Deliveries Completed for Official HbbTV 2.0 Receiver Test Suite
GENEVA — The HbbTV Association, a global initiative dedicated to providing an open standard for the delivery of broadcast and broadband services through connected TVs and set-top boxes, today announced that it has received all the test material for the first release of a test suite for HbbTV 2.0 implementations.
The current HbbTV test suite (V8.1) is suitable for testing HbbTV 1 and 1.5 products. V9.0 is expected to be available before the end of the summer and will add over 500 new tests covering HbbTV 2.0 functionality. It will also improve coverage of HbbTV 1 and 1.5 functionality in some key areas. This release will be an important step towards enabling interoperability between HbbTV 2.0 services and HbbTV 2.0 devices, which are expected to be introduced in the market starting in 2017. The tests were obtained from two suppliers, Eurofins Digital Testing and RT-RK, and are now being reviewed by volunteers from the HbbTV membership before becoming approved parts of the Test Suite.
The 500 test cases cover all mandatory and some optional features added by HbbTV 2.0 and were carefully selected by experts to test the key use cases for each feature.
“The delivery of these tests is a significant milestone for HbbTV 2.0″ said Klaus Illgner, President of the HbbTV Association. “Through the release of our Test Suite, we seek to help HbbTV products interoperate with services, giving consumers an optimal experience for services that use the new 2.0 spec’s advanced interactivity features.”
