SORT BY Relevancy
POV, PBS's long-running showcase for independent non-fiction films, recently unveiled six new interactive documentary shorts that it bills as "allow[ing] audiences to engage...on a deeper level, using new technologies and new paradigms in storytelling" (note: more information on each of the documentaries can be found here). Four of the documentaries were created by alumni of POV Hackathon, POV's weekend laboratory series, which provides mentorship and collaboration opportunities for non-fiction media makers and technologists.
In this recorded interview with [itvt] editor-in-chief, Tracy Swedlow, Adnaan Wasey, executive producer of POV Digital, discusses how the six films use interactivity and new forms of storytelling to deepen audiences' engagement with their subject matter; describes the work of POV Hackathon; and explains why he believes that documentaries should no longer be confined by traditional linear narratives.
[itvt] is pleased to present an audio recording of the TVOT 2014 session, "A City Is Another TV Channel." The session was described in the show brochure as follows:
"Entertainment is only one of many content types arriving on television and second and third screens. Increasingly, individuals and households are using these screens to consume services that leverage the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT): One of the most exciting developments in the IoT is taking place around an increasingly sensorized and annotated urban environment. First-generation services like Yelp and Foursquare are early successes. But even greater growth awaits, which will demand more sophisticated solutions, architectures and user interfaces, many of which will employ video and be delivered as televisual experiences. This session will bring together representatives from the world of advanced-television, screen design, urban theory and beyond to explore the ways in which the city will become a channel of the TV of Tomorrow." Panelists included:
Fabian Birgfeld, Director, W12 Studios
Don Dulchinos, President, Smart Home and Away (Moderator)
Melanie Nutter, Consultant (Former Director of the Department of the Environment, City and County of San Francisco)

Lingospot, a provider of automatic scene-level TV metatags and metacontent, last week announced a partnership with "augmented TV" company, SeeSpace. The latter has developed an ACR-enabled device dubbed InAiR, which, when connected via HDMI between a TV and a set-top box, enhances programming with what the company describes as "a rich, dynamic and animated viewer experience using the main TV screen as well as the space between the screen and the viewer" (the experience is designed to work on 2D, 3D and 4K TV's). The deal with Lingospot will see the latter powering the content for InAiR's augmented-TV experience: the company uses natural language processing, semantic search, image analysis and machine learning technologies to analyze "multiple modalities" of a TV broadcast and automatically extract metadata; and then enhances TV viewing by adding relevant metacontent, such as articles, photos and tweets.
In this recorded interview with [itvt] editor-in-chief Tracy Swedlow, Lingospot co-founder and CEO, Nikos Iatropoulos, and SeeSpace co-founder, Anne-Marie Roussel, discuss their companies' new deal and the ways in which they are collaborating to enhance the viewing experience.
