Viewers of the BBC's Eurovision programme could interact via the Red Button, sending in their opinions of the songs, musings on costume choices, and pictures of their very own Eurovision parties.
An interactive space was built into full-frame scorecard graphics on the BBC Red Button, a great example of how Crowdburst can build viewer involvement in broadcast sport.

For the highly anticipated reveal of Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, Crowdburst successfully channelled the social media explosion surrounding it, managing high volumes of content and playing this out on a ticker format.
The Last Leg
On Channel 4's live topical comedy show, 'The Last Leg', viewers were posed questions ranging from "should we join America and intervene in Syria?" to "Is Josh ginger?" and invited to tweet in their answer responding with either #yes or #no.
Through the poll feature, the Crowdburst interface counts the number of replies in real-time and then displays these results using live play-out graphics systems.
Both the X Factor & The Xtra Factor UK have used Crowdburst to generate live polls and monitor Twitter trends. Crowdburst has been integrated into touchscreen technology, so that presenters can instantly show and discuss social media comments in the studio.
Crowdburst was incorporated into both the ITV4 Tour De France live commentary and the 'Broomwagon' spin-off show. Questions were tweeted in, which the presenters could view instantly on their iPad and respond to, allowing viewers a new insight into the world of cycling.
