European Experts Revolutionize Interlinking of TV and Web: LinkedNews Creates the Information Source of the Future

The seamless interplay of television and Internet has now been made possible by an international group of media experts from eight countries, with scientific coordination based in Vienna. With its application LinkedNews, the team demonstrates for the first time the full potential of optimum interlinking of TV and the Web. A custom-tailore application for mobile devices offers an ideal selection of additional information and background reports on otherwise briefly summarized TV news reports. German regional broadcaster RBB got involved as early as the application's development phase, showing the great interest of established TV stations. The team, which is supported by EU funding, gives broadcasters access not "only" to finished applications, but also to comprehensive technologies for developing their own formats for integrating TV and Internet content.
