DTG Testing and Mirifice automated MHEG testing
July 5, 2012
DTG Testing, the digital TV industry’s test house and subsidiary of the Digital TV Group (the industry association for digital TV in the UK), and Mirifice, a specialist in test and monitoring systems for broadcast, have extended their existing partnership to include automated MHEG testing of set-top boxes, recorders and iDTVs.
DTG Testing and Mirifice have developed an automation system for MHEG based on Mirifice’s MiriATE product. The system automates approximately 80 per cent of the core MHEG tests. DTG Testing has also released an MHEG automated test suite for manufacturers to purchase for pre-compliance testing, prior to submission to DTG Testing for final testing.
“DTG Testing is committed to continually enhancing the service we offer to manufacturers.” said Richard Carlton, Associate Director, DTG Testing. “The introduction of MHEG automation will reduce the time taken to test products and provide a more controlled testing environment, ensuring even greater consistency of test results.”
