The LinkedTV media player and API has evolved from a single player and limited API in version 1 to a toolkit to allow rapid development and creation of different kind of applications within the HTML5 / multiscreen space. The main reason for this transition is that during the course of the Linked TV project different partners had different requirements for their scenarios. Instead of trying to fit all these requirements into one player and, most likely, compromise on the functionalities of the scenarios we wanted to offer something that would allow all partners a satisfiable solution. Therefore the Springfield Multiscreen Toolkit, or short SMT, has been developed. The aim for the SMT was to allow flexibility for developing multiscreen applications. Also from a commercial point of view a toolkit with examples is more interesting than a pure player as it gives the freedom of developing new ideas with the LinkedTV platform.
