A record turnout of more than 20 suppliers representing content and hardware sectors participated in a successful CableLabs-hosted tru2way interoperability event recently. Application developers and hardware manufacturers joined together for a week of laboratory sessions where numerous tru2way and Enhanced TV Binary Interchange Format (EBIF) applications ran across multiple headends, user agents and set-top boxes.

The 22 participating companies were ADB Global, Alcatel-Lucent, Biap, Inc., Cisco Systems, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Ensequence, Flashlight Engineering, Funai, HSN, iCueTV, itaas, Intel, S&T, Softel, Sony Electronics, Starz Entertainment, Time Warner Cable, TVWorks, UniSoft, Universal Electronics, Vidiom Systems, and VividLogic.

More than 35 tru2way and ETV applications were contributed from the interop participants. Examples ranged from test and diagnostic applications to those geared toward a consumer experience such as shopping by remote or customizing the TV viewing experience. CableLabs is planning its next tru2way interoperability event in the fall, and there is no charge to participate.
