Future of broadcasting unveiled at York Mediale 2018

BBC Connected Studios and Digital Creativity Labs, unveiled the next steps in the future of broadcasting as part of the York Mediale programme. They presented and explored the possibilities created by newly created technology that allows adaptable, interactive and personalised viewing experiences.

BBC R&D and DC Labs have been collaborating on technology which allows the development of content that is tailored to an individual’s circumstances, preferences and devices – and media experiences that allow the expression of multiple voices, arguments and perspectives. The production toolkit for the creation of these experiences and a rendering engine for their online delivery has been created by Dr. Davy Smith at DC Labs based at the University of York, a key partner in the delivery of York Mediale.

During York Mediale, the cutting edge technology was used by creative practitioners to explore the possibilities enabled by this innovative new medium of video-centric storytelling and develop an ambitious new personalised story. York Mediale unveiled the technologies, the learnings, and the production at the festival and showcased the world premiere of the personalised story developed.
