S and T Powering Interactive TV Deployments Worldwide

Posted: 07/04/2011


Booth SU7921: Strategy & Technology (S&T) is to demonstrate how its technologies form a vital part of the interactive TV ecosystem.

S&T has recently announced its RedKey¢3 receiver engine with support for the HbbTV specification. RedKey¢3 integrates the NetFront¢ Browser from ACCESS and associated HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) extensions, as well as S&Ts DSM-CC client.

RedKey¢2 is already a popular choice of manufacturers implementing MHEG functionality in digital TV receivers with more than 14 million units already installed.

Colin Prior, Director of International Sales at S&T said: HbbTV adoption is led by Germany and France with other countries in Europe also now showing an interest. The combination of S&Ts HbbTV and MHEG solutions provide a cost-effective solution for receiver manufacturers. 

RedKey¢3 offers an integrated HbbTV solution, complete with a DSM-CC client and HbbTV signalling, using a similar API to RedKey¢2 to simplify integration and reduce time to market.

Many leading European broadcasters including Canal+, TF1, ARD, RTL and ProSiebenSat.1 are committed to offering HbbTV powered hybrid applications and services. The HbbTV specification is based on existing standards and web technologies including OIPF (Open IPTV Forum), CEA, DVB and W3C. It has been standardised as ETSI TS 102 796.

S&T is also helping to deliver OTT video services to Freeview HD and Freesat set-top boxes and iDTVs (Integrated Digital TVs} as part of the new MHEG Interaction Channel (MHEG-IC). 

The MHEG-IC version of S&T Player runs on receivers conforming to the DTG D-Book 6.2.1 specification, which includes high definition (HD) graphics and AES encryption of streamed media. A version of the S&T Player is also available for the UK Freesat platform as well as for markets using the CI Plus (CI+) standard.

S&T will also be displaying the latest version of its popular TSBroadcaster2 DSM-CC Object/Data Carousel including HbbTV signalling support. TSBroadcaster is already a well-established and highly respected product, used both in North America and Europe, with versions already covering DVB (MHEG-5, HbbTV and MHP), OCAP and ETV platforms. The new TSProcessor and TSMonitor products will also be on show, providing application monitoring and filtering of ETV applications for US cable operators.
