RE: egBox - a prototype HTML5 based set top box


Cool. Is this project open-sourced too? Is there a web site to read more information, including architectural design?

Hello everyone,

My team at the BBC just shared information on a recent project aiming to build a (physical) TV prototyping platform using HTML5 and open standards.

The project is called egBox and you can read about it here:

The project will explore a number of topics relevant to this group, such as tuner control within an HTML5 application layer, synchronization of applications and media stream, and so on.

I am certain this is not the only such effort - I'd encourage you to share other similar project you may know of or be involved in.
