BBC R&D are here at the SummerTyne festival conducting a public trial of Broadcast Wi-Fi technology (the “Trial”). Developed in collaboration with Global Invacom, a Broadcast Wi-Fi Trial app (the “Trial App”) aims to deliver content at events and big venues to large numbers of people by providing a ‘virtual giant screen’. By using custom Trial Wi-Fi systems, we are able to send content to mobile devices through the Trial App without using up the data allowance from your mobile provider.
We want to see how well the Broadcast Wi-Fi technology works in a real-world environment, across different devices, and to get feedback from the public. The Trial App will offer two streams of exciting SummerTyne content, provided by The Sage, for you to enjoy. You can watch exclusive footage from SummerTyne Secret Garden Sessions 2011, as well as a backstage podcast created specially for the Trial and the festival. The App (including all content offered within) is only for your personal use as part of the Trial.
Here’s how you can take part:
The Trial App (including all content offered within) is only for your personal, non-business use as part of the Trial. Copying, distribution and commercial use of the Trial App or any content made available within are NOT permitted.
Please note that the broadcast Wi-Fi technology being used is experimental and may not meet the usual BBC technical standards. Please remove the Trial App from your mobile device after the end of the Trial.
The App and the content within it are © copyright BBC and/or its third party partners 2019. All rights reserved.
