DTG offers Freeview Play conformance testing

December 13, 2016

DTG Testing, the industry’s not-for-profit test centre, is now a one-stop-shop for Freeview Play Conformance.

Ranjeet Kaur, Head of DTG Testing said: “Working closely with Freeview product developers every day, we fully understand the value of offering a complete menu of services from a single and simple one-stop-shop. Our new Freeview Play conformance offering means that manufacturers can simply pick and choose what they want to ensure a timely and cost-effective launch. Smart manufacturers understand that their investment in prelaunch independent testing pays dividends over a product’s life by minimising costly in-market support and product returns, not to mention helping to ensure a product that will delight retailers and customers. 2015-2016 industry statistics show that no products passed standard conformance tests on the first test cycle – with 43 per cent of products passing after the second cycle, and all others requiring between 3 and 6 test cycles. We believe our offering saves time and provides real value to the industry.”

Alex Russell, Head of Conformance at Digital UK, added: “With more and more manufacturers adopting Freeview Play it has already become the most widely supported catch-up service in the UK. We’re delighted that the DTG now offers additional testing to make it easier for companies to bring compliant products to market and provide viewers with an even greater choice.”
