Web and TV seamlessly interlinked
Lyndon Nixon (scientific coordinator)
There are more Internet-connected devices for TV
viewing. Consumers are seeking Internet information
while watching main video content. Current second
screen solutions have limited coverage and refer to
programming as a whole.
LinkedTV aims for a generic solution for attaching
related content to fragments of audiovisual material.
A key aim is lowering the cost for media owners to
annotate their material and generate links to related
content at object level.
Another is provide a UI and UX for viewers to easily and
non disruptively browse between audiovisual material
and its enrichments
LinkedTV provides a Platform which integrates the
functional components of linking TV and the Web:
§ Media analysis
§ Semantic annotation
§ Expanding the annotations using online domain
§ Adding links to related content based on Web APIs
and content crawls over whitelisted sources
§ Personalisation of the enrichments according to
user behaviour and interest
§ Adaptation of the enrichments to the end device
The full end to end workflow is available to media
owners via an easy to use Web API.
LinkedTV playout can be on a single TV screen or linked to it from a personal second screen.
Watch TV; see the concepts being addressed in the program; browse to suggested related content. Share
and bookmark enrichments for later!
