In this field DG INFSO aims at supporting research and development of open, trusted and interoperable multimedia user platforms and devices. The main focus is notably on platforms used on broadcasting and on delivery of fully interactive services to the home user capabilities. These developments will lead to the concept of "extended home", where the users will enjoy seamless access to a diversity of multimedia content.

Co-ordination with related R&D activities and developments at national and International levels ensures that EU funded R&D efforts are appropriately and efficiently used. At the same time the impact of the research work is "extended" through its co-ordination/interaction with related aspects such as policy, regulation, spectrum, and standardisation . In terms of policy and regulations the following aspects will be addressed in year 2004.
