Broadcast and On-line Services: Search, select, and rightful use of content on personal storage systems ("TV-Anytime"); Part 9: Phase 2 - Remote Programming
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
The present document is one in a series of Technical Specification documents produced by the TV-Anytime Forum. These documents establish the fundamental specifications for the services, systems and devices that will conform to the TV-Anytime standard, to a level of detail that is implementable for compliant products and services.
TS 102 822-1  and TS 102 822-2  set the context and system architecture in which the standards for Metadata, Content referencing, Bi-directional metadata and Metadata protection are to be implemented in the TV-Anytime environment. TS 102 822-1  provides benchmark business models against which the TV-Anytime system architecture is evaluated to ensure that the specification enables key business applications. TS 102 822-2  presents the TV-Anytime System Architecture and the relationship between Phase 1 and Phase 2 technologies. These first two documents are largely informative, while the remainder of the series is normative.
The present document has been developed during the second phase of TV-Anytime and covers the definition of the interchange data format for the delivery of TV-Anytime metadata and content referencing information from different data sources.
The TV-Anytime Forum has defined a number of data types that can be exchanged between TV-Anytime devices. These include program metadata, content referencing information, and user-centric metadata.
There is an interest to remotely control a PDR from other devices and locations such as a personal computer in the office or a PDA on the move. The present document defines how a mailing service may be used to remotely control a home PDR from outside.
There is also an interest to make use of an NDR (Network Digital Recorder) when the home PDR is not in a position to record content the end-user wants to obtain. The present document defines how to declare an NDR service, how to discover it and how to make use of it to record content to be delivered to the end-user.
