Package Specifications

Japanese digital broadcasting not only makes modifications and additions to its standard frequently but also has high requirements on the software; therefore it appears to be a reality that even just the development and verification of ARIB-compliant software can be costly & time consuming. As digital broadcast receivers begin to proliferate into every home, each manufacturer should spend their money to enhance their hardware and applications rather than to comply with the standard, which would help differentiate themselves from their competitors. Our middleware is the one that helps you do so.
