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)

Interview: Co-Founder, Dale Herigstad, on SeeSpace's New "Augmented Television" Device, InAiR
At CES earlier this month, SeeSpace, a start-up co-founded by multiple-Emmy-winning interactive media designer, Dale Herigstad, unveiled an ACR-enabled "augmented television" device dubbed InAiR, that analyzes the programming the viewer is watching, and overlays related content. The content is presented via an innovative and graphically rich user interface (as one would expect from Herigstad, who, among other things, was part of the research team that developed the digital interfaces that were a central element of the Spielberg movie, "Minority Report") which is designed for use on both 3D and 2D TV's. The interface can be navigated via a smartphone app or via gestural control systems such as Leap Motion and Kinect. Herigstad and his co-founders, entrepreneur Nam Do and investor Anne-Marie Roussel, recently set up a Kickstarter page to fund the manufacturing, marketing and roll-out of the InAiR device.
In this recorded interview with [itvt]'s editor-in-chief, Tracy Swedlow, Herigstad discusses the thinking behind InAiR, SeeSpace's plans for the future, and more.
