CES 2017: Viaccess-Orca selects RT-RK solutions for its Automated Set-Top Box System

RENNES, France — Viaccess-Orca, a visionary partner to content service providers worldwide, announces that it selects RT-RK solutions for its automated set-top box system. Viaccess-Orca intends to use the equipment to improve its testing process, when validating its partners’ hardware and software set-top box products. The system includes a rack for testing of multiple set-top box units which enables parallel execution of different test plans. It provides a single platform for functional, regression, stress and performance testing. Supported by a powerful real-time 4k UHD AV grabber device and a simple user interface/dashboard framework for creation of tests, test plans, and test execution scheduling, the system comprises a powerful A/V for a complete testing of diverse scenarios and set-top box features.

“We always aim at improving the quality of the solutions which are deployed by our customers. Our plan is to systematically run endurance and robustness tests with the RT-RK tool so that we have a sharp status of the solution before any roll-out. We were running those tests with an in-house tool, but thanks to RT-RK, we move onto one of the best-in-class tools,” commented Cédric Hardouin, Executive Vice President of R&D, Viaccess-Orca.

“We are very pleased to support the testing of the excellent Viaccess-Orca products.
