News from Aug. 29, 2011

Fraunhofer FOKUS released a HbbTV and OIPF Testing Suite. The solution offers a comprehensive tool that supports both, the product development process for manufacturers of new hybrid TV sets and set-top-boxes, as well as providers of CE-HTML and HbbTV applications in the application and portal development.
Internet-enabled TV sets and set-top-boxes take the CE market by assault. Today almost any device is shipped with internet capabilities. Simultaneously, the number of devices and different versions of hard- and software is growing rapidly. This fosters the demand for interoperability, standard compliance and builds the basis to display and execute TV applications correctly. Fraunhofer FOKUS addresses this demand by providing the FOKUS HbbTV and OIPF Testing Suite. The solution offers a comprehensive tool that supports both, the product development process for manufacturers of new hybrid TV sets and set-top-boxes, as well as providers of CE-HTML and HbbTV applications in the application and portal development. In addition to standard conformance testing on HbbTV and Open IPTV Forum (OIPF), the system allows the testing of features such as visualization, navigation, rendering and graphics, as well as the support for audio and video content of CE-HTML and HbbTV applications.
