Video data rendering devices (e.g., flat panel displays such as smart tvs, set top boxes, and media dongles) can wirelessly broadcast their identity for discovery to portable wireless electronic devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets) interested in obtaining audio and other data associated with video programming displayed on the video data rendering devices. An application can be downloaded and activated on portable devices that will enable them to obtain a list of available (discovered) video data rendering devices (multiple screens, depending on venue) and allow wireless access to audio and data associated with displayed video programming.

Portable terminal and controlling portable terminal

Avoided is falsely detecting a hand of a usual user being in contact with a contact sensor, instead of detecting an object, such as water, having a high dielectric constant being in contact with the contact sensor. A smartphone (1) includes a contact determination section (101) which determines that (i) a hand is in contact with a contact sensor (11) in a case where an output value outputted by the contact sensor (11) is not lower than th1 and lower than th3 and (ii) an object, such as water, having a high dielectric constant is in contact with the contact sensor (11) in a case where the output value is not lower than th3..
