Objet : Call for Volunteer to Drive the Initiative of Tuner API (or Channel Control API) Community Group

Hello team,

We discussed Tuner API CG initiative in the CC this morning. Giri from Qualcomm indicated that we need to act fast if we want the technical specification to be reused by other SDOs and the industry. This is because some other SDOs, such as HbbTV, is developing its own specification of channel control. And some projects such as EU-funded webinos project [1] have also developed its TV Control API [2].

Daniel has created a wiki page for the discussion of initiating this Tuner API (or Channel Control API) Community Group. In essence, we need:

-          5 supporters, which we believed we already have

-          Name of the Group: there are several suggestions, such as TV Control API, TV Channel API, Channel Control API, etc. Considering the scope of API is not limited to broadcasting but also needs to cover all types of media sources, Channel Control API seems more appropriate. But it needs to be discussed and finalized

-          Scope of Work: an initial scope of work is highly encouraged

-          A Chair to lead the group and drive the result for the sake of quick time-to-market as Giri indicated above.

Thus we are calling for volunteer to drive the initiative of this Tuner API (or Channel Control) CG, i.e.:

-          To finalize the name of the group

-          To drive the initial scope of work; and

-          To assume the leadership and drive the result of the Channel Control API Specification for the quick time-to-market

Please let the group know if you are interested in driving this initiative.

This closes my action item 191.

Thank you
