HbbTV-Kineton Plugfest 2024 Report

The HbbTV-Kineton Plugfest and HbbTV Testing Event in Milan, Italy, are over. Thank you very much to all attendees! They provided good feedback and took advantage of networking and technical discussions. 33 people from 14 companies attended the Plugfest, an event that provided developers with a wide range of opportunities for interoperability testing of HbbTV technologies for two and a half days at Kineton’s offices in Milan. It was the second developer event in 2024 after the Digital TV Group (DTG) and Deutsche TV-Plattform (DTVP) Plugfest at the DTG in February in London.

Leading TV manufacturers (Hisense, LGE, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and TP Vision) brought their devices and their new software to be tested with developers, broadcasters and platform operators: a lively and professional exciting event.

Collaboration in full swing

Despite the inclement weather, a window of a good weather allow us to enjoy a nice social evening with good food and drinks at Kineton’s office terrace.

The social event

The HbbTV-Kineton Plugfest was followed by the HbbTV Testing Event and the HbbTV Testing Group meetings managed by the HbbTV Testing Group and its Chair Ms. Van Nguyen (Samsung). These two events were open to HbbTV members only. It was the occasion to verify and test new trunks of tests issued in the 2024-2 Test Suite release including TA, DVB-I and voice control tests.

HbbTV and Kineton would like to thank all participants who contributed to the success of the HbbTV-Kineton Plugfest in Milan. See you at next planned events!
