On the grounds of media sharing in social networks, visualisation mash-ups and early hypertext idea of associative “trails”, the opportunity for a new system to explore and enjoy connections among mainly linear media is devised. A novel system called VERTIGO is to be crafted to tackle the current limitations in media consumption across different contexts. On the end-user side, VERTIGO would provide a context-aware, personalised and proactive dashboard with innovative discovery and interaction capabilities; on the enterprise side, media professionals would gain access to a common platform enabling new collaboration models in the value network.
