An enriched experience for interactive TV on all devices
ETSI has just released the latest specification on hybrid broadcast broadband TV (HbbTV), TS 102 796 V.1.3.1, which corresponds to HbbTV 2.0. The latest HbbTV release adds support for new capabilities including companion device support, HTML5 user experience and support for advanced video delivery features such as Ultra HD and High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to enhance the consumer experience. The HbbTV standard allows creation of TV services that combine broadcast and over-the-top content. This hybrid broadcast broadband TV standard creates a global open platform as an alternative to proprietary technologies and extends the user experience.
