ITU Standards Webinar

Light Reading will be holding a webinar on May 7 on open standards for IPTV. ITU-T IPTV experts Ghassem Koleyni and Simon Jones will lead the webinar.

This is an important subject and I plan to attend. I spoke to a UK interactive TV middleware provider at NAB who explained to me how standards have separated the application from its rendering. The set-top box manufacturer can select one of several middleware packages that displays the displays built by the broadcaster. Bringing a similar architecture to Telco IPTV services could open up the Telco IPTV architecture.
