My Role: As a member of the UX team at Jamdeo, I have been involved in several preliminary research projects as well as Interaction design for various features of VIDAA TV version 3.0, 3.5 and 3.9. Some of these features can be viewed in this promo video, such as the Application Center, Video on Demand, Google apps and Screen Share. I have also designed the interaction for a stand alone Android app for Hisense mobile devices. This companion app extends the TV's screen to the consumer's handheld device and provides them with contextual information and controls (For confidentiality agreements, the final design and implementations can't be shared on my portfolio).
Our Process: Communication is the foundation of our design process. First, we need to fully understand the requirements provided by the product definition team. Second, we clearly define all the interaction behaviors and use-cases in our IXD and VD specifications. Third, these documents are communicated with the Development and QA teams for implementation and testing. After product delivery, the UX team provides support for all the other parts of the product development team and makes ongoing improvements for over the air updates based on the consumers' feedback.
