It was formed in Newport Beach, California, USA, on 27-29 September 1999 after DAVIC was closed down. It was wound up on 27th July 2005 following the publication of rfc 4078 (reference: http://www.tv-anytime.org/).
Its first specifications were published by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) on August 1 2003 as TS 102 822-1 'Broadcast and On-line Services: Search, select, and rightful use of content on personal storage systems ("TV-Anytime")'. RFC 4074 (The TV-Anytime Content Reference Identifier (CRID)) was published in May 2005.
TV-Anytime has more than 60 member companies, which include European (BBC, BSkyB, Canal+ Technologies, Disney,EBU, France Telecom, Nokia, Philips, Thomson) and Asian (ETRI,KETI,NHK, NTT, Dentsu, Hakuhodo, Nippon TV, Sony, Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba) companies and organizations, as well as USA members such as Motorola, Microsoft, and Nielsen.
While there seems to be a strong interest in adopting the TV-Anytime specifications, among cable and satellite broadcasters, this specification has yet to be deployed in a practice. As opposed to the alternative metadata specifications, by American CableLabs, that have been deployed in the US for several years.
A licensing program for TV-Anytime is offered through Via Licensing Corporation. www.vialicensing.com.
