Title: TV Everywhere
Description: In the recent decades, the emergence of social networks as well as the new IP-based software and hardware infrastructures have been increased in production and broadcast of television programs. Therefore, the need for more interaction with audiences through various platforms such as the second screen, social networks, hybrid television (Hbbtv) and OTT (Over-the-top) services has risen. These conditions need to provide a new architecture of software systems. Following this matter, we are working on the new comprehensive platform that supports these requirements.
Hybrid broadcast broadband TV Trial
Title: Hybrid broadcast broadband TV Trial
Description: We have managed an end-to-end Hybrid broadcast broadband TV Trial ( HbbTV) solution in the R&D Lab and evaluated several hybrid services and different methods of service delivery such as DSM-CC (Digital storage media command and control) and over broadband. We have also run an application development and test environment. In this environment, our experts develop HbbTV apps and test them before transmission. Furthermore, we first verify various brands of HbbTV receivers including: IDTVs and STBs (Set-top boxes) for HbbTV 2.0.1 compliance, and then compare them in terms of latency, at the final stage we offer unified user experience. Last but not least, we plan to produce and develop HbbTV applications. The project includes the most demanded services of interactive TV, providing complementary information to the TV content from broadband and broadcast applications, such as news, weather information, Muslim Prayer Times, EPG program and digital teletext.
Minimum Requirements for the Receiving Equipment of Digital Terrestrial Television Services
Title: Minimum Requirements for the Receiving Equipment of Digital Terrestrial Television Services
Description: The IRIB Recommendation on minimum receiver technical requirements for the reception of DVB-T2 (the second generation of digital terrestrial broadcasting) signal describes the minimum requirements to be met by DVB-T2 IDTVs (Integrated digital TV) and set top boxes in order to facilitate high-quality reception of free-to-air digital terrestrial television services in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The minimum requirements described in this Recommendation are based on Open Standards but the Recommendation also contains specific requirements regarding the conditions in Iran. This document was first issued in 2015 based on the consensus of different parties like IRIB and some of Receiver Manufacturers. In 2018, it was then updated by supporting HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) and the interactive HbbTV 2.0.1 Standard for hybrid devices.
Title: Social TV
Description: Due to development of software systems and the growing popularity of social networks among people, it is necessary for broadcasters to keep themselves updated with their audience's views. Hence, it is essential to provide systems such as social television that allows content providers to receive audience's feedback on TV programs. This helps broadcasters to produce more desirable contents. In the light of this, we are now developing new solutions for social TV.
Title: Cloud Computing
Description: Cloud computing is an important phenomenon in recent years that created a revolution in information storage and processing. Cloud computing in our data centers can be considered as a suitable solution to facilitate and meet our customers' needs. In this context, we are planning to develop a new private cloud platform for our services.
