Second, we have added Channel API in the discussion part and made a link to the Terminal T/F wiki.

Dear SH

Excellent reminder. Would you mind summarizing it and/or linking it to the wiki page setup by Daniel [1] ?

Thanks!

Dear All !

We (ETRI) are interested in participating in the Tuner API (or Channel
API) CG group.

One year ago, we have made a proposal in the Terminal T/F
(http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/Terminal), entitled 1. Channel.

This draft text describes requirement for controlling the channels
such as channel identifier, getChannel, etc.

I think we can use these contents as part of the discussion in the new
CG group.

Since we have a domestic standard regarding channel control for
web-based smart TV platform,

I think we can provide some inputs to the CG works.

In the previous mail
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-web-and-tv/2013Oct/0029.ht

ml,
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-web-and-tv/2013Oct/0031.htm

l), we have made a survey on related specifications on tuner control
and channel identification.

I think this survey can be revisited.

Sung Hei Kim, Wook Hyun.

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
