Digisoft.tv Announce HbbTV Support For Iris

CORK, Ireland, January 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Digisoft.tv, a leading global provider of set-top box software for the cable, satellite, terrestrial and telecommunications industry, announces the integration of HbbTV, the global standard for hybrid entertainment, to its Iris platform for set-top boxes. The company will offer HbbTV as an open standard component of its DVB/Hybrid offering. Digisoft.tv recently announced record sales of its Iris platform.

Speaking on behalf of Digisoft.tv, Head of Product Development Eoin Shanaghy said, "With Iris, Digisoft's HTML5 platform for next-generation set-top boxes, customers can already build, grow and adapt applications and services using cutting edge technology.  HbbTV membership allows us to ensure compliance with the growing number of HbbTV deployments.  This provides us and our customers with a clear model for hybrid broadcast/broadband application delivery."

"It is a great pleasure for the consortium to welcome Digisoft.tv as a new member", says Dr. Klaus Illgner-Fehns, Chairman of the HbbTV consortium. "With its extensive expertise in interactive TV and set-top box OSs, Digisoft.tv will increase the development and awareness of HbbTV".  

HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) is a new industry standard providing an open and business neutral technology platform that seamlessly combines TV services delivered via broadcast with services delivered via broadband and also enables access to Internet only services for consumers using connected TVs and set-top boxes. The founding members of the HbbTV consortium together with a large group of supporters jointly developed the HbbTV specification to create a global standard for hybrid entertainment services.
