Sidebar Image

Arreios for ATSC 3.0 is a comprehensive Test Harness and ATSC 3.0 Test Suite, enabling interoperability and conformance testing for ATSC 3.0 digital TV receivers.

Key features include conformance testing for the following technologies widely adopted by ATSC 3.0 standard:

  • 4K Ultra-high Definition, high dynamic range and high frame rate video
  • Next generation immersive AC-4 Audio
  • IMSC1 text and image profile captions
  • ATSC 3.0 DASH, ROUTE & MMT protocols and signalling
  • ATSC 3.0 HTML 5 application environment
  • Advanced emergency alerts

Arreios Test Harness

Arreios Test Harness is the first test harness on the market, designed to test ATSC 3.0 conformance, providing a complete lab test environment for device black box testing.

 Arreios Test Harness hardware and software provides advanced automation of tests, which allows a significant proportion of ATSC 3.0 Test Cases to run unattended. This dramatically reduces the time and costs associated with validation and conformance of ATSC 3.0 standards. 

ATSC 3.0 Test Suite

The ATSC 3.0 suite of test automation tools enable device manufacturers and their supply chain to reliably and efficiently test a range of scenarios to verify conformance and correct implementation for the wide-range of ATSC 3.0 compliant technologies.

Tests are continuously updated with test types covering W3C Web Media API, video playback (ROUTE / DASH), video transition, captions, AC-4 Audio, broadcast audio and interactive apps. Additional tests will be released in these technical areas, with tests for the following also to be added DRM, VP1 Audio Watermark, MMT (MPEG Media Transport), ESG (Electronic Service Guide), DASH features, ad insertions, SHVC, multiple simultaneous PLPs, LDM (layered divisional multiplexing), RSAT (regional service availability table), HFR (high frame rate).
