Multimedia Home Platform (MHP)

Contributor(s): Adrian Bull

Multimedia Home Platform (MHP) is a digital video broadcasting ( DVB ) standard intended to combine digital television ( DTV ) with the Internet and the World Wide Web. The result will make high-definition television in an interactive, multi-purpose communication network available to consumers and businesses.

The MHP, when fully implemented, will function through cable, fiber optic, and (including satellite) media. Users will be able to browse the Web, watch (and in some cases participate in) television programs, shop online, and enjoy broadband Internet access. The service will be available in three levels: enhanced broadcast, interactive broadcast, and Internet.

The typical MHP installation will employ a so-called set-top box and a television receiver. The standard will also allow the use of a personal computer in place of the television receiver. The MHP standard will be downward-compatible. This will ensure that existing hardware will continue to function as new services are added.
