Ligada iSuite for HbbTV

Sidebar Image

Ligada iSuite for HbbTV is a comprehensive HbbTV Test Harness and set of Test Suites, enabling interoperability, conformance and certification testing for HbbTV hybrid digital TV receivers.

The Ligada iSuite Test Harness features an advanced automation engine, which allows a significant proportion of HbbTV Test Cases (including those in the Official HbbTV Test Suite) to run unattended. This dramatically reduces the time and costs associated with validation and conformance.


Ligada iSuite for HbbTV now provides support for Operator Applications 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.

 Contact us today to join our OpApp Early Access Programme that enables:

  • Running Launcher-based OpApp tests
  • Running Discovery and Installation tests (DNS SRV Discovery, HTTP and ZIP app packages only)
  • Full support for the major new HbbTV Test APIs
  • Running most OpApp tests in HbbTV repository
