Canditv (candy-TV) is software developed by Data Driven Logistics, based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire in the UK.

Overview[edit]

Canditv utilises a standard mobile phone to interact with content displayed on any public video display in order to deliver content to the customer. By dialling a number that is displayed on screen, the customer can interact with the displayed content via the appropriate keypress on their phone.

Study[edit]

Canditv is currently being studied by students at Staffordshire University. As part of a collaborative scholarship with Staffordshire University, it is being developed to create a new way to interact with the public.

Awards[edit]

  • Winner of the 2008 West Midlands ICT Cluster ICT Excellence Award for "Best Innovative Product"[3][4]
