HBB-NEXT - Next Generation Hybrid Media
HBB-NEXT was created to lay the foundations for advanced hybrid multi-user services by building upon existing standards (e.g. HbbTV) and by enhancing them.
The project sought to facilitate the convergence of the broadcast and Internet world by researching user-centred technologies for enriching the TV-viewing experience with social networking, multiple device access, group-tailored content recommendations, as well as the seamless mixing of broadcast content, of complementary Internet content and of user-generated content. Sophisticated technology has been developed for the easy use of content, e.g. advanced synchronisation methods for service components delivered across the Internet and broadcast networks (inter-media synchronisation).
TARA Systems supported the realisation of new features and the creation of prototypes on embedded platform.
The project was successfully completed in 2014.
