Abstract

This work presents the JiTV (Java Interactive Television) as a proposal of an integrated development platform that can be used for authoring of Digital Interactive Television Programs, discussing its implementation aspects. Among the main requirements of the JiTV, we can put light on description of scenarios using XML and the implementation of interaction controls using Java. In this scenario, the JiTV platform supports the specification of context-awareness aspects, acquiring of contextual data from software agents, building of data carroussel from the both recorded and real-time video and audio streams, tagging of multimedia objects with XML schema, allowing also the information retrieval. Furthermore, context-awareness aspects are being added for providing personalization in the television environment.
