Linked Television anticipates a future where watching TV or browsing Web content would become essentially the same experience. It is watching the news and getting background information on the stories; it is seeing a painting in a TV programme and identifying the artist and the museum where it hangs. LinkedTV is making this possible and cost-effective for content owners and broadcasters by offering a Platform, which handles the complete end-to-end workflow of video analysis and enrichment as well as personalising to each viewer.
To complement this, the LinkedTV Editor Tool offers a dashboard for broadcaster programme teams to utilize LinkedTV’s automatically generated annotations to quickly produce high quality contextual information queues for their viewers. The tool has native support for annotating (video) content with Europeana links.
The editor tool itself is being further developed within ArtTube connect (the tool can also operate on other platforms as well). Development on this will start early 2016.
