#eurtech15 EuropeanaTech talk on linking art objects in TV to #Europeana content on a #secondscreen

On 12-13 February 2015 LinkedTV participated at the EuropeanaTech Conference in Paris with its contribution on LinkedCulture: linking related art objects with a cultural heritage TV program using the Europeana API.

LinkedTV works on synchronized delivery of Web content related to objects and topics present in a parallel online television program, which we call “Linked Television”. An “ignite talk” (slides below) explained our LinkedCulture prototype which enhances the Dutch TV program Tussen Kunst et Kitsch (with a similar format to the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow) with links to art objects from Europeana similar to the art object being discussed in the show, displayed and browseable on a second screen such as a laptop or tablet alongside the TV viewing. A poster explained the technical developments of the LinkedTV project which make LinkedCulture possible.

Thanks to Johan Oomen for giving the talk, Lyndon Nixon for accompanying the poster and Lotte Belice Baltussen for continual support!
