Universally recognised as the ‘How to’ guide for the industry, the new edition supports future interactive services and enables the continuing transition towards HbbTV.
Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG said: “The DTG team thanks all of our Members whose hard work has contributed to D-Book 10. Open, democratic and supportive of public policy, the DTG’s D-Book is continually updated and peer-reviewed by industry experts, to help drive the UK TV market towards innovation and deliver real economic value in our industry. It stipulates the specifications for every new TV and digital terrestrial television (DTT) receiver in the UK and protects both viewer and industry.”
The book, which is based on international standards, continues the UK move towards HbbTV.
“The HbbTV association would like to congratulate DTG on the publication of D-Book 10 and its continued support for HbbTV 2.0.1. We believe the planned development of a code of practice for the implementation of interactive services will greatly benefit the quality of HbbTV services in the UK and beyond,” said Dr Klaus Illgner, chair of the HbbTV Association.
The DTG has published and maintained the D-Book since 1996 and it updates the specification annually to keep apace of the development of UK DTT.
