The 4K team did a great mash-up using IVA’s Entertainment Express and lots of IVA trailers.

They took a 4K display from UXP, featured an IVA trailer at the entry point as a videogram; displayed our related content along the bottom with content from WURL down the right.

They also incorporated a neat drinking game that can be integrated with live TV with sensors from ARM.  The 4K team had lots of other great ideas , but unfortunately there just wasn’t time in 24 hours to get done.

There was lots of interest in IVA trailers at the hack, in fact 50% of the teams used IVA APIs in their entries.  That meant IVA had some great challengers from which to choose a winner.

So the competition was fierce!

Here are a few pix, including one of Jason Schneid, who was IVA’s point man in Chicago.  Good job Jason!
