HD Forum releases TNT2.0 specifications v1.1

Among various topics, the HD Forum has worked during the last 2 years on the TNT2.0 project. The goal was to coordinate the launch of HbbTV interactive services in France.

This effort is done in partnership with the HbbTV consortium and led to an upgrade version of HbbTV standard, version 1.5 and a first recommendation for DRM's (MPEG-DASH, Microsoft PlayReady without silverlight, and MARLIN).
