My friend John, owner and creator of SERFPAD®, and I got together last month to create some shots of his awesome product. I had never done any type of product shoot before, so I definitely wanted to give it a try. At the same time, John is pushing forward with his product and so pictures do help!
This product is great! So it's geared for those who have or want to have a, what I'll call, a 'PC TV' setup. This setup involves a PC/MAC computer being displayed through your TV. Why connect your computer to your TV you may ask? The cool thing about it is that it brings to your TV almost limitless possibilities. Anything you do on your computer you can do on your TV, while in the comfort of your soft living room couch.
Nowadays, we thrive on internet content. Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube are widely used and entertain probably millions of people daily. I, for one, am one of those, definitely a youtuber, and I'm greatly susceptible to Netflix binging. Over the years, people have realized our want for internet media content. This has brought the smart TV and internet connected micro-consoles era we are in. Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV are things we are familiar with. These bring the world of the internet to your 'dumb' TV. So while these devices are cool and do their job of bringing cat videos on command to your TV, something is missing. These internet devices and smart TVs force you to use a new, often clunky user-interface. They're often limited in their menu options, and as a personal opinion, not that fun to use - namely, having to use on-screen keyboards and it taking foreeever to type "funny cat videos" in the search bar. Sure, there are now options for voice search in some of these devices which helps. Solutions such as Chromecast are great, but for this you are tied down to always needing a smart phone/tablet/laptop on you. However with a PC TV setup, my TV is ready to go at all times - for anyone in the family - and I can type at full speed on my wireless keyboard and I'm not limited in what content I can access. I can access all my favorite internet video content AND I can access anything else I do on a computer (think gaming, work, social media, etc), from my TV. Who needs cable, satellite, or smart TVs when you already have the internet. No need to spend more money than you need. So how can you best enjoy a PC TV setup?
