Digital TV Labs to Become First Approved Lab for Malaysian DTT HbbTV Receivers

Media and device testing specialists, Digital TV Labs has received official accreditation from the Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) to become the first lab facility for the Malaysian Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) Broadcast Service Receiver Specification, including the interactive HbbTV profile.

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) mandates Type Approval (TA) certification for imported digital TV devices and has assigned SIRIM the authority to enforce these rules, so that all imported DTV devices meet the Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcast Service Receiver Specification (SKMM MTSFB TC T004).

Digital TV Labs is ISO17025 accredited to perform the DVB-T2 and HbbTV tests that conform to the SKMM MTSFB TC T004 specification. Testing time is minimised by using the automated features of the Ligada iSuite for HbbTV test suite and test harness. The new DVB-T2 Malaysian DTT network is being rolled out by MyTV Broadcasting Sdn Bhd during 2015.

Andy Hickman, CEO of Digital TV Labs commented that: “We have a long experience of providing DTT receiver conformance testing services globally for a number of networks”, he added that “our Ligada iSuite HbbTV tool suite enables our conformance testing services for the UK, New Zealand, Australian, Spanish and now Malaysian HbbTV roll-outs.”

This latest offering further extends Digital TV Labs’ portfolio of testing products and services designed specifically to meet the requirements of the DTT/HbbTV industry.
