Abstract

One of the goals of future TV broadcast services is to provide realistic media contents to the users. The user's sense of reality can be reinforced by adding to conventional media multiple sensorial effects, through five-sense stimulus (i.e., taste, sight, touch, smell, and hearing). In a smart home environment, to deliver the additional effects, customary devices (e.g., air conditioning, lights, etc.), provided of opportune smart features, have to be preferred to ad-hoc devices, often deployed in other applications as for example in gaming systems. In this context, a key issue is the interconnection among the TV and the customary devices that deliver the additional sensorial effects to the user. In such a framework, home customary devices play a role to implement additional effects to the conventional broadcast TV service. In this study, a prototype is implemented for broadcasting multi sensorial media in a real smart home scenario. Real customary devices are deployed. A subjective test measurement campaign based on mean opinion score was performed to assess the Quality of Experience of the users and the feasibility of the proposed multi sensorial media TV service.
