We are committed to the stable development of our main software components: DVBCI Plus, HbbTV and MHEG. All of our software components are regularly kept up to date to ensure that members have access to the latest versions.

Compatible with DVB terrestrial, satellite and cable


DVB is our core software; it forms the strong foundations that allow us to continue to expand our solution and enhance our software components regularly to ensure you are receiving the very best end product. Our solution has been crafted to DVB and DTG D-Book standards, and our code has been written in ANSI C programming language. DTVKit is compatible with the following DVB standards: DVB-T/T2, DVB-S/S2, DVB-C and ISDB-T.


HbbTV is an industry standard and a global initiative committed to harmonising the broadcast and broadband delivery of entertainment services to customers through connected TV’s, set-top-boxes and multiscreen devices. The HbbTV Association combines digital broadcasting and internet industry companies, HbbTV has established a standard for the delivery of broadcast TV and broadband TV to the home, through a single UI, resulting in an open platform as an alternative to proprietary technologies. Products and services using the HbbTV standard can operate over different broadcasting technologies, such as satellite, cable, or terrestrial networks.
