The weekend began on Friday night with a quick overview of the17 projects proposed. Following the vote of the participants, only eleven projects remained in contention. Yohann Lepage, a third year apprentice engineering student, and Sullivan Gauville, (year of2010), technical director of BookBeo chose to integrate the “Movie Blind Test” project team led by a student from Insa in Rennes. The concept was simple: “Tired of blind musical tests? Switch to blind video tests on your computer, mobile or tablet and challenge your friends! “.
