Part 1: General
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

A Category D liaison was set up between TC100 and the OPEN IPTV FORUM in 2011. The

OPEN IPTV FORUM was merged with the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television (HbbTV)

Association in 2014.

INTRODUCTION

The IEC 62766 series is based on a series of specifications that was originally developed by

the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF). They specify the user-to-network interface (UNI) for consumer

terminals to access IPTV and open internet multimedia services over managed or non-

managed networks as defined by OIPF.

The Open IPTV Forum (OIPF) IPTV solution provides specifications for an end-to-end

platform for the deployment of IPTV services. Figure 1 shows a high-level logical view of the

scope of the OIPF IPTV solution.

The Open IPTV Forum has developed an end-to-end solution to allow any consumer end-

device, compliant to the Open IPTV Forum specifications, to access enriched and
personalised IPTV services either in a managed or a non-managed network.

To that end, the Open IPTV Forum focuses on standardising the user-to-network interface

(UNI) both for a managed and a non-managed network, as depicted in Figure 1.

Figure 1 – Open IPTV Forum scope

Throughout the specifications, the terms “open Internet” and “unmanaged network” are used

interchangeably to refer to the ability to access any service provider using any access

network provider without any quality of service guarantees.

Managed network IPTV services are provided with QoS guarantees, for example within a

triple-play walled garden.

Open Internet IPTV services are accessed via the Internet, without QoS guarantees, for

example via a portal.

In both cases, IPTV services are accessed via a service platform that provides supporting

facilities for multiple service providers.

Third-party content providers supply media assets that are delivered within the IPTV services.

The Open IPTV Forum (OIPF) specification for consumer terminal function and network

interfaces for access to IPTV and open Internet multimedia services consist of the following

multiple parts:
