Overview: The Digital Audio Video Council (DAVIC) was a non-profit organization founded in 1994 with the aim of promoting the success of interactive digital audio-visual applications and services by promulgating specifications of open interfaces and protocols that maximise interoperability not only across geographical boundaries but also across diverse applications, services and industries. It had over 222 companies from all sectors of the audio-visual industry as well as a number of government agencies and research organizations. The culminating specification, version 1.5, was a set of additional tool and service definitions opening the road towards the establishment of IP based audiovisual services such as the TV Anytime and TV Anywhere services. *DAVIC closed in 1999.
