TOUCHPOINTS

Touchpoints allow relevant information to be shared seamlessly between Media and other topics.

Or, if you have defined media-related assets (such as your stereo system or Apple TV) in Media, the information about those resources is also accessible directly from Home + Assets. Or, if you have media-related projects you want to work on (such as connecting your new entertainment center or replacing the TV in your living room), you can define those projects in Media and they are accessible directly from Tasks + Projects.
