scope:

This Recommendation defines three categories of STB to support the combination of various kinds of content distribution schemes including RF-based and IP-based networks. It also specifies STB components and interfaces based on the architecture defined in [ITU-T J.290], [ITU-T J.291] and [ITU-T J.292]. This Recommendation further describes a configurable approach in order to support the region-specific content distribution systems. This Recommendation describes interfaces and behaviours of the components that constitute the STB in terms of physical issues, protocols, operating system, software platform, user interfaces, and so on.

In addition, this Recommendation is applicable not only to an external independent box implementation (i.e., STB) but also to other approaches such as TV panel-embedded implementation.

NOTE 1 - This Recommendation covers the existing content distribution systems including cable TV and IPTV at the time of publication, is subject to modification when a new content distribution system such as NGN-based IPTV is specified and available.

NOTE 2 - The structure and content of this Recommendation have been organized for ease of use by those familiar with the original source material; as such, the usual style of ITU-T recommendations has not been applied.
