Paper Abstract

In the near future interactive television will provide many entertaining and innovative broadcasting formats for TV viewers. Moreover through the recent advancements in web-based visualisation techniques, complex application scenarios can already be realised. With the aid of a demonstrator called "deinewahl02" we proved a challenging concept on how to import web-based applications onto more complex platforms such as MHP set-up boxes. "deinewahl02" which represents a pretend political TV debate of the German general elections 2002, gives one the possibilities to playfully & entertainly be guided into the programme. Using the various functionalities such as "Voting" or "Hotspots" the possibilities of interaction, are well demonstrated within the programme. This provides a two way communication channel which can be established instantly, between the viewer and the broadcaster. "deinewahl02" has successfully demonstrated, ways where web-based applications may quickly and cheaply be implemented onto much more complex platforms.
