Bespoke Test Suite Authoring

Operators may use optional features within the HbbTV specification or need additional test coverage over and above the official HbbTV test suite. As the most experienced HbbTV test case authoring team, building test suites for the French TNT2.0, Spanish TDT Hibrida, New Zealand Freeview Plus, Australian Freeview Plus, NorDig and the HbbTV2.0 powered UK Freeview Play platforms. We work closely with operators to build additional test cases and automate them within the highly popular Ligada iSuite test harness environment. As Ligada iSuite also supports HTML 5, we can also build test cases for proprietary JavaScript API extensions.

HbbTV Device Test Tools and Report Validation Tools

We can assist operators and manufacturers to build end-to-end systems HbbTV testing capability in-house, including DRM validation using the Ligada iSuite automated test framework. For platform operators or other organisations that accept manufacturer's HbbTV test reports as part of an approval process we provide free-of-charge the Eurofins HbbTV Test Report Validation Tool which can ensure these complex files are valid pass reports. 

HbbTV Play Out Validation Service

Eurofins Digital Testing can independently validate the HbbTV streams against the HbbTV specification. Additionally, using our large collection of HbbTV receivers we can test real-world interoperability.

Support for Operator Application Testing 

Operator applications are like HbbTV applications, but with more privileges, to the extent they can completely replace the terminal user interface. Operator applications will coexist with regular HbbTV applications and bilateral agreements between operators and manufacturers will determine the level of privileges granted to them for a given terminal.
