After more than two years of work by the "Registration Taskforce" of the TV-Anytime Forum, it has received confirmation that the TV-Anytime CRID will become a RFC - the Internet communities' version of an International Standard.

As well as having a RFC that describes the CRID syntax, the CRID will become an IETF-registered URL prefix, so that a device can know that any URL that begins "crid://" is a TV-Anytime CRID.



The site also provides information about the various working groups of the TV-Anytime Forum and the documents that they are producing, including the specification documents already published by the TV-Anytime Forum.

Finally, this is the place to find details about the forthcoming meetings & events of the TV-Anytime Forum as well as about the member companies of the forum.
