BBC Prototype Ecosystem
The BBC commissioned SlipStream (UK) to build a prototype integrating BBC services with the SlipStream database. We worked with SlipStream to build a Flash rather than MHEG5 implantation of the TV UI.

The ecosystem and social networking features enabled by the BBC (Programs-to-Go) PoGo-SlipStream database, work across PC, TV and mobile platforms.

Currently, the Flash-based TV UI shown here, works on TVs and STBs supported by active-TV technology for the PC. The TV UI is formatted in the browser of a networked PC acting as a proxy for the TV browser. Active-TV technology is available in retail from D-Link (DSM520). It is a relatively simple task to add additional internet broadcast feeds, widgets, or re-skin the UI in support of another brand.
