  • ZDF MEDIATHEK

    Reconciling linear TV with the future

     

    The new ZDF Mediathek – the online media library for ZDF, one of Germany’s largest broadcasters – bridges the gap between linear and non-linear television. After all, providers have to offer more than just high-quality content – they also have to deliver it in a user-friendly format. Only those who take these new viewing habits into account and design their online portfolios in a modern, dynamic, and user-centered way will be able to compete in this market.

     

    Together with ZDF, we developed a model for a media library under public law in the digital world within five months. On this, our concept for the ZDF Mediathek is based: We focused on how the content is structured and linked with each other, on user guidance and a clear design. The new media library is completely responsive, of course, and accessible on (almost) all platforms. Flash is out of the picture. We also developed the back-end based on a system architecture that exclusively relies on microservices.

     

    The new ZDF Mediathek operates on a range of different playout channels with apps for various devices. ZDF also commissioned us to technically implement the new media library as general contractor. The responsive front-end and the entire back-end are based on the “Sophora” content management system from Subshell, which supplies all ZDF platforms with content.

  • VRM – THE UMBRELLA BRAND

    Brand strategy, re-branding and marketing for a regional media house

     

    Only few industries experience today’s digital change as intensely as the media: The publishing and newspaper industry of 2017 is crossing the border between offline and online; digital income models are the future. Media houses want and have to win new audiences - and develop new, innovative products. On the one hand, these have to satisfy digital consumers; on the other hand, they should capitalize on the good reputation of the traditional publishing business. Successful will be those who believably orchestrate and market their growing portfolio: An overarching umbrella brand becomes more and more important.

     

    For the Mainz-based media company VRM, we designed a brand architecture that takes into account the consumer's needs: The umbrella brand “VRM” and the subsidiary product categories “VRM Service”, “VRM Leben” (“VRM Life”), “VRM Medien” (“VRM Media”), and “VRM Engagement” make the company portfolio easily accessible, and show VRM’s additional values for all audiences at a glance. Following extensive market research, we defined an umbrella brand mission, and from that we derived the new corporate design. The new brand graphics with their color gradient symbolize the dynamics of change, and the contour lines visualize the connection with Germany’s Rhein-Main area.

     

    As part of the introduction of the umbrella brand, we supported VRM with measures to implement the brand externally and internally. Thus, we developed a marketing campaign with print and online ads as well as a radio commercial. Internally, we accompanied the transition with a number of workshops to train VRM employees in how to successfully implant and lead their new umbrella brand.

  • TRUTH IN VIRTUAL REALITY

    Interactive product presentation of the Audi e-tron Sportback concept

     

    Staying true to the slogan “Truth in engineering” to present its new e-tron Sportback concept, Audi wanted to show the dynamics of the vehicle and the brand in a unique experience. Previously, only few people had been able to experience live the Audi e-tron Sportback; our VR experience software makes this possible for the first time in a digital, interactive way. Completely flexible, in any space available.

     

    The application is set in a salt flat, and it shows the Audi e-tron in all its details and in action. The user can get up close to the car, and even take a look into it. By waving a virtual flag, the user sets off the car and becomes a part of the action. In another scene, the user will get a feel for the speed of the vehicle: In a race of car vs. user on a hoverboard, aided by wind machines for a haptic feedback. Ultimately, the user becomes immersed in a multi-sensory experience.

  • CATAN UNIVERSE

    Cross-platform version of a board game classic

     

    In a browser, via Steam, or finally on all common mobile devices: In the new cross-platform version “Catan Universe”, the world of Catan grows together. The user can play on various platforms with just one account – anywhere and anytime. Together with digital publisher United Soft Media (USM), we have created a new digital version of the iconic game, and have implemented it with agile development methods.

     

    “Catan Universe” contains a free multiplayer version of the original “Catan” board game with a fixed board. Additional options and popular add-ons like “Seafarers” and “Cities and knights” can be bought individually. Those who would rather ‘settle’ with another player will find “Rivals for Catan” the fitting complement in the Catan universe. Thanks to the personal Catan Universe account, every settler can use their in-game purchases across all platforms.

     

    We have developed the entire game with Scrum – from the concept for the game mechanisms to the graphics and the technical implementation. The whole time, our team was in constant communication with USM. Thus, the development was a joint and steady process with everyone contributing their ideas and feedback – the client, our team and, finally, the test users. That way, we have created a product for the core of the Catan universe – the gamers and fans.

  • STRATEGIC PARTNER OF THE BBC

    Central asset management system and self-service platforms
     

     

    The world’s largest broadcaster counts on us as its strategic partner. We 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.

     

    We cooperated closely with the BBC 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 platforms.
     

    The asset management system originally developed for the BBC is generic, while simultaneously featuring a structure so open that similar online services based on the same technology have already been planned and implemented: A platform for web-based broadcasting of program trailers was launched (BBC promo clips). These trailers are available in broadcast quality, and are provided for the use of other TV channels.

     

    The BBC Photo Library is another major B2B platform that was launched: It helps the broadcaster to monetize on its extensive photo archive for the first time.

  • AUDI CITY

    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 was 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 (OVP). 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 on digital video walls, multi-touch tables, and iPads. Customers can virtually combine all Audi models available on the market with countless equipment options, and then bring the desired car in actual size to one of the floor-to-ceiling "power walls" with a single hand movement.

     

    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.

     

    The project at a glance

    • Content ingest: Automatic video import from multiple data sources

    • Automated multi-format transcoding, e.g. 1080p 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
