Skreens [Kickstarter page] is a revolutionary way to experience all of your entertainment. Your gaming console, cable box, Blu-Ray, Roku, PC, Apple TV and anything else you’re switching between — now all of it can come online at once, on one display and all absolutely at your control. So you can finish your work with the game on. Catch the top sports plays while checking in with your fantasy roster. Fire up a web browser without needing a computer. And never take your eyes off what matters most to you.
Skreens works for gaming + watching
With Skreens, you can easily bring separate media sources — like gaming consoles, cable or satellite, and all of your streaming devices — together on a single display. You control every part of the presentation: scale up, scale down, reposition any window and save your layouts to always have the experience you want.
Skreens is amazing for streamers
With the Skreens NexusPro unit you can add transparency, cropping, chroma key and layering, so streamers get the most amazing kit available to produce even more amazing broadcasts.
Even the simple stuff is better with Skreens
The last thing anyone wants to do is keep turning away from the biggest display in their house to keep looking at the most active — but smallest — display, your phone. With Skreens, use the embedded, fully-featured Chromium browser to connect with any content you want.
Skreens supports audio on all inputs. The user can select the primary audio channel to transmit out the HDMI and optical S/PDIF outputs to your home audio system – all other audio outputs are available as streaming output via WiFi. You can stream audio channels to your iPhone or tablet to listen on your individual earbuds or headphones.
Skreens is powered by patent-pending innovation at the silicon layer — the Skreens Media Accelerator — which is both designed and manufactured here in the United States. This is one of the most powerful FPGA chips available, with the horsepower to blend together almost unlimited high definition streams into a single interface — all in real time. So you get zero lag along with the ability to customize virtually any part of the interface to combine windows from different devices or the web. And your favorite second- and third-screen experiences get seamlessly blended into an incredible, new first-screen experience.
The Problem We are Solving
Every one of us is constantly switching. Watching the game, but checking our phone. Typing away on our laptop while our tablet bleeps for attention. And every time we switch its because we just missed something important. When experiences are fragmented, they’re useless. Skreens solves this problem by bringing everything together into a seamless, simple user experience.
With Skreens, you choose how to spend your time and only watch what entertains you. Blend your content to suit you. Don’t find yourself choosing between streaming and chatting, watching the game or playing a game. Make yourself a better gamer by having all the tools you need one the screen, at one time when you’re competing: game, game guides, codes, videos and chat rooms. Be a more active sports fan as you can watch the game, check up on your fantasy roster and trash talk on Twitter. Watch the Oscars while browsing Pinterest…the possibilities are endless.
Assemble Your Layouts, Save at Will
Everything you create on Skreens is saved in your personal settings, so the web browser connected to the gaming console connected to your Skype session can all be put right back in place with only a tap. The Skreens Controller app for iOS and Android makes it absolutely trivial to navigate around the interface and assemble the experience you want.
For streamers, you can access the Skreens API directly to connect to your broadcast software. So you can stitch together everything you want in real-time into the composition you want.
