Abstract

This paper shows a grid computing architecture called Grid Anywhere which aims at allowing the sharing of the computational resources from set-top boxes (receiver) of an Interactive Digital Television System. This sharing is made in a such a way that the TV broadcaster can use the set-top boxes tuned to it to get a high computational power and the user can also use remote resource of others devices (set-top boxes or personal computers) to increase the performance of the application executed in his receiver.
