Web & TV convergence [W3C Workshop]

December 19, 2013

W3C announced a Fourth W3C Web and TV Workshop: Web and TV Convergence, 12-13 March 2014, in Munich, Germany. The Workshop is hosted by IRT.

The TV ecosystem is seeing large changes in terms of consumer behavior, creator demographics and technical capabilities. The effect on companies and organizations is profound leading to individual and collaborative efforts to turn challenges into opportunities. As the next generation of challenges arise, this workshop aims to assist market players in two main areas:

  1. Identifying the priorities for Web and television convergence and advising W3C on where to focus its efforts;
  2. Strengthening cooperation between those involved in the development of standards to avoid confusion and duplication of work.

Based on the success of previous similar workshops, we anticipate participation from broadcast and media companies, browser and software vendors (including embedded browsers), cable operators, content developers and providers, IPTV providers, multiple-system operators (MSOs), network providers and telecommunications companies, service vendors of cloud computing, standardization organizations related to Web and TV, television operators (broadcast, cable, satellite) and VOD operators. We intend the workshop to benefit the global media audience by resulting in such developments as new standardization work, best practices and renewed commitments.

W3C membership is not required to participate. The event is open to all, but all participants are required to submit a position paper or statement of interest by 3 February 2014.
