The HbbTV Association and the French HD Forum will run a symposium for the HbbTV community in Paris next week.

The event, HbbTV in Action, will feature experts from across the world discussing the latest HbbTV accomplishments on a broad range of topics, according to the group.

The symposium will take place at the Espace Landowski, in Boulogne-Billancourt, Paris from October 8-9. Panel sessions will include a hybrid TV countries review and sessions on smart TVs, opoerator boxes, the HbbTV roadmap, HbbTV in the pay TV world and ways of increasing consumer awareness.

“HbbTV has grown from a European initiative to a worldwide standard. We are pleased with the quality and calibre of the organizations coming from all over Europe as well as from Africa and Australia. It is a reflection of the growing international momentum and interest in HbbTV,” said Klaus Illgner, HbbTV chairman, and Regis Saint Girons, president of the French HD Forum.

“One of the key objectives of the HbbTV Association is to bring the latest in hybrid TV services to broadcasters and operators across the world. This is an exciting opportunity for those following and deploying HbbTV to learn more about HbbTV services, case studies and our technology roadmap.”
