Group of mostly European technology companies are developing a new standard called IP Datacasting standard. Standard would create an unified method to transfer IP-based data in digital broadcast networks (such as digital cable and aerial tv broadcasting networks). Companies behind the standards group include Deutsche Telekom, NTL (UK's biggest digital cable operator), Nokia (Finnish mobile phone giant) and Philips.
Group estimates that they have a ready standard in late 2002 and first real-life applications in early 2003.
