Witbe unveils Test and Validation solution for Connected TV services at TV Connect

New solution enhances Witbe’s award-winning quality management suite for converged services

France(07 Mar 2013)

Witbe, the leading provider of quality management solutions for multimedia services over any network, to any device, will be unveiling a unique solution for connected TVs, during TV Connect inLondonthis month. Witbe’s Test & Validation solution will now enable content providers and application developers to benefit from comprehensive and automated quality testing of new services, prior to their launch on connected TV sets.

As connected (Smart) TVs become more prevalent on the market, a wealth of new revenue driving opportunities is opening up for service and content providers to offer video and interactive applications to be consumed via the TV screen. Using Witbe’s new Test & Validation solution for connected TVs, developers can launch new apps quicker and cope with the accelerated release cycle of new TV sets, while ensuring complex features have been thoroughly tested.

Witbe’s Test & Validation solutions are already used by some of the world’s largest service providers, application developers and device manufacturers on a comprehensive range of user devices including set-top boxes, iOS/Android apps and computers. As Witbe’s solution for connected TV leverages the same technologies used for testing other platforms, developers and quality assurance engineers can reuse their test scenarios across several terminal types and even test converged services.

“Quality of Experience is particularly important for consumers who have purchased connected TVs, as they expect to enjoy the highest calibre of visual and interactive entertainment,” explains Jean-Michel Planche, President, Witbe.  “As each brand and model of connected TVs has its own technical specificities, it is very difficult and time consuming for developers to test them all. Witbe’s new solution for connected TVs industrialises the test process to accelerate the release cycles. This will eventually help connected TVs become a main device to access interactive services and buy content. ”

Witbe’s Test & Validation solutions for services and applications on connected TVs will be demonstrated for the first time, on stand 159, at the TV Connect Conference & Exhibition, atLondon’sOlympiafrom 19 to21 March 2013.
