Sharp's SmartCentral platform needed an update to compete in a category that was quickly evolving.
What is a “smart” TV? Where most smart TV platforms revolved around apps, RKS redesigned the SmartCentral platform with a focus on content. The goal was to get people to the TV shows and movies they love, no matter what the source is.
The accompanying SmartCentral mobile applications for both smartphones and tablets allow users to browse the same catalogue of content available on their TV directly from their mobile device. The app can then tell the TV to switch to the desired content, all without picking up a remote control.
I managed the project for RKS and led the design effort. Starting from basic requirements from the client, I created detailed wireframes, visual layouts, and production ready visual mockups of the TV and mobile app UIs, along with a document specifying functionality and interaction.
