“TV Profile” becomes “Media Profile”

After some discussion the IG decided to rename the “TV Profile” in “Web Media Profile”. The reason for this renaming is to make it clear that the profile describes what is needed for video services on any device, not just on TV-sets or STB.

The renaming is also an attempt not to exclude from this discussion companies that are not traditionally identifying themselves as “TV companies” but that are still interested in a stable reference profile to rely on when writing interactive video services for the web.

Take a look at the latest draft of the Media Profile.
