Following the success of the BBC iPlayer, ten years after the launch of digital television, the BBC is proposing plans to standardise ways to deliver online services to television screens over broadband. The good thing about standards in this field is that there are plenty to choose from. There are a number of industry initiatives to enable open standards and interoperability for such services. If you or your organisation would be interested in contributing to a cross-industry forum to establish common basic requirements and specifications, please get in touch.
