ATSC approves ACAP standard

The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has approved the Advanced Common Application Platform (ACAP) standard, which provides content creators, broadcasters, cable operators and consumer electronics manufacturers with the technical details necessary for the development of interoperable services and products.

ACAP harmonizes the ATSC DTV Application Software Environment (DASE) Standard with CableLabs’ OCAP specifications, according to ATSC president Mark Richer.

With ACAP, content creators and consumer electronics manufacturers will have a ubiquitous standard for enhanced and interactive services.

ATSC previously published a companion Standard A/96, “Interaction Channel Protocols.” Used in combination with forward broadcast download channels from terrestrial, cable, and satellite networks, these protocols provide a complete interactive system.
