At DTVKit, we enable the joint development of a shared pool of software components, which includes DVB, Android TV, RDK, CI Plus, HbbTV and MHEG. DTVKit operates a collaborative royalty-free business model supported by member subscriptions. Collaborating across the consumer electronics industry, DTVKit benefits from a diverse range of companies including SoC, semiconductor, 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 and cannot be acquired by another organisation. 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 DVB is the core focus of everything that we do. Over the past five years, the DTVKit software has advanced rapidly and is continuing to add and develop the core software components further. We are also dedicated to the ongoing developments within the Digital TV industry to ensure that our members have the latest software.
