TV companion-screen applications, Participation TV

  • role: user experience design, visual design (ADL)
  • work: wireframes, visual exemplars
  • client: Tectonic Interactive

This work focused on designing the user experience for a new breed of live participation TV service, which supported a synchronised ‘in the moment’ social interaction with live TV shows, offered a collective experience around show content and was available across a broad range of devices and platforms.

Active Design Lab designed visual exemplars for five TV companion-screen applications that were used to demonstrate the key capabilities of the core platform. The exemplars included: Social Vote, Quiz Show, Talent Show, Instant Poll and Twitter Vote.

The Tectonic Interactive team used the work to showcase their vision of Participation TV, engage with prospective customers, demonstrate and refine the requirements of the core platform and build their customer base.
