Eurofins Digital Testing Announces the Establishment of an HbbTV Application Test Centre with the Support of Samsung Electronics

16/02/2017

Eurofins Digital Testing ( Eurofins') announced today they will develop an HbbTV Application Test Centre in co-operation with Samsung Electronics ( Samsung') for testing HbbTV Applications on HbbTV enabled TVs. HbbTV Applications' are interactive applications that deliver additional functionality such as video-on-demand and are designed to run on TVs compliant with the HbbTV specification. As the lead supporter, Samsung will provide the initial TV platforms for conducting the compatibility tests. These platforms include an enhanced debug mode which allows the gathering of additional data to diagnose issues. Samsung will also provide technical assistance to the program to assist app developers to run their applications on Samsung TVs.

Eurofins, which has offices in Belgium, Hong Kong, Poland and Sweden, will initially build the Test Centre at its office in Bristol, UK. This Test Centre will take responsibility for testing and validating HbbTV Applications provided by app developers (who might be broadcasters or other parties) and will work with these app developers to define the scope of the testing required. This will ensure that the HbbTV applications conform to the HbbTV specification and function correctly on real, deployed devices from the market leading brand.

The establishment of the Test Centre is a clear asset to the HbbTV standard and its growing importance in media and content distribution.

Johan Craeybeckx, Eurofins Digital Testing's CEO commented:

We are delighted to be partnering with Samsung in creating the first independent Test Centre for the testing and verification of HbbTV apps. HbbTV is gaining increasing acceptance with broadcasters around the world and consumers are rapidly engaging with new applications; this new Test Centre gives broadcasters and developers the perfect environment to rigorously test their new applications and ensure their compatibility across a range of platforms prior to their release.

The agreement between Samsung and Eurofins allows for the growth of the Test Centre to include more devices in due course - including those from other manufacturers - to further extend the testing capabilities.
