New brand identity for the DTV Software Community

Today, we unveiled a new brand identity, including a logo and website for DTVKit, aiming to better illustrate our software community and the organisation’s mission to deliver the very best production-ready DVB software for members and the end user. Since our launch in 2013, our community of members has continued to evolve year on year, and in addition delivers a strong ecosystem of partners to support members with their projects using the shared pool of DVB software components.

DTVKit’s goal is bringing together members that have a mutual interest in developing and maintaining the core building blocks of a broadcast DVB stack, the efforts of the DTVKit community further enhances the development of the six main software components; DVB Core, MHEG Engine, HbbTV Plug-in, CI+ Engine, RDK and Android TV.

As the number of members continues to increase, we look forward to a growing number of collaborative projects running at the same time. With less effort being spent on learning, porting, testing and redeveloping similar solutions, members will be able to free up valuable engineering resources to focus on what is most important – creating value add and differentiation for their customers.

The DTVKit Open Software Foundation Limited is a company ‘limited by guarantee’, which means it has no shareholders and is not legally permitted to make a profit. This construction ensures that DTVKit is run for the benefit of its members and cannot be acquired by another organisation. It is run by representatives of its member companies on the Governing Board and Technical Steering Committee.

The source code which formed the V1.0 release from DTVKit was supplied by Ocean Blue Software Ltd (OBS) by way of a perpetual, irrevocable royalty-free licence. Ocean Blue’s software has been developed over the past ten years and is present in approximately 15 million units globally.

“The new visual identity marks the next phase of our organisation’s growth and primary goal to shape the future of the digital TV industry,” said Amy Cleary, marketing and operations manager, DTVKit.
