We’ve had Contents, API’s and Devices from: funk, PanonoFUNKE Digital TV Guide, HTC Vive, ARTE, Cardboards, Wizart API and Microsoft Cognitive Services

funk

funk is the first online-only offer from Germany's publicly owned media companies, ARD and ZDF. It is a multi platform network focused on video content targeting audiences between 14 and 29 years old. It is based on a powerful API that can be used to build products using all the contents funk has to offer. The API offers different endpoints, for instance for stories, video formats or analytics allowing for new services. Have fun playing around with it, have fun building something great with it.

Panono

Panono is an integrated solution for professional 360° photography, providing a complete portfolio including high-end camera hardware with an app-based control system and a cloud-based service for fully automated stitching, hosting, and further applications for 360° images. The Panono Camera is a ball-shaped, high-resolution 360° camera. It is equipped with 36 individual cameras that trigger simultaneously to capture everything in every direction in a single shot and deliver full-spherical images. With a total resolution of 108 megapixels, the Panono is the highest resolution 360° camera on the market.

FUNKE Digital TV Guide

The Content Discovery API (CDAPI) from FUNKE Digital TV Guide enables the creation of a wide range of solutions for navigating linear and non-linear video content on connected devices. It’s simple and flexible: no upfront investment is required, and the ease of handling allows for a short time-to-market. The API offers:

  • A comprehensive EPG tool set, based on rich program metadata from TV DIGITAL – includes program listings, advanced search, complex filtering, editorial recommendations and images
  • Flexible personalization functions for managing user data such as favorite channels, reminders, playlists and more
  • An advanced content recommendation system for personalized content discovery
  • Access to catalogues of catch-up TV providers (where available)
  • Theme Channels – curated video content, always kept up-to-date

HTC Vive and Google Cardboards

To get the AR & VR Experience going we'll have two complete HTC Vive Setups at the event courtesy to btk University as well as unitymedia. Also we'll have Google Cardboards for everyone thanks to the wonderful folks at Google

Microsoft Cognitive Services

Microsoft will provide vision, speech, language, knowledge, and search APIs and support in order to get the AI part of the event started. These APIs include APIs like Computer Vision, Text Analytics API, Video API and Face API to just name a few.

Wizart API

The Wizart API allows you to transform images into artworks painted by neural networks. It works best for entertaining / expressive / emotional / funny / communicative ideas. With over 70 styles in the API you are able to transform images to funny / artstic / spooky & horror / beautiful / creative results that can further be used for your great hackathon concept. Just upload, select the style, select output form.

Ericsson

Ericsson will be providing their state-of-art, Content Discovery API which allows seamless integration & delivery of global TV/VOD metadata. In addition, Ericsson will provide subtitling data allowing you to further explore use cases beyond standard captioning services.

ARTE

ARTE is providing an API enabling you to access all the publicly available information about ARTE programs and videos in a unified
way. Also ARTE will if all goes well provide access to 360° Videos to use in the AR & VR Environments.

Why

TV offers a lot of possibilities to hack and with some brand new APIs that will be made public for the first time we'll have the opportunity to create something new & exciting. 

Besides having a fun two days, we will demo the resulting hacks on Sunday afternoon to participants, a jury and anyone else interested. The demos will be live steamed. Also there will be prizes!1!
