S3 Group, a global enabler of digital TV content delivery platforms, claims it has has become the first company in the world to launch a programmable solution for automating the testing of unmodified Connected TVs. Available immediately as part of S3 Group’s flagship StormTest Development Centre, the multi-platform, multi-device automated testing suite, these enhancements enable digital TV operators, broadcasters and vendors to improve the quality of their Connected TV applications and services.
“Until now, the testing of apps and services for Connected TVs has been restricted to slow and unreliable manual methods. With this latest addition to our StormTest suite, Connected TVs can now be tested using the same automated scripting and graphical test creation methods that are being used to test STBs and tablets. This enables operators and broadcasters to bring to market new services and apps for Connected TVs faster and more cost-effectively, safe in the knowledge that the Quality of Experience their customers expect is maintained on these new devices,” said Ian Harris, Director of Product Marketing and Sales, TV Technology, S3 Group.
