New interactive online formats and delivery models

SMARTCAST’s main objective was to support broadcasters in their transition towards IP based media production and distribution.

SMARTCAST thus developed an Integrated Multimedia Production line for interactive audiovisual content and a satellite broadband delivery platform based on IP web casting services.

Deutsche Welle co-ordinated the project and – together with broadcasters ORF (AUT) and Radio Bremen (D) – developed various interactive content formats that were produced with Smartcast’s Integrated Production Line as developed by project partner Lost Boys Interactive (NL) and distributed through the satellite platform as developed by Eutelsat (F). On top of coordination and content format development Deutsche Welle team was in charge of validation and dissemination.

The project ran from 2001-2003
