New Broadcasting Technologies Utilizing Broadband
Providing new services using web-based technologies
Broadcast stations store a lot of information, but the conventional means of searching by keyword only returns a tiny amount of it. In order to find content that would be useful for various services inside and outside a broadcasting station, we are developing technologies to describe and accumulate content related information in the computer processable LODM*1 format.
Hybridcast Technical Specifications ver 2.0*2 will allow viewers to enjoy apps offered by broadcasters and other service providers. The data-hub will support new services incorporating broadcast content and related information.
People can now view programs on their smartphones and other devices. To cater to viewers in this diversified media environment, we are developing ways to access content through the same menus and interfaces regardless of the device being used.
We will work together with non-broadcast service providers in furthering our R&D efforts to promote wider usage of broadcast content.
