In collaboration with the BBC Academy and the University of Birmingham Digital Heritage Hub I&A in Birmingham hosted a Fusion Lab on 15th and 16th January. The Lab brought together media managers, technologists and programme makers from across the BBC as well as a selection of academics, students, digital media companies and other Birmingham Creative City partners.
The brief for the lab was to to explore how multi-touch tables could be used to explore the BBC Birmingham archive and to come up with an innovative way that this could be presented in a public space. However, as well as dealing with the technical and editorial challenges of the application the Lab was just as much about sharing the skills and knowledge of everyone participating.
