SOLANO, Andrés et al. Guidelines for Designing Usable Applications in Interactive Digital Television Environments. Ing. Univ. [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.1, pp.103-119. ISSN 0123-2126.

Digital television will have an imminent deployment in the next coming years, and considering that interactivity is one of the main advantages of this kind of systems, it is required a study of the usability of interactive applications in which the user actively participates during the transmission of a television program. Therefore it is necessary to find the best way to design usable applications in interactive Digital Television environments (iTV). This paper presents a set of guidelines supporting design of usable applications in iTV environments, which have been proposed from a set of usability evaluations conducted at the Digital Television Laboratory of the Universidad del Cauca (Colombia).

Keywords : Interactive digital television; usability; guidelines; applications; interactivity; Digital television; digital media.
