So, what is the outlook for the TVOS system? Why can he be welcomed by the broadcasting and TV industry? Through TVOS market prospect analysis and technical scheme introduction, believe professional you can find a satisfactory answer.

Under the global trend of intellectualization, China’s radio and television companies are able to carry intelligent services such as multi-screen interaction and multi-screen integration to meet the “4A” requirement. The Science and Technology Division of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television organizes research institutes, equipment developers, network operators, etc. 17 units established the TVOS cooperation and development team in March 2012, and officially released the 1.0 version at the end of 2013, but now they are in full swing in the development of version 2.0.

At present, the smart operating systems that test water in the smart TV field are IOS, Android, MeeGo, Tizen, etc. The most competitive one is the Android operating system dominated by the US Google Corporation. In the field of smart TVs, there have been a number of smart TVs based on Android's deep customization, such as millet TV, LeTV, and so on. If smart TVs are occupied by foreign non-controllable and controllable operating systems, they will seriously threaten the country’s cultural and information security.

The TVOS came into being under the background of this era. He naturally has the advantages of security, controllability, and independent intellectual property rights. The independent intellectual property rights are very important. Many people in the industry will compare TVOS with Android and think that Android is a free open operating system. In fact, Android is not truly “free”. Microsoft started with individual terminal manufacturers in 2010. The launch of the Android phone LICENSE charges, only in 2013, Microsoft received LICENSE fees from mobile phone terminal manufacturers reached 1.6 billion. We know that TVOS is geared to TV screens and is related to our hundreds of millions of families. Without China's own intellectual property rights, the entire industry chain will be seriously threatened in the future competition. SARFT will look far ahead and integrate the industrial chain to build TVOS. From a higher level to avoid the future of the broadcasting industry.

TVOS has the following features in terms of technology.

(1) Naturally built "digital genes" supporting digital TV services

TVOS will support the "genes" of digital TVs in the smart operating system kernel, which is well integrated with the smart operating system and becomes an indispensable component of the smart operating system. The digital TV function solution of TVOS is shown in Figure 15.

(2) Support DCAS for leveling content protection

The receiving terminal can download through the DCAS client software to implement flexible switching between different DCAS system terminals so as to achieve horizontal service protection level. TVOS takes into account DCAS support from the initial architectural design, implements CA components, and supports DCAS and traditional CA.

(3) Architecture of Java Ecology and Web Ecology

Java applications focus on logical operations, web applications focus on information presentation, and TVOS provides an execution environment that supports both applications. Different from Android, TVOS provides a Java ecological and Web ecological architecture. The existence of the Web execution environment does not depend on the Java environment. The solution of the TVOS execution environment for TVOS is shown in Figure 16.

(4) TVM environment supports J2ME applications

TVOS has absorbed the advantages of Dalvik virtual machines, and in order to protect operators' early investment, Dalvik virtual machines can execute Java applications based on J2ME specifications. TVOS implements TVM (Television Virtual Machine), transforms Dalvik's core Java library, complements the J2MEPBP/FP/CDC library, and provides conversion tools for converting J2ME.class files to Dalvik.dex files and J2ME.jar packages. Convert to .apk package; J2ME application .jar package can be statically converted into .apk package on the front end side, and can also be dynamically converted into .apk package on the terminal side. Finally, the dalvik virtual machine executes .dex files.

(5) Java application framework "gasket" mechanism TVOS uses a "gasket" mechanism to achieve compatibility with Android applications, compatible with a large number of existing Android applications. If you need to be compatible with other platforms in the future, you can also use the "shimming" mechanism to achieve compatibility. The principle of the shim mechanism is shown in Figure 17.

Figure 15 TVOS "gasket" mechanism
(6) Java service code is refactored in C++ to improve operating efficiency

In the large-screen application scenario of smart TVs, the execution efficiency of applications has a great influence on the user experience. Therefore, the newly added functional components of TVOS are directly implemented in C/C++ language, and the functional components imported from Android are adopted. C/C++ language refactoring. The use of native C/C++ to implement background service components greatly improves the operating efficiency of TVOS.

In summary, TVOS is a built-in operating system of digital TV “genes”. Digital TV-related functional components can be tightly coupled with other functional components of the system and work collaboratively and efficiently. The “shimming” mechanism is proposed to achieve compatibility with other platform applications. , Has a certain openness in the software architecture; proposed a Java application execution environment such as TVM, and the application framework fully implements GY/T267-2012 "Negative Next Generation Broadcast and Television Network (NGB) Terminal Middleware Technical Specification", supporting the early adoption of J2ME. Digital TV applications compliant with NGB middleware standards have protected operators' existing business deployments and investments; functional components are all implemented using C/C++ and operating efficiency is more efficient than Java.
