Implementation of an Interactive Digital TV Java Environment
Robert D. Snelick, Wayne J. Salamon, Alan Mink
The emergence of interactive digital television (DTV) brings about a host of exciting opportunities for broadcasters, content providers, tool developers, and equipment manufacturers. Interactive DTV combines aspects of traditional television and the Internet that inspire applications in e-commerce, targeted advertising, video-on-demand, education and other enhanced viewing services. An enabling technology for applying interactive DTV is being developed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) Digital TV Application Software Environment (DASE) specialist group. This middleware standard environment fosters the interoperability concept of write once, run anywhere applications. An important part in development and deployment of the DASE standard is the existence and availability of an open reference implementation. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is constructing this reference implementation. In addition, NIST is building a set-top box (STB) simulation platform for the implementation to run on. Together these components constitute the NIST/DASE reference platform. We present the design, implementation, and use of the NIST/DASE reference platform that provides a software development environment of the DASE standard for designers, implementers, and content providers.
