Dutch-based Divitel, an independent system integrator and managed service provider for TV and video, has opened Europe’s first automated TV and Video application lifecycle testlab in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.
The new facility is a high-tech, automated TV and video application lifecycle testlab. The lab was created to assist clients in speeding up time-to-market for their TV and video applications, while ensuring quality of service on an increasingly wide range of end-user devices.
“I founded Divitel 20 years ago this year. I can think of no better way to celebrate two decades of innovation, then adding this high-tech facility to our headquarters,” said Hans Kornmann, CEO and founder of Divitel.
“It perfectly addresses an issue we see many in the TV and video industry struggle with: How do you ensure your service evolves at the speed end-users and technological developments require, without compromising on the quality of experience? How do you launch and operate a service that works everywhere, on every device, with the desired end-user video quality, while maintaining speed and agility? The video testlab enables clients of any size to compete, instead of just survive.”
This new facility combines Divitel’s experience with managed services for TV operators with cutting-edge technology from different vendors, like Witbe – creators of robotised testing- and monitoring software for Quality of Experience on end-user devices – and Agama Technologies – developers of advanced video service quality software. Proprietary tools based on machine learning are set automatically iterate and develop the functionality of the lab as more testing takes place. The new facility is the first of its kind in Europe and has already garnered attention from broadcasters, TV operators and video content owners around the globe.
