Out of the Box - The Game Plan

Teams

Teams were typically 3-5 per team. Some smaller some bigger.

We had technologists, developers, designers, creatives and entrepreneurs looking to redefine how the set-top box, connected television, tablet or smartphone can create a new kind of viewing experience.

 

Goal

Teams had two days to formulate their idea and build a proof-of-concept.

 

Industry experts and mentors from Google, Sky, Channel 4 and more were on-hand throughout the weekend for guidance - together with plenty of developers to bounce questions off. 

 

Pitches

At the end of the two days the teams had 5-10 mins to pitch their ideas and demo what they had developed to our panel of judges. It was a great opportunity to raise their profiles and win some cracking hardware prizes!

 

​Judging criteria
 

  • What problem does it solve?
  • How does it work?
  • Why it is new or different?
  • Who will use it, where and when?
  • How achievable is it to implement?

[ We’re not looking for ideas for programmes or channels. ]

 

Whilst you need to be prepared to share anything you create publicly, you will retain all IP.

 

'Out of the Box' was a non profit event put on by the TV Triangle to foster interaction between companies, universities and other organisations wanting to drive innovation.

The aim of the game was to innovate hard, meet great people and have a lot of fun - and we certainly did!
