Westminster eForum

IPTV, connected televisions and the future set top box - addressing the technical challenges

July 2011

As YouView prepared to launch, and with the new generation of broadband enabled set top boxes and connected televisions set to hit the shelves, this seminar examined the challenges posed by the 'connected home'. Sessions examined the new capabilities and opportunities that are created by connected set top boxes, issues around 3rd party widgets and applications piggy-backing on content providers and, with the imminent launch of the UltraViolet platform in Europe, if closed or open standards are in the long-term interests of the IPTV platform.

Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
