About

This site is about two REACT-funded projects called The Nth Screen (2013) and Nth Camera (2014), which worked on Matter 2 Media apps for respectively playing and recording synchronised video together on any number of mobile phones, tablets and other devices.

The projects were joint with UWE: Charlotte Crofts (both projects) and Mandy Rose (Nth Camera).

The Nth Screen app emerged. See nthscreen.tv.
