Demo of settings application
The HBB-NEXT showcase demonstrates how users can adjust HbbTV based TV services to suit their own needs. Demonstrating subtitles and signer videos for barrier-free access to television, the new application not only bundles access to these services via a central launcher application but also offers the user personalisation options such adjustable font size, position or background settings. User tests conducted by RBB indicated the need for such options. The showcase is a joint-development by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (RBB), and the Institute of Broadcast Technology (IRT). For Milestone 6 of HBB-NEXT, this application was integrated with THM's new technical solution for the complex synchronisation of broadcast (TV) and IP content (subtitles, signer video). The innovations will be included in HbbTV-standard version 2.0.
