I agree with your point of view. But I think it isn't necessary to go very far into the details of device support  (GPIO, detection by camera, NFC ...) because it falls more in the spectrum of Web App Runtime (Firefox OS, Tizen, Windows 8, ...) or Browser with WebIDL dedicated (http://dev.webinos.org/specifications/draft/nfc.html, https://developer.tizen.org/help/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.tizen.web.device.apireference%2Ftizen%2Fnfc.html ,...). Reference would be enough, no ?

 

About proprietary technologies/runtimes, I think it isn't really topical because the tendency of ISVs ( digital signage  oriented) is to design a web based middleware or use it. The scope of the specification seems very good….

 

 

Sincerly,

Franck Dupin

Hi John,

 

The first sentence is originally  in the doc.

 <http://futomi.github.io/Web-based_Signage_Player_Core_Profile/#web-based_signage> http://futomi.github.io/Web-based_Signage_Player_Core_Profile/#web-based_signage

I wrote it. I think he just copied it.

Though I don't know Satoru's intention,

my intention is excluding proprietary technologies, such as Flash, Silverlight, Visual Basic, Action Script, etc.

I don't exclude the content consists of interactivity components using hardware devices if they are controled using JavaScript.

 

Cheers,

Futomi
