The CTV prototype has demonstrated the live TV and VoD services provided to multiple devices connected to the same application platform. The prototype proves the feasibility of building an open-standards-based converged TV solution on existing network and service layer products. The generation networks include the ETSI TISPAN and IPTV solutions in the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF), wherein network operators, the consumer electronics (CE) industry, and network equipment vendors are jointly defining technical specifications for multi-access, multidevice IPTV solutions. Operators are increasingly bundling voice, broadband data, and TV services into triple- and quadruple-play packages to create attractive offerings. The CTV prototype realizes a select set of use cases from the OIPF R2 requirements, that can be demonstrated by all three devices. The implemented cases also prove that using multiple types of devices in a TV solution adds user value.
