CUSTOMER MHP Implementation Version 1.


Osmosys end-to-end MHP solution proposal

1. Introduction
Osmosys and partners propose to make available to broadcaster all the necessary software for creating, play-out and execution of MHP content. This solution is suitable for use in MHP trials and subsequent deployment. We can as a united group (Osmosys and partners) provide a ‘total systems’ approach that will give a ‘plug & play’ methodology that will allow the path to deployment of an MHP ‘open standard’ enabled system; We would see the following components: 1. 2. 3. 4. Osmosys MHP middleware Osmosys navigator and Tattoo Osmosys SDK Third party MHP play out system

2. Company background
The ‘Digital TV Market’ is completely fragmented with ‘Proprietary Middleware’interactive TV solutions such as: OpenTV, Liberate, MediaHighway, MicrosoftTV, NDSCore, etc. The DVB ( Consortium addressed this issue and published via ETSI, the Open Standard DVB-MHP Specification; this was consequently adopted by CableLabs ( in the USA for the basis of OCAP. Osmosys S.A. was created in order to focus on providing these latest generations of 'Open Standard Middleware Solutions and Services' for the fast growing Interactive TV market. Headquartered in Geneva - Switzerland with its R&D & Customer Care centres in Poland, Osmosys is opening a USA subsidiary in San Jose California and will also expand into Asia in the very near future. Osmosys has been selected by leading companies in the Silicon, CE and STB markets and has completed successful ports on a mix of 'Reference Platforms' and 'Market Implemented' MHP enabled receivers. Osmosys can now boast the most deployed 'Open Standard Middleware' in the world. Osmosys MHP products are deployed in both free to air and pay-tv environments on terrestrial, cable and satellite network.

3. Osmosys MHP solution components
3.1 Osmosys MHP middleware,
This implementation proposed is MHP 1.0.3, which is often considered the fastest MHP and robust version available and is offered at retail stores in Finland, Germany, Belgium and Italy (running on hardware from ADB, Philips, Homecast, Skardin, Opentech, Thomson and several other local brands) as well as the initial field trials in 3 regions of Spain and in Austria). Osmosys middleware is also present on a pay-tv cable network in Belgium. Integration of Osmosys stack on a STB manufacturer is made through the porting of the Osmosys PIL (Platform Independent Layer) which separates the Low Level Drivers and Operating System from the High Level Software (MHP) and to that effect have the possibility to have for the same/similar hardware. Osmosys is also licensing its middleware stacks to the following Silicon Manufacturers in order to make this DVB requirement a reality at the Chip level and to commoditise the MHP and MHP stacks: STMicroelectronics, Broadcom, ATI, IBM, Connexant.


Osmosys Navigator and Tattoo

Osmosys Navigator The Osmosys Navigator operates with the award-winning Osmosys MHP/OCAP middleware to provide a complete software solution for digital receivers. The Osmosys Navigator allows the end-user to intuitively install, operate and manage the receiver.

Examples - Channel Banner and Main Menu screens The Osmosys Navigator can also be easily customised to your specific needs. Without changing a line of code, you can completely alter the look and feel of the Osmosys Navigator and tune its behaviour. For example, the Osmosys Navigator can easily be customised to match existing products on your network or in your product range. As a reliable and thoroughly tested solution it cuts development and support costs to an absolute minimum. Proposed features are:

Channel banner providing while ‘zapping’ channel information, now & next program guide on broadcast services Favourite channels management Extensive and clear Menu System through which the user can manage the receiver Automatic scanning, software upgrade (DVB SSU), Quarter screen TV MHP Applications Manager gives the user control over downloadable applications(xlets)

Osmosys Tattoo Customise the Osmosys NAVIGATOR in minutes without any coding! Osmosys TATTOO is an intuitive and easy to use editing tool for rapid creation of your own look & feel for any Osmosys-powered digital receiver. A user can modify each screen with a few mouse clicks taking advantage of the WYSIWYG visual preview. Use of templates makes the development even faster. The new look & feel can be easily deployed on top of the existing Osmosys NAVIGATOR. The approach delivers dramatic cost reduction for the development and testing phase, and allows excellent time-to-market benefits.

TATOO Editing Environment

Proposed features: • Powerful TATTOO objects allow effective editing and management of screen layouts and graphical elements • Visual Preview speeds-up the development process, bringing excellent results quickly and efficiently • Language Manager makes it easy to create multilingual user interfaces

A set of examples and a tutorial accompanies the TATTOO toolkit

Development process with TATTOO: A typical scenario consists of a few, quick steps. • Preparation of the graphical assets i.e. background images, logos, etc. • Look and feel editing using TATTOO objects • Creation of the appropriate language file(s) • Above components can be then uploaded to the STB to give to the Osmosys NAVIGATOR a new appearance.

TATTOO enables the user to exploit the power of the Osmosys NAVIGATOR

Full OSMOSYS MHP4Win and OCAP4Win bundled with SDK 2.0, enabling emulation of an STB on a PC Dynamic upgrade of SDK within Eclipse thanks to the plug-ins architecture Easily connect to real Set Top Boxes Virtual on-screen RCU for sending commands to a real or emulated STB Simple installation System Requirements: Windows 2000/XP, 1GHz minimum (1.5GHz recommended), 256MB RAM

Osmosys Developer Program OSMOSYS SDK 2.0 is offered with a customer service called “OSMOSYS Developer Program” where developers can benefit from the OSMOSYS technical and business expertise. The developer program proposes 3 types of services: • Information - Applications developers can take advantage of the OSMOSYS information channel and get technical newsletters, access to the developer forum and regularly receive market analysis on the MHP/OCAP market. • Education - training course. Once a month, OSMOSYS provides an MHP or OCAP course for application developers. The courses proposed have different levels from beginner to expert. • Marketing and sales support - Additionally to the information, education and technical support service, OSMOSYS opens its product line - the “OSMOSYS applications portfolio” to third party applications developers who can promote and sell their own interactive developments through the worldwide OSMOSYS sales and marketing channels.

Furthermore Osmosys also propose MHP training sessions. Two types of trainings are proposed: a 2-day MHP Introduction and a 3-day MHP developer workshop.

The MHP Introduction will explore the MHP 1.0.x standard: what’s provided in the MHP interface, what’s possible now and what will be possible in future versions (MHP 1.1 & 2.0). At the end of the two days you will not only have a thorough insight into the architecture and functionality of an MHP-compliant solution, but also get an inside view on a set of real-life case studies. The 3-day MHP developer workshop is oriented to (Java) developers and/or architects who want to start building MHP services. This hands-on track will teach you how to create an Xlet, how to build your own UI components and how you can use and extend the HAVi toolset. Moreover you will learn to write applications which will make full-use of the return-channel architecture of the current range of MHP-STB’s. This workshop is a hands-on practical workshop based around the development of fully working MHP services. Strong emphasis is laid on practical exercises and working examples. Basic knowledge of Java is necessary for the Technical workshop. In case Java knowledge is missing in your team, we also provide a 2-day MHP-oriented Java crash-course that will get you on track to follow the complete MHP workshop. Finally, depending on the importance your organization is considering today MHP, an executive briefing can be given at management level to explain the basics of MHP development. Courses are available in our offices or on an on-site basis at customer’s premises.

Osmosys is working today with various authoring tools such as Cardinal, Ensequence, Emuse, Sublime, TeleAuthor and Prime TV. Such tool is not offered in the following proposal however it can be integrated upon customer request.
