STRATEGIC PARTNER OF THE BBC å
Central Asset Management System and Self-Service Portals
The world’s largest broadcaster counts on Exozet as its strategic partner. Exozet initially secured the budget for three B2B platforms and, as a first step, developed the news service portals for BBC Pictures, BBC Previews, and BBC Radio Previews.
Exozet and the BBC cooperated closely to make further advancements to the solution, covering the entire process from the commissioning of asset production and the enhancement of media files to internal approvals and publication on the various portals.
Photo Library and more B2B Platforms
The asset management system originally developed for the BBC is generic, while simultaneously featuring such an open structure that similar online services based on the same technology have already been planned and implemented: a portal for web-based broadcasting of program trailers was launched. These trailers are available in broadcast quality and are provided to other TV channels to use (BBC promo clips).
The BBC Photo Library www.bbcphotosales.co.uk is another major B2B platform that was launched: it helps the broadcaster to monetize on it's extensive photo archive for the first time.
AWARD-WINNING TRANSMEDIA THRILLER å
Groundbreaking online world for the ZDF film “Dina Foxx”
Every year, fewer young viewers are watching linear programming on television, while at the same time, the number of people watching video on demand online is steadily increasing. ZDF has recognized this trend, and conducted its second-ever transmedia experiment: The story of the ZDF thriller “Dina Foxx – Tödlicher Kontakt” was told both on TV and online. The two-part program was broadcasted on television, but online users were provided with extra information that allowed them to watch the second part of the made-for-TV movie from a completely different perspective. The production was awarded with the International Digital Emmy in the category digital program: fiction 2015 and with the Rockie Award for Interactive Fiction 2015.
On behalf of production company UFA LAB, we developed the Dina Foxx website, as well as the apps for iOS and Android. We programmed a diverse, technologically complex online world that combines gamification approaches with innovative 360° video technology.
The TV thriller will be complemented online by three interactive narrative threads: “Investigation,” “Game,” and “Series.” In the “Investigation” section, the users themselves get involved in the action. Our 360° video player plays both video and graphics in a full panorama view and contains surface tags; clicking these tags will open a puzzle. In the “Game” section, players help scientist Kilian Berger develop a cure for an epidemic. And finally, in the “Series” section, users will find out about important plot twists.
Project in brief
HABA ORCHARD å
Charming iOS app for children
As the digital developer for HABA, a wood manufacturing company known for highquality children’s toys, children’s games and furniture, Exozet faced the challenge to transfer a brand primarily known for its haptical and physical quality into a digital form. We first distilled the essence of the board game "Orchard" and then translated those features into an innovative yet comfortably familiar game on touch screens.
The app consists of three different parts: In the playing part, children help Theo the raven harvest fruits by collecting them in the respective baskets. In the learning part, the kids tend to their first virtual tree and watch how it bears fruits. And finally in the discovering part, a hidden object shows a vibrant, colorful orchard.
AUDI CITY å
Cyberstores with TVNEXT technology
Advancement through technology: Since 2012, Audi presents its models through digital pathways in the inner cities of the world. The first purely virtual showroom is the Audi City in London. Since then, the high tech presentation concept has also been brought to Dubai, Beijing and Berlin. We support the Ingolstadt car manufacturer with our established TVNEXT online video platform. The OVP manages all HD videos, converts them into all required formats and replicates them to the terminal.
In its Audi Cities, Audi uses videos in HD quality to present all car models for digital video walls, multi-touch tables and iPads. Customers can combine all available Audi models on the market with countless equipment options virtually and then bring the desired car with a single hand movement in actual size to one of the floor to ceiling "power walls".
Videos of the various production companies are automatically imported to the TVNEXT OVP. The OVP manages, transcodes, and replicates them to a local entity. From there, they can be played on various devices. We individually tailored our own Java-based system to the requirements of the project and connected it via interfaces to existing systems.
Content Ingest: Automatic video import from multiple data sources
Automated multi-format transcoding, eg to full HD
Connection to third-party systems via various interfaces
Replication and distribution of videos to local TVNEXT instances
Alerting and monitoring
20 planned locations worldwide
ORF TVTHEK å
Responsive VoD and Live Stream Portal for Austria’s State Broadcaster
With the ORF TVthek it's fun to miss something on TV. For the largest media provider in Austria, we implemented a live stream and VOD portal in a responsive design. Exozet optimized the interface design for the screen in varying sizes including smartphones, tablets, and the desktop.
The technical background is our content and video management solution which was customized for the specific needs of the ORF. The editorial workflow offers the freedom to broadcast any video clips in online exclusive topics. In addition, the integrated clip editor provides the ability to edit videos directly in the CMS: After automated encoding the editors can cut the videos or set some markers.
The TVthek provides original content such as interviews in full and live streams of certain events. In addition, an archive for selected programs is permanently available. We integrated advertising on the website and in the video streams and implemented "nurago" for the measurement of audience.
Exozet as a one-stop-shop agency: consulting, design, mobile design & technology
Ad integration & combined audience measurement
Player for Flash (OSMF Framework) and HTML5
TVNEXT video management system including online production tools
Service API to the mobile of the ORF
Accessible web design & program-related site branding
Verticals concept: format-related sub-portals based on the central backend solution and established workflows
ZDFTIVI MEDIATHEK å
Children’s videos on demand
ZDFtivi is ZDF’s children’s program – with its own web presence and online media library. Previously, ZDFtivi’s young target group was increasingly attempting to access videos on mobile devices, which wasn’t possible with the purely Flash-based media library. For this reason, ZDF commissioned us with making the tivi media library available in the highest possible quality on desktop computers and mobile devices, as well. Considering the fact that children often receive older cell phones or tablets as hand-me-downs, the content had to be accessible on as many devices and operating systems as possible.
The successful platform was awarded the Red Dot Design Award for Communication Design in September 2015.
Design and usability for children between the ages of 8 and 12
Function on mobile devices that plays recorded jokes when device is shaken
Push notifications in the apps for videos that are about to expire
Responsive media library for desktop and mobile browsers
Connection to existing ZDF content interfaces
