Enhance Digital Television with Interactive Web Services
Espial® BML Browser (based on WebKit) is a rendering engine software development kit designed to handle the unique characteristics of the Broadcast Markup Language (BML). Espial BML Browser's technology is built on the Espial Portability Engine and is portable across devices which allows it to support a wide range of market segments. It is an ideal platform for enabling media and information convergence in digital TV, GUIs and web browsing for your cell phone line and dynamic information feeds for your smart Internet device.
In 2003, the Association of Radio Industries and Businesses (ARIB) specified use of BML for content that enhances digital broadcast television (ISDB in Japan).

The scope of this markup language is not limited to TV - there is work underway to bring this revolutionary new approach to program delivery to the mobile and smart devices industries.
