First LinkedTV demo “Antiques Interactive” shown at EuroITV 2012

On July 6th 2012, the LinkedTV project demonstrated its first technology demonstrator at the
EuroITV 2012 conference in Berlin. The demonstrator uses as its seed content the Dutch TV programme ‘Antiques Roadshow’ and
via a TV and simple remote control interaction the viewer can select concepts of interest in the program and access a set of Web based contents such as images, wikipedia pages or websites.

LinkedTV demo "Antiques Interactive"

While a very early demo of the ideas of the LinkedTV project, the core ideas and approach were greeted positively by conference participants – a mix of academics, TV researchers and media industry representatives – and confirmed for us again the value of the LinkedTV approach for the future of television. LinkedTV thanks especially the partners Sound and Vision, CWI and Noterik for their development and support of the demo and the Dutch TV producers of Antiques Roadshow for the use of their video content.
