This paper reports on the vision of LinkedTV driven by the EU project of the same name, and the work done in its first year. LinkedTV is a new type of television (or audio-visual) experience where Web and TV content can be seamlessly interlinked based on the concepts present within that content. The project addresses how the Web and TV is converging in end devices, and particularly this paper focuses on how we intend to answer the research challenges that the LinkedTV vision raises.
