HbbTV (Hybrid broadcast broadband TV) is an exciting standards based technology marrying both broadcast video and Internet based media to create exciting new media experiences. The HbbTV Association is tasked with defining HbbTV standards and will be holding the 6th annual HbbTV Symposium in Rome on October 17th and 18th, 2017.

This year’s event features the inaugural HbbTV Awards to honor excellence in HbbTV services as well as individual contributions. The shortlist of potential awardees has been released and we’re happy to see that two customers of ExpressPlay, the German broadcaster ProSieben and the Italian video broadcast platform Tivù, are on the list with a number of HbbTV based services. We wish to extend our congratulations to both of them. It’s exciting to see their efforts recognized and we wish them the best in the final judging.

Intertrust is proud to be a sponsor of the HbbTV Symposium and our CEO Talal Shamoon will be speaking at the event. Also, our friends at the Marlin Developer Community will be co-hosting the HbbTV Awards dinner. If you are attending, we hope to see you in Rome!
