Linking television and the Internet

Up until now, spontaneous questions such as these that arise during a program had to be clarified through a viewer’s own research on the Internet. If it’s up to researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS in Sankt Augustin, Germany, viewers will no longer have to look up such additional information in the future. In the project “LinkedTV”, the institute is working with eleven partners from seven countries on a new television concept. “We want to seamlessly combine television and the Internet so that viewers can directly access background information about the current program during the show, without having to spend a lot of time and effort themselves in searching for it,” explains project manager Heike Horstmann. – Science Codex
