Over 200 media, TV and film representatives from Germany and abroad attended the meeting “Changing the Picture“ organised by the Federal state of Brandenburg’s Ministry of Economics and European Affairs and hosted by RBB on November 14, 2013 in Potsdam, Germany. The theme was the changing face of TV in the Internet area. RBB’s Director of Production and Operations highlighted the increased demand for IT services for broadcast services and the development opportunities offered by digitalisation in general and HbbTV and Second Screen in particular. He outlined the possibilities for SMEs to become involved in FIcontent via the Open call. FIcontent services rbbtext (a Second Screen variant of the classic teletext, currently broadcast to Berlin and Brandenburg) and ARD EPG Second Screen (available nationwide across Germany) were also demonstrated.
Following the meeting, information about the FIcontent Open call was sent to over 70 SMEs in the region. More Open call roundtables will be organised in the next coming months. To be informed in advance of these events, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin or contact us at info(at)mediafi.org
