back from Devcon 2014

Andrea presentingThe last Ebu Devcon2014 has been really an interesting experience.

Lot's of great guys to talk with and something hot starting from this brainstorming. We are going to see some real stuff out of this, like a HbbTv playout ready to go in a click thanks to Vagrant or similar tools.

Testing and demoing Hbbtv apps has never been so easy!!

Thanks again to Ebu folks for their great hoting. I hope we'll meet again somewhere in Europe.

If you are looking for more feedback on this venue, have a look here at the relevant Twitter feed.

Slashdotted, more or less..

video wallIt seems this Interactive tv is getting frequently on mainstream news, this time from the security point of view..  and OpenCaster is THE key tool there too! ADAPTABILITY, that's what open source and free software is all about.

As more and more sold tv sets are Smart TV and being CONNECTED to the net, they are becoming potential point of attack for exploit. At next Usenix 2014, later in August, the Columbia Network Security Lab is presenting a paper where they show theory and practice of attack surfaces of the connected tv. And Opencaster is key tool for the practice chapter, of course.

The news got on Slashdot too..


Support Forum opening

September 2013: after the great response related to the new Avalpa/Hides product, the USB DVB-T dongle bundle, we are opening a support forum as th main way to give interested people a place where speak freely, exchange questions (and answers) in a more free flow.

Enjoy and slash that creativity about smart tv apps.
