WARSAW — On the 29th of July 2014, DCC LABS became member of Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV), a global initiative defining specifications that streamline and accelerate deployment of IPTV services.

DCC Labs strive to improve the video user experience for consumers by empowering TV operators with state-of-the-art solutions. As such, for several years DCC LABS had been an active member of Open IPTV Forum (OIPF), an independent organisation defining and publishing free-of-charge, standards-based specifications for end-end IPTV services.

In July 2014 DCC Labs has joined the HbbTV. This global initiative took over the activities of OIPF in June 2014, which broadened its mandate to delineate new standards aimed at harmonizing the broadcast and broadband delivery of entertainment services to the end-consumer.

‘We are very enthusiastic about having joined HbbTV and eager to become an active member of the Association both by following its standards as well as by helping devise new ones. Our products help TV operators keep pace with innovations, launch new services and business models that may open new revenue streams. We strongly believe that our contribution to HbbTV will benefit the entire industry as well as add to our own growth’, says Marek Kiełczewski, DCC LABS CEO.
