February 22, 2012

Arts Council England and the BBC have revealed  the 53 successful applicants to create hundreds of hours of original commissions for The Space, the new experimental service, managed by the Arts Council and developed in partnership with the BBC, DTG, S&T and the BFI.

Successful applicants include Shakespeare’s Globe, John Peel Centre for the Creative Arts and the London Review of Books.

The project will launch in May and run until October this year. The Space will give arts and culture organisations the opportunity to experiment and engage with new and existing audiences in a completely new and innovative digital environment.

Programmes will be available across PCs, smartphones, tablets and internet connected TVs. The service will also be available as a red button, video on demand service via Freeview HD.

The interactive technology behind The Space complies the MHEG interaction channel functionality of the DTG D-Book. DTG Testing will test the MHEG application on digital terrestrial receivers to protect manufacturers and ensure a reliable viewer experience
