The workshop took place on the 29th and 30th March at the premises of IRT. In total 13 hardware and set-top-box manufacturers as well as platform developers took part in the recurring event hosted by the HbbTV consortium.
The purpose was to make prototypes ready for the 2.0 standard, which gave a lot of oppurtunities to test new features such as companion screen features, advert insertion and multi-stream synchronisation. The features were provided by 15 application developers who want to push their developments to the market as soon as possible showing the compelling possibilities of the major standard update. MPAT was also part of the tests and revealed that it is compatible to the new 2.0 prototype devices.
