The “future TV” discussions in Rennes

November 15, 2011

The W3C/OMWeb team will participate at the upcoming “Recontres INRIA-Industries” event, this Thursday 17 November, in Rennes, France. This joint research-industry event will focus on topics such as: “What new standards to come? What new services to deploy? What opportunities for the 3D TV, the connected TV, and the interactive TV?”. The event programme will cover these topics and more.

Through a talk by François and demos at a booth, OMWeb will report on the W3C Web&TV impressive work initiated a year ago, with 3 workshops around the globe (Tokyo (Sept. 2010), Berlin (Feb. 2011), Hollywood (Sept. 2011)), the creation of a dedicated Interest Group and two task forces: the Home Network Task Force and the Media Pipeline Task Force.

Convergence of Web and TV at NEM Summit 2011

July 28, 2011

For the second year in a row, I — where I stands for François Daoust, part of the OMWeb team — will be pleased to attend and present at the NEM Summit, 27-29 September 2011, in Torino, Italy. Last year, I focused on the HTML5 <video> tag, showing that it is a useful first step to integrate video on the Web, even though challenges remain. The slides Towards Video on the Web with HTML5 I presented back then, as well as the underlying paper are available online.

Thanks to a series of workshops on the convergence of Web and TV (a third workshop is to take place in Hollywood!) and the creation of the Web and TV Interest Group, W3C has been exploring challenges and potential solutions to ensure a successful convergence between Web and TV. The paper I submitted to NEM Summit this year, Adopting HTML5 for Television: Next Steps (PDF), presents key topics discussed in W3C (e.g. home networking scenarii, extensions to HTML5, etc.) and likely next steps from a standardization perspective.

July 27, 2011

While preparing for the third Web and TV Workshop, in Hollywood, California, USA, 19-20 September 2011, you may want to review the discussions of the second workshop held in Berlin in February 2011. The materials of this second workshop have long been publicly available online but note that the proceedings of the Berlin Workshop are now available as a single ready-to-print document (PDF, 20.6MB) which includes the workshop report, minutes, as well as a copy of presented papers and slides.
