Deliverable D3.7 LinkedTV User Interfaces Selected and Refined
This report describes the LinkedTV user interfaces. Based on the results user studies and the initial evaluation of the year 2 prototype we selected and refined the interfaces. We selected a single screen application that uses HbbTV technology to provide additional information about a TV program as an overlay on the TV broadcast. In addition, we worked towards TV program companion applications that are tailored for two domains: news and cultural heritage. With these applications we demonstrate different types of interaction modes, such as synchronized content on a second screen, and bookmarking chapters combined with the exploration of related content after the program. The interfaces are built on top of the Multiscreen Toolkit. We created a component-based infrastructure that allows us to quickly create tailored companion applications by reusing and configuring interface components. In the final part of the project we finalize this approach and test it by applying it to a new domain.
