The Digital TV Group (DTG), the standards organisation that represents over 100 UK TV companies, has approved HbbTV-based connected TV specifications in the latest version of the D-Book, its digital-terrestrial TV technology specifications.
D-Book 7, which was published in draft earlier this year, defines the critical interoperable coexistence of broadcast and broadband services and devices and has been formally approved by DTG Council and DTG Technical Council. Version 1 of part B of the specification for connected TV products and services has now been published to DTG members.
The DTG said it had worked closely with its members to meet the requirements of the BBC’s HTML applications, including the latest version of the BBC iPlayer, and other broadcaster’s catch-up TV players.
To ensure international harmonisation of standards the DTG said it was liaising with HbbTV, ETSI, the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF) and DECE (Ultraviolet).
