Panelists Mull What’s Next for UltraViolet

Panelists Mull What’s Next for UltraViolet | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

Going back a year, when UltraViolet was first launched, Mark Teitell couldn’t have guessed where the service would be today.

 

Now?

 

“So far, so good,” the GM and executive director of the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) said Oct. 17 at Digital Hollywood.

 

Next for UltraViolet is the completion and launch of the service’s common file format (CFF). Once UltraViolet’s CFF is finalized, UltraViolet files downloaded are expected to work across platforms and devices, instead of each retailer having different files for their service.

BBC offers solution for connected TV fragmented market

BBC offers solution for connected TV fragmented market | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

While many connected television devices and displays now support web standards such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript, they invariably differ in their capabilities and conformance to standards. The BBC has developed an abstraction layer to decouple its own applications from these underlying device complexities. The corporation is planning to make its TV Application Layer available to third parties to help stimulate the market for connected television applications.

 

Although the emerging HTML5 specification is often seen as the solution to interoperable web applications, in practice there are many differences in compatibility between devices that claim support for web standards. This is a familiar problem on the web but the fragmentation of different flavours appears to be even more of an issue with consumer electronics products.

 

The BBC TV Application Layer or TAL attempts to deal with the differences between devices, such as remote control key mapping, media player interfaces, networking and storage. In theory this means that the BBC can develop and deploy applications on a well-defined interface without being aware of the specifics and idiosyncrasies of each device.
