The project SEDCMA is focussing on media and device assistance in the home environment. Assistance services are developed which help the user in media consuming and device control across multiple devices. Such services are built on top of basic technologies which provide functionalities like device communication and the adding of new services.


The project is split into two phases. In the first phase basic technologies are implemented as well as TV based widgets for the realization of user assistance. These widgets comprise TV program, telephony, white goods control and home network management services.

In the second phase the media assistance is extended by the implementation of a "Personal Media Recommender" and a "Personal Video Recorder". Also user access to assistance services is broaded from TV only to mobile devices (smart phones). Furthermore services are now provided by an application store from where the user installs applications on the home gateway in his home network.
