We’re excited to announce the launch of our 4u2 Messenger on Facebook, in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision

The 4u2 Messenger was built with the specific goal in mind: to leverage the breadth of audiovisual archival content, especially the long tail of large-scale collections, in order to build long-lasting engagement between content owners and their audiences. Learn more about it in our blog

 Are you interested in trying it out? The application is now available online and in Dutch only. Try it out here


When the ReTV Project kicked off in 2018 with the goal to re-imagine television for an interactive age, none of us imagined what the third and final year of the project would bring.

With the pandemic, 2020 was a year of many challenges and changes: the whole media industry was disrupted in a way nobody could have foreseen, and there's been an undeniable shift in media consumption. Take a look at our take on last year's challenges and what's to come, in our blog by Lyndon Nixon. Read it here

The ReTV supported application ‘Abendgruß’ provides consumers with quick and easy access to personalised content from broadcasters and media archives with their smart speakers. We shot a video to show how it works with Google Assistant, on the Google Nest Hub. Learn more about it and see it in action, in our blog
