The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will organise an IPTV standards interop demo and showcase between July 20 and July 23, 2010 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The ITU invites manufacturers of set top boxes, content servers and other equipment to showcase their products and to test for interoperability.
ITU’s IPTV standards are being incorporated in product offerings from vendors and service providers around the world. The standards (ITU-T Recommendations) cover a wide range of topics including interactive services, content location, terminal specifications, metadata and QoS.
ITU’s IPTV Global Standards Initiative has created standards that will encourage innovation, mask the complexity of services, guarantee QoS, ensure interoperability and ultimately help players remain competitive.
Testing will take place on July 20-21, with vendors showcasing interoperability to potential customers (broadcasters and content and service providers) on July 22-23.
