Abstract
In the age of digital media, the Internet is the most important medium to distribute all kinds of information and to provide interactive services. Nevertheless, thanks to the advancing digitalization of the broadcast world also the seeming old-fashioned medium television is suited to provide such services to the users in a living room scenario. Based on broadcast technologies manifold kinds of information services can be realized for usage with an ordinary TV set. For more interactive experience adequate equipped set-top boxes are required, possibly combined with individual interaction channels. An overview is given of the ongoing research project Information services and interactive services on CATV networks with focus on technologies for small and medium-sized CATV networks in cities and communities, hotels or companies. The purpose is to present the overall workflow, the system architecture and its components withfocus on the content authoring and the content server.
