Digital TV Labs, as a leading contributor to the HbbTV Forum and emerging next generation country specific platforms, has played a crucial part in the development of the TNT 2.0 Test Suite.
The TNT 2.0 test suite was commissioned by the HD Forum specifically for the latest French OTT platform for the TNT terrestrial network, and is designed to check conformance to the TNT 2.0 Terminal Specification v1.1.
The Test Suite comprises three main elements:
Tests to check conformance with the HbbTV 1.2.1 profile of DASH. There are over 100 test cases containing streams various representations and bitrates, including checks on the receiver behaviour under varying bandwidth conditions.
Tests to check DRM conformance for both Marlin and Microsoft PlayReady when integrated with HbbTV. These tests include assets streamed via basic HTTP and via DASH, with checks that various playback modes operate correctly when the asset is DRM protected.
Tests to check conformance to certain requirements that are specific to the French TNT 2.0 market. As described in the TNT 2.0 Terminal Specification v1.1.
The TNT 2.0 Test Suite seamlessly works with Digital TV Labs leading Ligada Test Harness, providing manufacturers a single solution for all HbbTV testing and conformance requirements.
