Singapore Project recommends DVB for IPTV

September 27, 2010

DVB has confirmed that Singapore’s Project NIMS has recommended DVB’s IPTV standards for the country’s future services.

Project NIMS (Next Generation Interactive Multimedia, Applications and Services), a joint initiative by the country’s Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) and Media Development Authority (MDA), concluded  that DVB’s IPTV standards could be used for the fulfilment of its Common Featured STB functional requirements. Both the IDA and MDA have accepted the NIMS Panel recommendation.

DVB achieved this recommendation because its IPTV standards support automatic connection to and configuration of a STB connected to an IP network for necessary Service Discovery and Selection, as well as providing Secure Content Protection and a middleware environment for the provision of a rich interactive service.
