Launched in February 2011, the Web and TV Interest Group is a forum for Web and TV technical discussions, aimed to review existing services and technologies as well as new scenarios and identify gaps in the web platform that would prevent these services to be deployed in an effective and interoperable way across devices.
Gaps analysis is the first, yet important, step in creating new standards. The IG Task Forces are in charge of reviewing use cases from the TV community and bringing the identified (potential) gaps as input to one or more W3C Working Groups. TF members follow-up the discussion in the WGs and make sure that the identified use cases are accepted and addressed by WGs (or brought back to the IG for refinement, if needed).
The Web&TV IG is a pretty young group but is growing, with currently more than 123 participants from 44 organizations.
