Eutelsat’s Vincent Grivet will remain in post as chairman of the HbbTV Association, following his re-election by its newly appointed steering group on June 21st.

Grivet will serve a further two-year term at HbbTV, which is developing a core standard to meet market requirements, focusing on interoperability to ensure compliance of reception devices with the specifications.
