A record turnout of more than 20 suppliers representing content and hardware sectors participated in a successful CableLabs-hosted tru2way interoperability event. Application developers and hardware manufacturers joined together for a week of laboratory sessions where numerous tru2way and Enhanced TV Binary Interchange Format (EBIF) applications ran across multiple headends, user agents and set-top boxes.
The twenty-two participating companies were ADB Global, Alcatel-Lucent, Biap, Cisco Systems, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Ensequence, Flashlight Engineering, Funai, HSN, iCueTV, itaas, Intel, S&T, Softel, Sony Electronics, Starz Entertainment, Time Warner Cable, TVWorks, UniSoft, Universal Electronics, Vidiom Systems, and VividLogic. More than thirty-five tru2way and ETV applications were contributed from the interop participants. Examples ranged from test and diagnostic applications to those geared toward a consumer experience such as shopping by remote or customising the television viewing experience.
