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.

International Standard IEC 62481-6-2 has been prepared under technical area 8: Multimedia

home systems and applications for end-user network IEC technical committee 100: Audio, video

and multimedia systems and equipment.

INTRODUCTION

Consumers are acquiring, viewing, and managing an increasing number of digital media (photos,

music, and video) on devices in the consumer electronics (CE), mobile, and personal computer

(PC) domains. As such, they want to conveniently enjoy the content, regardless of the source,

across different devices and locations in the home. The digital home vision integrates the

Internet, mobile, and broadcast networks through a seamless, interoperable network, which will

provide a unique opportunity for manufacturers and consumers alike. In order to deliver on this

vision, a common set of industry design guidelines is needed that allows vendors to participate

in a growing marketplace, leading to more innovation, simplicity, and value for consumers. This

document serves that purpose and provides vendors with the information needed to build

interoperable networked platforms and devices for the digital home.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 62481-6 specifies guidelines for RVU which is a remote user interface (RUI)

protocol that allows clients to present a full-featured user interface by implementing minimal

functionality, leaving most of the processing to the server. The RVU RUI delivers bitmapped

and/or vector graphic user interface data for a robust, consistent UI experience throughout the

home via thin clients.
