Around 30 delegates attended yesterday’s meeting, which included the first elections for the steering group of HbbTV.
The agenda included reports on the launches of HbbTV services in France, Germany, Spain, Austria and the Netherlands. These hybrid TV services, accessible via the red button on the viewer’s remote control, grant access to catch-up TV services, EPGs, interactive games and other content associated with the programme being watched.
The assembly also considered the budget for the forthcoming year and provided updates on the specification development and proposed testing regime.
The HbbTV consortium gathers together representatives interested in promoting hybrid television using open standards. Its first specification was published in June 2010 and it now comprises around 60 members.
