TARA Systems contributes to the HbbTV 2.0 Operator Extension

The HbbTV 2.0 Operator Applications working group started their activities with a face-to-face meeting in May 2016 in London. We from TARA Systems participated at this meeting and also at the bi-weekly conference calls that are currently established.

The goal of the Operator Application working group is defining the mechanisms of how a network operator can provide HbbTV applications that extend or replace parts of the native TV User Interface. This allows a network operator to provide additional services and a uniform look and feel on any TV device based on HbbTV technology. Furthermore, this extension is intended to keep the compatibility to HbbTV applications provided by the broadcaster. We will continue to contribute our expertise to reach this goal.
