTV and Internet connectivity capabilities – evolving to a truly connected TV experience.

Like with our Dragon TV platform, Nuance is creating electronics that talk to each other, that are smart and enable seamless and natural human interactions. Nuance’s Brian Fife, Head of Business Development for Dragon TV, has arrived at The TV of Tomorrow (TVoT) Show in San Francisco today to talk in-depth about the interfaces enabling such natural interactions with our technology, as powered by voice and gesture.

Brian will speak on a panel entitled “Natural User Interfaces” alongside co-panelists Crx Chai, Director of User Experience of  Open TV; Ron Croen, CEO of Volio; and Tim Tuttle, CEO of Expect Labs, among others, to explore the evolving user interfaces of the digital living room. From hands-free to voice control to hand-motion gesture control, these new interfaces will banish the days of scrolling through extensive remote control menus to find the game, or tedious remote-clicking to find your favorite nighttime sitcom.
