                A Uniform Resource Name (URN) Namespace
       for the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) Association

Abstract

   This document describes a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace for
   the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) Association for naming
   persistent resources defined within HbbTV specifications.  Example
   resources include technical documents and specifications, Extensible
   Markup Language (XML) Schemas, classification schemes, XML Document
   Type Definitions (DTDs), namespaces, style sheets, media assets, and
   other types of resources produced or managed by HbbTV.

1.  Introduction

   HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) is a new industry standard
   providing an open and business-neutral technology platform that
   seamlessly combines TV services delivered via broadcast with services
   delivered via broadband and also enables access to Internet-only
   services for consumers using connected TVs and set-top boxes.  The
   founding members of the HbbTV consortium together with a large group
   of supporters jointly developed the HbbTV specification to create a
   global standard for hybrid entertainment services.  Version 1.2.1 of
   this specification was published by ETSI as ETSI TS 102 796 [HbbTV12]
   in November 2012.

   The HbbTV specification is based on existing standards and web
   technologies including the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF), Consumer
   Electronics Association (CEA), Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB), and
   World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).  The standard provides the features
   and functionality required to deliver feature-rich broadcast and
   Internet services.  Utilizing standard Internet technology, it

   enables rapid application development.  It defines minimum
   requirements simplifying the implementation in devices and leaving
   room for differentiation; this limits the investment required by
   consumer electronics manufacturers to build compliant devices.  The
