TARA Systems joins the GLOBAL ITV project funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme. The project's goal is to lay the foundation for a global interoperable TV platform, incl. ISDB-Tb, which covers integrated broadcast and broadband services. In this joint Brazilian-European endeavour, a reliable migration path and a coexistence scenario towards a next-generation hybrid TV platform based on established standards like HbbTV and Ginga will be defined and showcased.
TARA Systems will contribute to the platform specification and will act as the task leader for the GLOBAL ITV set-top box prototype development as well as support the field tests and evaluations based on the previously developed prototype.
The project partners are IRT, A-CING, Fraunhofer, cellnex, Symelar, EBU, TDF, W3C and our Brazilian partners.
