Hughes Systique announces it has developed a proof of concept Telepresence application based on SIP for Digital TV sets and set-top boxes powered by the Android operating system. The HUGHES Telepresence application brings an immersive video conferencing solution to TV sets which allows participants to feel as though they are present in the same living room, even when located continents apart. This demonstrates the power of Android as a general embedded platform for consumer electronics and the connected home. Hughes has partnered with the company Home Jinni Inc., and has built this application as a plugin for the HomeJinni ConnecTV media center, the worlds first social media center and Connected TV framework for Android powered TV sets, Blu-ray players and set-top boxes.
