Overview

This book shows how digital interactive television (digiTV) will affect the relationship between the broadcaster and the consumer. Standardization processes, technological paradigms, and application development issues are discussed and emerging applications, innovations, and designs for the future described in detail. The triangle of content, end-user, and technology is conceptualized to envision and survey the services that will be major new elements in the world of digital interactive television. From the technical side, eXtensible Markup Language (XML)-based metadata standards are essential in realizing these novel ideas. Applications and use-scenarios are introduced, clearly showing, among other topics, conceptual requirements and metadata models, the metadata subsets applicable due to resource limitations, and the metadata aspects needed for nonlinear content viewing. Digital Interactive TV and Metadata gives a broad and detailed, visionary and technical overview useful for graduates, engineers, and scientists, and, last but not least, decision-makers in the broadcasting industry.
