Would you like to learn more about the technical standard "HbbTV" which connects the so long separated worlds of "television" and "Internet"? Are you already working at evaluating how this standard can profitably be integrated into your entrepreneurial considerations? Or is HbbTV already established in your company, and there are still some remaining questions for the answer of which you would like to receive some support?

Then you can profit from IRT’s know-how. Based on the expert knowledge of our employees in the areas of standardization, application development and conformance testing, IRT is organizing the intensive seminar in English language on the technical basics of HbbTV, including the latest information on HbbTV 2, Second Screen integration and advertising.

It is important to us that you can apply your newly gained expertise later on also in practice. We will not only combine the theoretical fundamentals with live demonstrations of services and equipment, but also deal with your individual questions. Therefore, the number of participants is limited to 17 persons. The two-day event is structured in an overview on HbbTV and a deep insight into the application development. Booking just one particular day is possible.

The intensive seminar addresses content providers, broadcasters, network providers and application developers with related technical background knowledge.
