Digital TV Labs Launches Ligada iSuite

Digital TV Labs, the digital media and device testing company, is launching Ligada iSuite for HbbTV/CI+ at IBC 2013.
Leveraging Digital TV Labs' extensive HbbTV and CI+ expertise, this is a purpose-built test tool to ensure interoperability between HbbTV devices supporting CI+ modules.
Ligada iSuite for HbbTV/CI+, built on Digital TV Labs widely adopted and highly versatile Ligada iSuite Test Harness and CI+ Test Tool, checks for conformance to mandatory HbbTV specifications for HbbTV devices supporting CI+ CAM.
Conformance to the specification enables broadcasters and platform operators to offer advanced, feature-rich functionalities: pay and subscription VOD services; allowing additional revenue generation via HbbTV for long tail and premium content; additional feature enablement include parental control for age sensitive content.
Keith Potter, CEO of Digital TV Labs, says: "Currently many CE devices don't fully support all aspects of this specification. To ensure continued and increased availability of compliant devices in the market, Digital TV Labs has created the Ligada HbbTV/ CI+ test suite. We believe that ensuring CI+-enabled HbbTV device interoperability will drive the next generation of HbbTV applications for broadcasters as well as accelerate the adoption of HbbTV in new countries and platforms."
Ligada iSuite for HbbTV / CI+ is a comprehensive and highly automated test suite that comprises of over 40 test cases and CI+ Test CAM, implementing two main sets of functionality tests: communication between the CAM and receiver implementing content and service protection API; and ensuring such communication streams are security protected. Individual test cases offer conformance testing for streaming VOD via HbbTV, use of parental and security settings and ensuring sent information is encrypted.
