RE: Request for external groups for TTWG



I would suggest the following addition:


Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) <> 

This organization develops standards for digital terrestrial television broadcasting. Its standards are currently in use in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South Korea and other Central American and Caribbean countries. It is currently developing its next-generation standard ("ATSC 3.0"), which envisions a universally converged over-the-air and online television environment.

Subject: Request for external groups for TTWG


Web & TV folks, 


The Timed Text Working Group (TTWG) is asking the Web & TV IG for any additional external groups that they should liaise with as part of their new charter [2]. These could be national, regional or international. They could be standards bodies or industry groups. Please reply-all to this email with any candidate suggestions.


Here's the current list in the draft charter:

	External Groups

	ISO/IEC JTC-1/SC-29 WG 11 Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG)

	This group is developing standards for coded representation of digital audio and video, including MPEG-4.

	Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE)

	This organization was founded to advance theory and development in the motion imaging field. SMPTE produced extensions to TTML 1 that are part of SMPTE-TT.

	European Broadcasting Union (EBU)

	EBU is a confederation of national broadcasting organisations, facilitate exchange of audiovisual content. This Group has developed an XML -based format for use in subtitling production and exchange, based on TTML 1.

	Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE)

	DECE is a consortium chartered to develop standards for the digital distribution of premium content.

	DVB Project: Technical Module (DVB-TM) <> 

	The DVB Project develops specifications for digital television systems, which are turned into standards by international standards bodies such as ETSI or CENELEC. It provides a conduit to other relevant standardisation activities including MPEG for the purpose of meeting the objectives of the DVB Project.

Hi Mark,


On Friday in Shenzhen I assigned an action to myself on your behalf (as you're not on the TTWG tracker), which is at [1]. If you have any additions to the external groups in the new draft charter [2] please could you send them to Philippe (CCed), myself and David?





Kind regards,
