Swisscom 'TV Photo Helper' for Windows®: easy photo sharing within the private home network

The service solutions portfolio designed by exclusively for the Swiss market leader has been extended: the ‘TV Photo Helper’ is a new tool that ensures trouble-free file and photo sharing via the Swisscom TV set to box and/or the TV set – another step towards a convergent home network that uses all appropriate devices for multi media purposes.

In order to do that, it’s important to configure the home network, the consumer PC (i.e. check of streaming and file sharing settings, network configuration check, media library check) and the Windows® Media Player correctly; this is carried out automatically by the software. After that, users can add/remove their photos to/from the Windows® Media Player playlist and display them on their TV via the Swisscom set top box.

The software was developed on the basis of detailed specifications and a flowchart with all relevant processes – both compiled by according to Swisscom requirements. As it is standard with products, it is designed especially for inexperienced users and doesn’t require any technical knowledge from their side.

As a useful tool for playing media content via the private home network, the Swisscom ‘TV Photo Helper’ is another vital step towards a ’networked’ future with its gradual integration of media devices.
