Making great TV even better: The BBC's approach to companion experiences

Making great TV even better: The BBC's approach to companion experiences | Social TV is everywhere | Scoop.it
Our editorial approach to companion experiences is three fold:

• Build on existing audience needs and behaviour

• Go beyond broadcast

• Drive creative renewal and innovation

We want to immerse our audience in the programme they're watching even more by building on the existing needs and behaviours the show inspires. We've learned a lot about this from years of programme-related experimentation on BBC Red Button and BBC Online.

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

BBC R&D : Companion screen services - one year on | Social TV is everywhere | 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.

BBC connects all home devices with Universal Control

BBC connects all home devices with Universal Control | Social TV is everywhere | Scoop.it

BBC R&D has developed a universal control system API that opens up a wide range of possibilities for interacting with your TV across multiple devices.

 

The technology allows a network-connected device, be it a smartphone, laptop or toy Dalek, to talk via the home network to a set-top box that runs a particular piece of software. By doing this, a connected device can obtain the information it needs to synchronise things to the box, such as images or audio. The API (application programming interface) that the software implements is called Universal Control.
