Features


Form

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.

Layout


Function

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

 


Content

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.
