Digital TV Labs' Facilitates Opera HbbTV Browser Integration

A provider of independent, specialised receiver conformance products and services has announced that it is working closely with Opera, the globally renowned browser supplier, to provide CE manufacturers with a swift and easy integration of the company’s new HbbTV-ready browser technology. Working together with Digital TV Labs, Opera has developed HbbTV compatibility as part of its offering to ensure that CE manufacturers integrate the technology correctly.
CE manufacturers who have licensed Opera can now purchase Digital TV Labs’ Ligada iSuite HbbTV Test Tool to ensure a swift route to market by conforming to the interim HbbTV Logo Policy.
Keith Potter, Chief Executive Officer, Digital TV Labs, said: “The cooperation of the two companies’ teams means a faster time to market for CE manufacturers of all types of product. Ligada can be used to quickly solve integration issues, thus preventing interoperability problems in the field. Once again, this is about ensuring a smooth and successful rollout of the standard and therefore a positive consumer experience.”
The Ligada iSuite HbbTV Test Tool - a test harness consisting of test suites and server upon which to run them - fully supports the preliminary HbbTV Test Suite, slated for release in October this year. The latest version of Ligada automates many processes via its integrated JavaScript API support, IR blaster control, power cycle control and video screen capture interface. With its intuitive UI and the inclusion of HbbTV test cases linked to the HbbTV test assertions, Ligada significantly increases development productivity. Ligada fully supports DVB-T/C/S HbbTV receivers.
"Opera Software is a leader in HbbTV compliant middleware for TVs and set-top-boxes worldwide," said Frode Hernes, Vice President of TV and Connected Devices, Opera Software. "By using the Digital TV Labs test suite and test services, Opera's customers can rely on a solid third party to ensure compatibility and compliance, and avoid pitfalls in the rapidly evolving market of HbbTV compliant devices."
Potter added: “The development of Opera integration testing is another clear sign of our commitment to the HbbTV standard and of our responsiveness to market needs. Standards are only as good as the test suites and facilities behind them, and that applies to HbbTV too of course.”
