Masterclass: How to Build Amazing User Interfaces and Apps Using HTML5

The future TV landscape, and in particular 4K Ultra HD, is opening up a wealth of opportunities for user interface and applications development. The virtually unlimited canvas of 4K TV makes it a developer's dream that pushes HTML5 to its limits and makes it highly effective for the TV environment. How do you use all that space and organize the content? How can the consumer navigate and find what to watch? How do apps fit into the overall user experience? What new capabilities can be created thanks to the screen's sheer size and the use of HTML5?

In this Masterclass, presented by the NAGRA UEX Studio, the audience will get the answers to these questions and more, while learning about how to leverage the 4K TV screen to create a stunning UI that takes advantage of all that the screen has to offer. They will also learn about the challenges the team faced in creating the first model UI for 4K TV, Gravity Ultra, from both a design and technological standpoint, until it premiered at the 2013 IBC show in Amsterdam. The team has been working on their next iteration ever since!

The 4K Ultra HD User Interface and User Experience is not just about rescaling HD and tidying up tired old SD or HD interfaces, EPG's and pop-ups--it is about looking at the Ultra HD screen real estate, the resolution and big-screen format in a different way, in order to create a complementary and visually stunning "wow factor" that goes beyond Ultra HD video.

The underlying power of the format means that a user interface (UI) can incorporate features that have simply been impossible before, such as a wide range of social-TV applications like the "Buzz" app. "Buzz" harnesses the power of social media like Twitter, with "What's Trending" and Chat features, and combines with a mosaic of audiovisual content only possible on a 4K screen.

Attendees will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of how 4K will affect and impact the user experience. They will gain insight into how service providers and developers alike can make the most of the increased resolution and screen size to enable users to interact more naturally with the screen while providing an unparalleled and immersive viewing experience that blends together ease of search and navigation, social integration and all types of media that matter to the viewer. The Masterclass will be presented by:

--Isaac Chellin, User Experience Engineer, NAGRA UEX Studio
--Alex Fishman, Director of User Experience, NAGRA UEX Studio
