IGRS Information Industry Association (IGRS Alliance) is a solid industry resource comprised of a strong network of member alliances. Our long-standing partnerships span numerous industries and are indicative of our efficacy and exemplary performance.
Founded in May 2005 by eight top-ranking Chinese companies: Lenovo, TCL, Greatwall, Hisense, Changhong, Skyworth, Konka, and Intervision, IGRS Information Industry Association has become a leading industry alliance that develops interoperability standards and product compliancy.
Intelligent Grouping and Resource Sharing Standard (IGRS) sets the standard for both an advanced message and data-based exchange technology framework and interface specification for the next generation of network information devices including communication security and content protection mechanisms. IGRS standard enables 3C devices to achieve intelligent grouping, resource sharing and service collaboration; additionally, it constructs new network frameworks consisting of “3C devices + network operation + content applications”. These frameworks are designed to create a positive profit generation model for device manufacturers, network operators and content/application providers alike, as well as to deliver high quality information services and entertainment to end users.
Today, IGRS Standard is the Chinese national 3C-convergence industry standard and has been approved and released as the International Standard by the ISO Central Secretariat. The alliance has grown from its original eight founders to its current 201 members and covers the entire industry chain, including research institutes, telecom equipment manufacturers, network operators, software middleware, chipsets, and terminal device manufacturers.
