IBC 2010 – Hall 2, Stand C27. Digital TV Labs, the official testing centre for CI Plus is launching a CI Plus test tool for use by manufacturers. The CI Plus Test Tool has been designed to assist in the development, testing and debugging of CI Plus implementations on host receivers. The objective is to allow manufacturers to streamline the build process and reduce time by bringing pre-validated product to Digital TV Labs for certification.
CI Plus was developed as the successor to the DVB Common Interface, improving security, and allowing conditional access modules to be plugged in directly to a TV display. Over 20 operators have already adopted it.
Digital TV Labs is now offering bespoke CI Plus conformance regimes to ensure that all aspects of a receiver product – typically IDTVs – adhere to that specific operator’s network requirements. The company is also running testing services for Freeview Australia and Freeview HD.
Also on show will be the Evora iSuite DVB Test Framework covering DVB-T/C/S across 28 countries, Digital TV Wiki, Pan EU Reference Book and RF Capture Test Suite.
