Open IPTV Forum has signed liaison agreements with the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA), the Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
The organisation says the agreements underline its commitment to use existing and emerging technologies from standards bodies and other industry associations.
“These working relationships with DLNA, DVB and ETSI mean that the Open IPTV Forum can reuse these organizations’ ‘best of class’ specifications,” said Yun Chao Hu, chairman of the Open IPTV Forum. “This ensures an optimal time-to-market for end-to-end implementations that will benefit IPTV consumers. I am really looking forward to the execution of these working relationships”.
Specifications from the DLNA, DVB and ETSI are already included in the Open IPTV Forum Release 1 specifications.
