Second-screen, social TV & connected TV apps hackathon comes to London
The aim of TV hackfest is to provide a range of tv technologies, SDKs and APIs as well as briefs and competitions - to developers, designers, agencies, creatives and entrepreneurs to build design and show how future video entertainment could be delivered within an interactive multi-screen environment.
From first and second-screen apps, to social tv mashups and broadcaster / content centric content briefs, the TV Hackfest is a way to get creative and build future mutli-screen TV concepts with some cool prizes for the winners.
Why hack TV? Because there's half a trillion dollars up for grabs globally in TV ad spend and Pay TV revenue as the Internet starts to collide with traditional TV.
We will give attendees APIs, SDKs and data and challenge them to code/design/engineer/make and break for this 2 day event, building their own prototype solutions or ideas.
The event will be written up by Appmarkettv - and the winners getting a follow up PR to promote them, and announced on the appsworld blog to their global show attendees. Its a great way to showcase your talent, establish yourself as a leader in the TV tech space, and build new relationships at the forefront of multiplatform TV content development.
The event takes place at Earls Court, London, UK.
