Divitel , an independent system integrator for professional media solutions, has confirmed their delivery of an HbbTV system to SBS Broadcasting.
The HbbTV system supplied by Divitel is the first production play-out system that goes live in the Netherlands and thus fits into the strategy of SBS to use HbbTV as the standard for hybrid solutions. SBS earlier announced their plans to start offering HbbTV services from Q2 2012.
Josbert van Rooijen, Manager Broadcast & IT at SBS, outlines: “HbbTV is the standardisation for applications on Connected TVs and other hybrid devices. Together with all market players we strive to get HbbTV widely introduced. Divitel has an extremely widespread knowledge of the European cable and broadcast market and thus a good sparring partner for SBS to think about this development.”
