Testronic Announces Expansion of File-Based QC Lab

State-of-the-Art Lab Adds UltraViolet Interoperability Testing, Secure Management of Internet Access, and Downstream Deliverables

(Burbank, CA) Testronic Labs, the global leader in quality assurance services for film and television, games, consumer electronics, enterprise, and publishing, has completed a significant expansion to its award-winning File-Based QC Lab (the File-Based Lab), located in the company’s First Street facility in Burbank, California. Building upon the existing secure infrastructure, the File-Based Lab has been upgraded to provide UltraViolet(tm) Interoperability Testing capabilities and related test automation services, including extended services and environments to support the evolving digital ecosystem from mastering to consumer distribution.

UltraViolet is the cloud-based home entertainment industry standard that allows consumers to download and stream movies and TV shows for viewing on a wide range of devices. The expansion of Testronic’s File-Based Lab adds UltraViolet Interoperability Testing services, and features independent test stations supporting both hardware and software-based Common File Format (CFF) Players connected to a secure NAS, allowing client files to be quickly tested against a wide-range of CFF Players. UltraViolet Content Providers, Retailers, Download Service Providers (DSPs), and CFF Player manufacturer licensees can bring and transmit CFF content files for testing against available players, and have their players tested against CFF reference files and representative UltraViolet content. Testronic engineers are available to assist in consultation, setup, configuration, and to perform interoperability testing, including end-to-end consumer purchase, download, and playback scenarios.

In addition to supporting UltraViolet testing, the updated File-Based Lab can securely receive and test digital content and all downstream deliverables for Over-the-Top (OTT) services such as iTunes, Netflix and Hulu. To better support website, web portal and content rights redemption testing, Testronic has further expanded its online test lab environment, adding 12 additional test stations and upgrading the Master QC testing suites with greater functionality and additional technologies.

Albert Koval, Testronic’s Vice President of UltraViolet Services and Software Testing US, said, “Adding UltraViolet interoperability testing capabilities for content and CFF playback devices was a natural extension of the work that began when Phase I of the File-Based Lab was unveiled in mid-2011. The Lab has been designed from the ground up to serve the needs of studios, content providers and player manufacturers as the industry transitions to file-based workflows. Our customers are continually engaged in a never-ending cycle of change regarding the creation, management and delivery of content, and we feel that our ability to look ahead of the horizon and help them be prepared is crucial. Testronic is making this investment to stay ahead in critical areas like UltraViolet that relate to OTT and digital distribution, including the testing of desktop and mobile apps, websites, web portals and plug-in services, all of which are a growing focus for our clients.”

Testronic developed the File-Based Lab after careful research clearly showed a need to support clients in performing end-to-end, secure, testing services in the digital space. 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit download capabilities ensure fast, secure ingest of large media files; and future growth is secured, with the ability to add additional testing stations and capacity as needed. In Phase I, the company invested heavily in ground-breaking technology, including an innovative, advanced playback system for high-resolution, multi-format A/V, which reduced the time and equipment required to test the many master and distribution content file formats that exist across the entertainment ecosystem. The Phase II expansion is a continuation of thoughtful and advanced creativity by the Testronic team to develop file-based testing services to support clients now and in the future.
