LONDON, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Digisoft.tv, a leading global provider of set-top box middleware for the cable, satellite, terrestrial and telecommunications industry, announces the integration of RedKey - the market leading MHEG 5 engine, into its set-top box middleware stack; Iris. The company will offer MHEG as a standard part of its DVB based offering. This will include the interaction channel components for IP based return path including information, commerce and IP video delivery services and the DSM-CC object carousel that offers novel broadcast functionality.
