Ocean Blue powers interactivity for Freeview HD

May 25, 2010

Digital TV software specialist Ocean Blue Software has announced compliance of its mature MHEG-5 engine, Voyager, with the UK’s specification for DVB-T2 Freeview HD receivers. The development utilises the enhanced graphics capabilities of HD-ready televisions during interactive “red button” sessions, giving consumers an enhanced viewing experience.

Ocean Blue’s MHEG-5 HD engine has been fully compliance-tested to the DTG D Book version 6.2, which introduces the use of JPEG bitmaps, AAC audio (streams and clips) and improved resolution and colour depth that will all enhance the audio / visual experience. Additional changes to graphics have been made to ensure that any up scaling of SD MHEG-5 applications to HD generates a high quality image on HD graphics planes.
