At DTVKit, we enable the joint development of a shared pool of software components, which includes DVB, HbbTV, and CI Plus. We operate a collaborative royalty-free business model supported by member subscriptions. Collaborating across the consumer electronics industry, DTVKit benefits from a diverse range of members including SoC, OEM’s, OTT, CA vendors, set-top-box makers, and DTV manufacturers. 

Founded in 2013

Our story began when Ocean Blue Software founded us in 2013. Our ambition since then has been to shape the future of the digital TV industry. 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. DTVKit is run for the benefit of its members. It is run by the representatives of its member companies on the Governing Board and Technical Steering Committee.

The future and beyond

Our ongoing commitment to providing the very best production-ready software is the core focus of everything we do. Over the past five years, the DTVKit software has advanced rapidly and is continuing to add and develop the core DVB software components further. We are also dedicated to other ongoing developments within the Digital TV industry including RDK and AndroidTV platforms.
