ACAP Certification Mark

The The A/101 ATSC Advanced Common Application Platform Standard, Standard is intended firstly to be used by entities writing terminal specifications and/or standards based on ACAP. Secondly, it is intended for developers of applications that use the ACAP functionality and APIs. ACAP aims to ensure interoperability between ACAP applications and different implementations of platforms supporting ACAP applications. An ACAP Application is a collection of information which is processed by an application environment in order to interact with an end-user or otherwise alter the state of the application environment.

ACAP Applications are classified into two categories depending upon whether the initial application content processed is of a procedural or a declarative nature. These categories of applications are referred to as procedural (ACAP-J) and declarative (ACAP-X) applications, respectively.

The ATSC has developed a certification mark for products that comply with the standard.

Manufacturers may use the mark in accordance with the ATSC’s Certification Mark Policy, available online here.

Fees for approved Certified Users:
