LinkedTV kicks off – stay tuned!

The EU funded Integrated Project LinkedTV kicked off this past October 2011 in the beautiful surroundings of the Berlinghoven Castle close to Bonn, Germany. The castle was built in 1901 and since 1968 has been part of the German computing research institute GMD, which merged 2001 into the Fraunhofer Institute.

LinkedTV project coordinator Fraunhofer IAIS chose the impressive historical rooms of the castle for the launch of a project which addresses future developments in television. From now until April 2015 LinkedTV consortium members will collaborate on a shared vision of TV and Web content seamlessly interwoven into a single experience, which for future consumers will simply be “television”. Building on insights from hypervideo systems, content linking, user interface design and personalisation technology, LinkedTV will build an integrated platform for enabling this new experience of television, with an online Linked Media layer of links between content, and dedicated player technology for interwoven Web-TV content. This experience will be demonstrated in the contexts of Business TV, Cultural Heritage TV and Arts and Social TV.

Stay tuned to LinkedTV to learn about our work, demos, approaches, technologies and results. You can subscribe to the news feed and the Twitter feed, and get presentations and videos from the project via Slideshare and YouTube. Use the feedback mechanisms on those platforms to give us your comments, or contact the project coordinators. We look forward to travelling together with you into the future of television!
