Sapporo press release


Sapporo, JP, 10th July 2014 – The international Digital Media Project (DMP) announces the specification areas to be covered by its new programme of work.

The DMP new series of DMP specifications aims to define a comprehensive system view of media services that are based on a main broadcasting service supplemented by interactive and personalised services delivered via the internet. The specification will include a general model of Hybrid-Delivery Media Services (HDMS) and their stakeholders, HDMS requirements, system-wide interfaces and user application interfaces.

In Sapporo substantial input was received in response to the DMP Call for Proposals issued at the 37th DMP General Assembly in Valencia. However, DMP members have been asked to bring more contributions to the next DMP General Assembly (GA39) in Strasbourg, FR (25th October 2014) in order to comply with the time line of the HDMS work plan of 24 months with a major milestone after 12 months.

The Digital Media Project was chartered as a non-profit organisation on 1st December 2003 in Geneva, Switzerland, continuing the visionary work of the Digital Media Manifesto. Its mission is to promote the successful development, deployment, and use of digital media, while safeguarding the rights of creators and rights holders to exploit their works, the wishes of end users to enjoy fully the benefits of digital media, and the interests of value-chain players providing products and services.
