Perform for real time Facebook voters! XFactor the way it should be done Israel's "Rising Star" 2nd screen evolution | Education Technology | Scoop.it
ITV plans to turn a new talent show with a “technological twist”, bought from the Israeli producers behind Homeland, into its next big entertainment hit.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, November 21, 2013 4:28 AM

Quote "

Rising Star is a traditional musical talent search with the twist that viewers download a free mobile app that allows them to vote in real time during the show, via the second screen.

When a performer comes out on stage, he or she is separated from the studio audience, and the judges, by a translucent floor-to-celling LED screen.

Judges and viewers vote as the performer begins to sing and images of voters at home, taken from their Facebook pages, appear live on the LED screen facing the performer.

Only if a singer wins over 70 per cent of the viewer votes does the wall rise and the singer then steps out to accept the applause of the live studio audience.

Rising Star is expected to air in the primetime Sunday evening slot that will be vacated by Dancing On Ice when the celebrity ice-skating format ends in 2015.

ITV declined to comment on the Rising Star deal. However sources said the broadcaster did not intend the show to become a replacement for The X Factor, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary but has lost viewers during its Saturday night slot."

Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.

Julie Cumming-Debrot's curator insight, July 22, 5:25 AM

Looks like a very interesting tool here.  Thanks for sharing Nik.
