security specification defines its own profile of X.509 for use in the cable industry.
On January 8, 2008 CableLabs announced the Tru2Way brand for the
platform, including OCAP as the application platform.
uses SCTE standards for the video, transport and various interface requirements, but also adds a requirement for a Java based software interpreter to support the
Application Platform (OCAP). It also requires a decryption system for protected content employing CableCARDs or the proposed software-based Downloadable Conditional Access System (DCAS).
The first test tool to verify compliance of
hosts with the CableCARD one-way single stream specifications, HPNX, was released by SCM and Digital Keystone in 2003. Subsequently the HPNX Pro version, supporting two-way and M-card specifications, was released by Digital Keystone in 2006. The "M-UDCP Device Acceptance Test Plan" published by CableLabs defines how to use the HPNX Pro test tool to validate the
The UPnP AV standards have been referenced in specifications published by other organizations including Digital Living Network Alliance Networked Device Interoperability Guidelines, International Electrotechnical Commission IEC 62481-1, and Cable Television Laboratories
Home Networking Protocol.
Founded in October, 2007 - the
Application Platform (OCAP) EBIF Developer Network (OEDN.net) is an online developer network for the promotion of Interactive Television application and service development on digital cable television.
is a set of hardware and software specifications under development in the United States by CableLabs to "define the next-generation digital consumer device" for the cable television industry. The consumer-facing brand tru2way was introduced in January, 2008.
The first test tool to verify compliance of the CableCARD devices with the
specifications, Host Emulator Tool, and produced by Margi Systems, was first utilized by CableLabs to validate the Scientific Atlanta (Cisco) and Motorola POD devices in 2003 (POD was later renamed to CableCard).
In addition to consumer electronic software components, Digital Keystone, Inc. develops industry-standard test tools that are used to validate content security interoperability for major Pay TV systems worldwide. These tools verify compliance with published content security standards such as
Interactive digital cable ready or iDCR extends DCR. Unlike the DCR standard, iDCR supports interactive customer features such as electronic program guides, pay-per-view and video on demand. Consumer devices which support iDCR also support the new
Application Platform (OCAP) standard developed by CableLabs.
At the present time (circa 2007), the
specification(s) do not make any use of a Java interpreter for the purpose of performing or managing the deployed conditional access (CA) systems, of which there are two primary types: (1) integrated or embedded, and (2) CableCARD based.
CableLabs, the industry’s research and development arm, licenses the brand to cable companies and cable programmers that deliver tru2way applications and services, as well as consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers that build devices that support such applications and services. Use of the mark on CE devices requires CableLabs certification testing for conformance to the tru2way specifications (also known as the
Host 2.1 Specifications).
Interactive features such as video on demand rely on the CableCARD Host device being an
Host Device and have nothing to do with the physical card. This makes the common use of the phrase "CableCARD 2.0" as a requirement for video on demand misleading, since two way services have been provided with the actual cards from the very beginning.
OCAP is the Java based software/middleware portion of the
initiative. OCAP is based on the Globally Executable MHP (GEM)-standard, and was defined by CableLabs. Because OCAP is based on GEM, it has a lot in common with the Multimedia Home Platform (MHP)-standard defined by the DVB project.
Enhanced Television (ETV) is a collection of specifications developed under the
project of CableLabs (Cable Television Laboratories, Inc.) that define an ETV Application consisting of resources (files) adhering to the Enhanced TV Binary Interchange Format (EBIF) content format as well as:
The CableCARD 2.0 specification includes support for #1-4, interactive two-way communications; however it is unknown exactly when CableCARD 2.0 hosts and compatible servers will become available. Future devices which support CableCARD 2.0 are expected to be labeled iDCR "Interactive digital cable ready". Among other requirements, CableCARD 2.0 hosts will be required to provide the
Application Platform (OCAP), also known as Tru2Way, to run programs downloaded from the cable company.
Enhanced TV Binary Interchange Format (EBIF) is a multimedia content format defined by a specification developed under the
project of CableLabs (Cable Television Laboratories, Inc.). The primary purpose of the EBIF content format is to represent an optimized collection of widget and byte code specifications that define one or more multimedia pages, similar to web pages, but specialized for use within an enhanced television or interactive television system.
The Digital Set Top Box profile, specified in JSR 242, is designed for the cable market. Also referred to as OnRamp, this profile is based on a subset of the
Application Platform ("OCAP"), which defines a set of APIs for the development of applications for set-top boxes and similar devices. The profile consists of subsets from the CDC Personal Basis Profile including support for AWT, Xlet, file access, and network APIs, as well as several media-related interfaces from OCAP. The whole profile encompassed 31 Java packages and approximately 1500 APIs.
The American company CableLabs collaborated with DVB for the creation of a new opened standard, which it led to the acceptance of the specification of the standard MHP as base for this standard, the OCAP (
Application Platform), in January, 2002. With MHP in its center OCAP provides a common especificaión for the middleware layer for the systems of cable in the United States. Since in the United States DVB standards are not used, OCAP is based on those parts that are not DVB specific, replacing the rest of DVB specific ones such as DVB IF API. Originally, OCAP was based on the 1.0.0 version of the specification MHP.
devices are available to access encrypted content on U.S. cable systems, but as this is a full DRM system, and not just CA like DVB CI, every piece of hardware and software on the playback chain must be tested and licensed by CableLabs. At current, Windows Media Center is the only DVR software to meet these requirements, and only it, and other software using its recording libraries, can use these devices. In 2010, CableLabs relaxed the DRM restrictions allowing unlicensed devices to record "copy freely" content using these devices, however it is still entirely up to cable operators what content they provide flagged as such.
