Open IPTV Forum releases HTML5 profile for connected TVs

Industry body the Open IPTV Forum has published a profile of HTML5 and other related web technologies aimed at connected TV services and devices, intended to make it easier for developers to create rich apps and services that work with connected TVs.

The new release describes a common profile based on the latest, stable web technologies that are expected to be implemented by connected TV manufacturers for the creation of rich HTML5 applications, including CSS and DOM3

Jon Piesing of TP Vision, the technical lead of the group that created this specification, said: “This update should enable apps and services for connected TVs to be developed relying on the presence of a coherent and consistent set of up-to-date technologies. It should make it easier to re-use tools and libraries developed for the web when developing for connected TVs.”

The specification can be downloaded here.
