The demand for interactive TV services is rapidly increasing. Most of the interactive TV systems are based on the DVB-MHP (digital video broadcast-multimedia home platform) format. Given the unprecedented success of DVD technology and its already established installed base, it is definitely in the interest of manufactures and end-users to be able to play back DVB-MHP iTV content using a Blu-ray player. This paper analyzes the system information differences between the DVB-MHP and Blu-ray standards, and proposes efficient transcoding methods for generating Blu-ray compatible streams from DVB-MHP data.
