HbbTV Logo Extends To Consumer Devices

The HbbTV Association, a global initiative aimed at standardising the delivery of broadcast and broadband services through connected TVs and set-top boxes, has announced it will license the HbbTV Logo to consumer electronics manufacturers.
Any vendor selling an HbbTV device will now be able to use the logo on any device to indicate compatibility with the standard.
"Using the HbbTV Logo is an excellent way for consumer device manufacturers to demonstrate HbbTV certification and interoperability," said Klaus Illgner, Chairman, HbbTV Association.
"As the standard continues to gain momentum around the world, our Logo will become more familiar to consumers enjoying a connected television experience based on HbbTV — including compelling catch-up TV, news apps, and other innovative services."
The HbbTV devices must pass the HbbTV Association's Test Suite in order to verify compatibility.
A Certification Body from HbbTV will periodically test HbbTV devices available in the market to ensure that they comply with the applicable specifications.
The standard is already deployed in various European countries including Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, and a large majority of all connected TV sets sold in Western Europe implement the HbbTV standard.
