Why do digital TV interfaces all look the same?December 24th, 2008 by Ben
A recent post on Contentinople by R. Scott Raynovich notes, “Nearly everybody on the panel zeroed in on the consumer interface,” pointing to the poor quality of current digital TV interfaces. This could be seen as rather embarrassing: the entertainment industry hasn’t yet invented a disruptive interface for content selection. My perception is that for the past decade and more, experts have focused on improving the UI by changing the layout, colors, navigation, buttons and all the other objects on the screen (TV or PC).
After so many attempts and so many UI concepts, one might come to the conclusion that the key to improving consumer experience is not in layout or graphics, but rather in the underlying data that shapes and limits the UI.
