International Standard ISO/IEC 24752 on Universal Remote Console (URC)

This standard [1] was released in Feb. 2008, and should be relevant to the
work of the model-based UI XG.  A core piece of the standard is the "user
interface socket", a specification of an abstract user interface.  The idea
is that a standard-conformant device or service publicly expose one or
multiple user interface sockets and a description of the socket structure
(via the user interface socket description language, as defined in the
standard).  Any concrete user interface can plug into the socket, thus
providing an open platform for user interfaces.


The URC Consortium [2] is a loosely organized group of institutes and
companies interested in the promotion and implementation of the URC
standard.  The URC Consortium is also developing implementation guidelines
and technical reports [3] around the URC standards.


One of these technical reports is the "Universal Control Hub" (UCH), as
specified in http://myurc.org/TR/uch1.0/.  In this profiling of the URC
framework a middleware allows to apply the URC standard to controllers and
devices/services that are not URC-compatible.  See [4] and [5] for recent
papers on UCH.
