The production is a digital television broadcast over Internet TV. We understand Internet TV to be multimedia services that are distributed on “open” internet that is using the already existing structure, without any operator controlling the network. Internet TV is in line with two growing trends in digital content, making the TV experience more interactive and allowing for customization.

i-VJ (interactive Video Jockey) is an Internet TV music channel presented by an interactive virtual character and based on a 24/7 automatic broadcast and VoD (Video-on-Demand) services. The content of some sections can be customized by users.

This experimental production is an interactive service, so the structure is not linear. The main services are as follows:

  • My i-VJ: allows users to decide the virtual VJ’s appearance.
  • My Playlists: users can create their own playlists.
  • My News: users can activate music news headlines.
  • My Account: users can set up and manage their account.
