Ocean Blue Software, a provider of digital TV middleware software, has developed an interactive assistive living TV calendar and diary to help users organise their lives via their TVs and enable doctors to interact with patients at home.
Ocean Blue claims the new Timewatch Calendar and diary system – which will be launched at the ANGA Cable Show in Germany in June- is the world’s first embedded diary for use on digital TVs and set-top boxes.
With IP connectivity the Timewatch Calendar can be linked to, for example, Google calendar, health care system servers or medical clinic online calendars. Examples of such interaction would include family and friends being able to post reminders on to the calendar. Doctors and other health care professionals will also be able to interact with patients and manage medical appointments through the calendar.
