Title

The Magic Box: on a Hippie Trail From the Network to Wireless In-home Entertainment

Abstract

Technologies such as TiVo and Media Center have introduced the concept of Digital Video Recorder (DVR) in millions of homes [1], [2]. Consumers are now able to pause live-TV programs and watch them at their own convenience without the need of obsolete VCRs. These devices and their future evolution can be grouped into the class of Home Entertainment Centers (HECs). Specifically, a HEC can be defined as a hub for all in-home entertainment experiences able to handle heterogeneous media and to perform as a gateway between client devices located within the house and the outside world (i. e., the Internet).
