Osmosys launches MHP 1.2 software

Osmosys, a developer of open standards interactive TV solutions, has announced the launch of its MHP 1.2 software.

It provides enhanced TV functionality and help in bridging the worlds of broadcast and IP video.

The solution enables operators to provide next generation TV services and supports advanced features on networks with always-on Ethernet connections, as well as being compatible with terrestrial, satellite, cable and IPTV services.

“This is the first version of MHP that has been developed to specifically enable network operators to deploy sophisticated applications and services across any network,” said Paul Bristow, CTO, Osmosys, in a statement.

“We have responded to operators’ needs and have developed our implementation of the MHP 1.2 standard to provide advanced broadband capabilities that are totally under the control of the network operator.”

MHP 1.2 provides new features including IPTV support, a provision for unbound applications such as caller ID and targeted messaging, Switched Digital Video and other Tru2way / OCAP (the US Cable standard) features.

All Osmosys products have been upgraded to support MHP 1.2.
