Purchase Interactive TV Standards (TR107) by Steven Morris, Anthony Smith-Chaigneau This guide to deploying MHP, OCAP, and JavaTV will help Digital TV developers and managers understand what the application programming interfaces (APIs) do, but just as importantly, it will describe how APIs work and relate to each other at a deeper level. Learn how to spot when something that looks like a good solution to a problem really isn’t. Understand how the many standards that make up MHP fit together, and implement them effectively and quickly. Learn which elements of the standards are needed for digital TV, highlight those elements that are not needed, and explain the special requirements that MHP places on implementations of these standards. By detailing how a team can develop products for both the OCAP and MHP markets, you’ll learn how to leverage your experience with one of these standards into the skills and knowledge needed to work with the critical, related standards.
