Sophia Antipolis, 21 May 2015 – The TV world is changing radically. The viewer went from his small TV to multi-screen: while watching his favorite shows (on his flat screen, tablet or smartphone), he browses through the internet, sends SMS/emails and posts his comments on social networks.
The NexGen-TV project has been created to respond to these new challenges around interactive experience around TV while taking into account the specificities of the content. The project consists in the development of a complete platform including:
- Semi-automated tools generating enriched and interactive contents based on TV and social streams
- An industrial solution to develop specific applications around interactive TV and multi-screen
The NexGen-TV project received a double labeling by the Pole SCS and Images&Réseaux. It has been selected by the French ministry for a financial support as part of the 19th Fonds Unique Interministériel (FUI). The project is also backed by the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
