From One to Many Boxes: Mobile Devices as Primary and Secondary Screens

P. Cesar, H. Knoche, D.C.A. Bulterman

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


This chapter looks at the current changing habits on audiovisual content
consumption at home, with special focus on potential uses of mobile devices.
Standard television plus a remote control impose a use that is too coarse to support
the various personal needs of people, while mobile devices open new possibilities
from engagement and immersion into content and deliberately controlled disengagement with others to providing a screen that can be offered to include others in sharing experiences in a huddled setting.
