gap in managing broadband content, by offering
the possibility to delivery best-effort A/V content
streaming and xlets/applications
downloading/storing via un-managed OpenInternet broadband IP connection.
Italian broadcasters are developing MHP interactive services
exploiting broadband capabilities
An MHP based Digital TV Platform has been rolled out in Italy. It offers a broad range of
interactive broadcast services and applications since the early birds of DTT launch (2003).
After HD Book 1.0 and Broadband Addendum specifications, hybrid STBs with broadband
capabilities have been launched on retail market in 4Q09, enabling broadcasters to exploit
new services like VoD, catch up TV and true interactive services on DGTVi “Gold label”
compliant devices.
DGTVi broadcasters are going to offer those new services from now on:
• to enhance the traditional viewer experience with a seamless experience between
broadcast and broadband services
• to offer new compelling services in the range of VoD, Catch Up TV, virtual linear channels to
access audiovisual contents anytime on demand
• to enforce and promote a new “broadcast-centric” Over the Top service approach
MHP is enabling compelling new hybrid OTTV services
under Broadcaters control
OTT counterparts of existing catch-up TV services for PCs by Rai (www.rai.tv), Mediaset
(www.video.mediaset.it) and LA7 (www.la7.tv) will be presented very soon.
By the end of 2010 more than 500.000* devices on the market (both STB and iDTV)
will support the new OTTV services, based on MHP, offered by major Italian

– Service Discovery & Selection and other Telco features
– Advanced GUI experience with enhanced graphic features via MHP
(e.g.: support for OpenGL 2.0 and new enhanced graphic engines)
Content Protection: Open approach based on solution common to all platform operators (AES
encryption) and/or multiCAS enhanced solution for Pay-TV operators (CA/DRM). In alternatives Hw
enforced authentication and encryption mechanism are welcome. Requirements: Harmonized DRM solution
under Major approval. Support of different business model: free access streaming with Content Encryption with or
w/o iADV, Premium Pay VoD, Catch up TV, Network Time Shift.
DGTVi members are working in DVB groups to contribute to improve
the specifications of the DVB standards already deployed
• Italian DTT platform is: “Open, Interactive, Interoperable… and now Hybrid.”
• Italian broadcasters are offering new OTT services on the MHP HD “DGTVi gold label” hybrid
access receivers (compliant with HD Book 1.0 plus Broadband Addendum). The first example is
“La 7 On Demand”, a catch up TV service from Telecom Italia Media FTA channel La7. Mediaset
and RAI are going to offer OTT services by the end of 2010.
• DGTVi is very keen in cooperating with DVB groups to have the BA extensions (and beyond)
integrated into DVB-MHP GEM specification by 3Q2010.
• DGTVi / HDFI Joint Technical group is improving the Italian DTT platform with the forthcoming
HD Book 2.0 specifications expected by 3Q2010.
