NCL stands for Nested Context Language. It is used to create user interfaces or interactive multimedia applications on digital TV devices, such as set-top boxes. NCL isn't really a standalone programming language but often works with the Lua scripting language through the Ginga-NCL framework in Brazil's digital television standard (SBTVD). The framework enables developers to create content that can run on all compliant receivers without needing additional adjustments.
