The HbbTV Association has released the HbbTV 2.0.2 standard update which supports Ultra HD technologies like High Dynamic Range (HDR) and High Frame Rate (HFR).

hbbtv display 22 feb 2018This update of the second version of the core HbbTV specification enables HbbTV applications to benefit from these technologies delivered as streaming services using MPEG-DASH.

As for HDR, the specification supports both Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantizer (PQ) coding. HFR, which increases the current 50/60 frames per second to 100/120fps, will be especially useful in fast-moving sports content.

Besides, the HbbTV standard update also supports Next Generation Audio (NGA) technologies, which enable object- or scene-based audio for a much more immersive audio experience.

“With this new release of our core specification, we fill a gap in delivering broadband services to connected TVs and set-top boxes,” said Jon Piesing, HbbTV vice chairman. “We enable the use of new, exciting audio and video technologies to deliver HD and 4k content with much better pixel quality to HbbTV-compliant devices.”
