To build an HbbTV app, the author first defines the layout of a page by alligning empty containers with drag & drop, which can be saved as design templates. Options for overall look & feel of the app are provided as well.



These containers are then filled with specific HbbTV components which provide the functionality. Currently the following components are available in the core-version of MPAT:

  • TextComponents
  • Picture
  • Picture Gallery
  • Audio
  • Video
  • Broadcast Window
  • Menu
  • Launcher
  • Red Button
  • Hotspots
  • Social Media Feed



Either content can be accessed directly from the native WordPress media library or imported from external asset management systems of broadcasters with the help of a plugin. MPAT natively supports transcoding directly into HbbTV-compatible media with the integrated asset converter.
