This chapter will introduce a technology framework that can be used to add video conferencing services and live video events on the multimedia home platform (MHP). The solution is based on a bridge between Internet protocol (IP)-networks and digital video broadcasting (DVB) channels in order to stream video that originates from an IP network into the broadcast. The introduction of (iDTV) is completely changing the user experience of television in the living room. In our opinion, the iTV infrastructure lends itself perfectly to support live event broadcasting and video conferencing, both enriched with interactive applications. These services have a vast application domain which includes plain video conferencing but also video surveillance, t-learning, t-health, and user-centric content services. The objective of the framework is to provide basic functionality to the service provider to create these and other innovate services.
