1.  Introduction

   The Open IPTV Forum (OIPF) is a pan-industry initiative with the
   purpose of producing end-to-end specifications for IPTV that will
   take the next generation of IPTV into the mass market.  The Forum,
   which is fully open to participation from the communications,
   entertainment, and other relevant industries, will focus on the
   development of specifications that will help streamline and
   accelerate deployments of IPTV technologies and will maximize the
   benefits of IPTV for consumers, network operators, content providers,
   service providers, consumer electronics manufacturers, and home and
   network infrastructure providers.

   The main objective of the Open IPTV Forum is to produce end-to-end
   specifications for IPTV including:

      o  Architecture and interfaces

      o  Network and terminal functionality

      o  Interactive and personalized services
