Ocean Blue is pleased to announce it has joined DTVKit as a founding member

Ocean Blue Software have joined DTVKit, the not-for-profit member organisation, as a founding member and has supplied the source code which will form the first software release for DTVKit.

Ocean Blue has licensed its widely deployed DVB Software solution to DTVKit by way of a perpetual, irrevocable royalty free source code licence. Members will benefit from Ocean Blue’s mature software that has already been deployed in tens of millions of devices all over the world, guaranteeing that the V1.0.0 release from DTVKit will be of high commercial quality. These can either be used to implement a receiver as a whole or members can select from the variety of software components available (including DVB Core, MHEG Engine, HbbTV Plug-In and CI+ Engine) and integrate them into existing solutions. The high standard of software will be maintained over time through a system of moderation and change control which will ensure that DTVKit remains a reliable source of software.

Commenting on the creation of DTVKit Kevin Gate, chairman of Ocean Blue Software said “We have taken the bold step of licensing the source code for our range of products to DTVKit which marks a milestone in our strategy of expanding Ocean Blue’s services and support revenues. We have received an incredibly positive reaction from those in the industry we have already talked to and are proud to have other founding members including Broadcom so actively involved.”

Ocean Blue is currently supporting DTVKit and other founding members to develop the necessary infrastructure, processes, and test environment ready for the release of V1.0.0.
