Digital TV Labs wins OIPF commission

Digital TV Labs has been commissioned by the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF) to develop a test suite and associated test harness to enable the certification of OIPF-conformant IPTV, OTT and hybrid devices.

The Open IPTV Forum enables and accelerates the creation of a mass market for IPTV by defining and publishing free-of-charge standards-based specifications for end-to-end IPTV services of the future.

This is for both “open’ (OTT) services and “managed” IPTV systems, with the tests commissioned from Digital TV Labs designed for both.

The results of the co-operation will be included in the first release of the OIPF Test Suite expected to be available early next year, as well as the second release of the HbbTV Test Suite expected in the second half of 2013.
