BBC R&D : Companion screen services - one year on

BBC R&D : Companion screen services - one year on | second screen | Scoop.it

It's been a long time since the last series of blogs on Orchestrated Media. Time for a catch-up. Firstly, we've stopped using the term orchestrated media, and instead talk about dual-screen and companionscreen. Dual-screen reflects where things stand currently: the companion service can synchronise against the broadcast content using various technologies. See Steve's blog about that. The BBC's launch of dual screen for Antiques Roadshow is imminent.

 

Looking ahead, we see the next generation of services allowing a wider set of companion services, where the TV, the companion, and the Web, are inter-communicating, allowing a web site or a companion app to both monitor and control the TV. This gives TV -awareness on web-sites, and web-awareness of TV services. Each of these three domains could be the launch-point for companion screen services, and enage the other two domains as needed. Companion screen pertains to this wider role for the companion device, compared to today.

DVB extends its reach to companion screens

DVB extends its reach to companion screens | second screen | Scoop.it

The DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) group is seeking an expanded role to unify global standards for multiscreen services, while also ending the historical regional fragmentation in digital terrestrial transmission.

 

Emerging multiscreen services are being held back by fragmented standards, particularly over interaction between companion screens and linear broadcast services. At an IBC press conference the DVB said it wanted to act as a unifying force both in digital terrestrial transmission and companion screen interaction.

 

So far companion screen applications have grown up around many different proprietary technologies and are ripe for standardization, according to Nick Wells, vice chair of the DVB Technical Committee. “I expect to see broadcast and IP networks working together and here the DVB has a huge amount to offer,” said Wells.

Incoming – world’s first 2nd screen app for the cinema

Incoming – world’s first 2nd screen app for the cinema | second screen | Scoop.it

Taking their cue from the world of television and the likes of Zeebox, a Dutch film company called 2CFILM has developed what it claims to be the world’s first synchronised second-screen application for use in the cinema.


App – the first film in a series of titles on 2CFILM’s development slate – will be supported by content available through an application for iPhone and Android devices, which delivers a parallel storyline via the app content, bringing the big screen and the mobile device together throughout the film.


The project uses technology based on SyncNow digital watermarking by Dutch firm Civolution and the cross-app development capabilities of another Dutch firm called Service2Media.

The recent International Broadcasting Convention highlighted multi-screen services: service delivery platforms and video gateways.

 

Anyone experienced in going to major trade shows knows that there’s no way you can cover all the ground or uncover every gem hidden along the path, especially at a tradeshow as big as the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam. My own search criteria were at the intersection of TV software – which has always been my focus – and multi-screen delivery, the big news at IBC this year.
