08 Mar 10 -

Set-top and TV supplier Humax has been named as a manufacturer supporter of the Project Canvas initiative.

Humax, which already offers the BBC iPlayer catch-up service on its boxes for free-to-air satellite platform Freesat, welcomed the common standard for Canvas, the BBC-backed over-the-top platform to deliver on-demand content to Freeview and Freesat TVs.

“The common standard is a positive step, guaranteeing the viewer a quality service that is reflective of UK broadcasting standards, delivered on a platform with a trusted name,” said Graham North, commercial director, Humax. “It will also guarantee a viewing experience that is consistent regardless of the hardware or device being used to access the content.”
