Witbe Announces New Consumer

News Image
Witbe has announced a new customer in Channel Four Television Corporation.

Channel Four is utilising Witbe's technology to automate the QA testing process for its Channel 4 streaming app, providing a more efficient way to deliver a consistently strong service to its viewers across devices and new app updates.

The Channel 4 streaming app is available on a wide variety of devices — from set-top boxes and streaming sticks to smartphones and tablets — and Witbe's testing and monitoring technology is helping to automate the QA process for the app, ensuring that it works correctly on its top viewing platforms with each new update. The automation of these labor-intensive and repetitive tasks increases efficiency, freeing up staff to spend more time on other steps in the QA testing process.

"We offer the C4 streaming service across a wide range of consumer devices, and our mission is to deliver a first-class consumer experience across all of them," said Dave Cameron, chief product officer at Channel 4. "This new partnership with Witbe empowers our testing teams to work much more efficiently with the help of reliable automated technology to do just that."

Witbe's technology tests and monitors real devices, providing Channel 4 with an accurate picture of the quality of experience its viewers receive at home. Channel 4 is using Witbe's Witbox+, the company's most powerful monitoring solution, which is capable of testing four 4K devices simultaneously. The Witbox lineup can test mobile devices and smart TVs — both of which Channel 4 relies on — and enables the company to compare its service quality to that of its competitors. With Witbe's Remote Eye Controller (REC) — part of the company's Software Suite of solutions — Channel 4's QA testing team can also access real devices remotely from anywhere in the world.

"Our QA test automation technology was designed specifically to help video service providers deliver consistent performance across updates," said Mathieu Planche, CEO at Witbe. "Enabling a renowned company like Channel Four and helping them maximize their workflow to achieve their goals is an honor for Witbe. It's a testament to our technology and how it can help media companies deliver the quality of service and experience their customers expect."

Witbe will showcase its powerful automated testing and proactive monitoring technology at the 2024 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 14-17, in the West Hall at stand W2053.
