AbstractOpinion polls are omnipresent in broadcasting concepts and play an important role in live TV settings. However, involving the audience more intensively in both, the studio as well as at home in front of the television sets, and bringing them together using real-time interaction is still an open challenge. To tackle this aspect, we present LiveVis – a dynamic circle packing visualization with color coding. LiveVis visualizes data based on an individual web questionnaire which is filled out using a second screen device and is embedded into the TV stage in real time. A proof of concept prototype was implemented and applied during several stage events such as the c-tv conference which is produced as a TV show and streamed live over the internet. User feedback showed that the interactive real time survey was very well received by the audience.
