Band Camp Berlin application wins HbbTV Award!

MPAT is now officially a tool for creating award winning applications!

At the HbbTV Symposium in Rome, the 2017 inaugural HbbTV Awards were presented in seven categories.

Three MPAT created applications were entered in the category “Best use of HbbTV for broadcast enhancement“. All of them made the shortlist.
And the  “Band Camp Berlin” application, created by rbb did win the award!

Nico Patz accepted the trophy for rbb at the HbbTV Awards ceremony.

MPAT attendees at the HbbTV Symposium were more than happy with the result!


HbbTV Symposium in Rome – Day 1

While the EU “Future of Media” workshop is going on in Brussels, there’s another important event for MPAT going on in Rome.

The two-day HbbTV Symposium started there today.

While the MPAT presentation will be held tomorrow by Simona Tonoli from Mediaset and Miggi Zwicklbauer from Fraunhofer FOKUS,  the MPAT booth was already showcasing the project today.

And Mediaset (together with Fincons) was also promoting MPAT and MPAT applications in the event brochure.



MPAT Poster Presentation at EU Event in Brussels

MPAT is present at the Media Projects Workshop in Brussels today (Oct, 17th).

The workshop is named “Collaborating Towards the Future of Media” and MPAT is showing a poster at the “Poster Presentation” session of the event.

MPAT is in a quite different situation compared to Cluster Meeting in March 2016 (and should be). Back then, MPAT was just starting up and talking about concepts, now MPAT (as an EU activity) is three months before the end, so we can talk more about MPAT created applications that are on the air.

This maturity of MPAT and the applications created with it is also reflected in a last minute change to the poster – namely the addition of “Shortlisted for an HbbTV award” label to three of the applications shown on the poster.  MPAT applications are not only on the air, but broadcasters are sufficiently fond of them to put them forward to be considered for an industry award evaluation.

MPAT applications shortlisted for HbbTV Award

Applications from rbb and Mediaset have been shortlisted for the HbbTV Award!

The Awards recognise those companies that demonstrate the best adoption of HbbTV, with the theme: HbbTV: Technical Excellence, Commercial Advantage

Applications shortlisted in the category ‘Best use of HbbTV for broadcast enhancement’ are “Band Camp Berlin” and “Täter Opfer Polizei” from rbb and “TGCOM24/Sportmediset/METEO” from Mediaset, all created with MPAT.

The HbbTV Awards Ceremony  will be on the 17th of October 2017.

Wish us luck!
