                  Peter Bridger, from Avon and
                  Somerset Police –

                  “Within two working days I had
                  finished development of seven
                  plug-ins that link into the
                  various systems and live
                  information available from our
                  website.

                  I'm proud to have extended
                  our services onto digital TV in a
                  way that it will automatically
                  keep them up to date without
                  any further time or effort.

                  Development was very straight
                  forwards and rewarding, I
                  found it a nice break from
                  working on more elaborate
                  systems.”
So what exactly is a Plugin?


  Forget „TV & Mobile‟ for a moment ….

  • It‟s an easy way for two computers to transact
  • A plugin is a simple web application that „speaks‟ XML rather than HTML
  • You can forget about normal concerns of a web application like
       Colours
       Themes
       Layouts
  ….. the DigiTV Starter Kit handles all of these for each Channel.
  • You just have to decide on content, simple links and menu buttons
  • A plugin can be developed and hosted by the Plugin Partner or DigiTV
