“It’s everything you’re already doing, but on one interface.”
A Kickstarter campaign went live yesterday for Skreens, a product that allows you to bring separate media sources like broadband, cable, satellite, streaming devices and gaming consoles together on a single customizable display. The product raised its goal of $25,000 in 25 minutes, and more than tripled that amount in under 24 hours.
“Your PS4, XBox, PCs, cable box, Roku, 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,” the description reads. “So you can stream up the game you’re playing without dropping a frame. 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 also allows you to adjust the windows on the display – size, placement, cropping, transparency, and scaling are completely customizable – and promises no lag. The product appears to be geared towards gamers, streamers, and all-around multitaskers.
Users will also get full control over audio. One can select a specific HDMI input for audio, which will then be transmitted to your sound system via S/PDIF. All other sound inputs will be streamed via WiFi to other devices.
The product appears to have had a positive reception by gamers and streamers at PAX Prime as well, if the compilation video below is anything to go by.
