SIRIM chooses DTT lab facility

The Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) has given Eurofins Digital Testing official accreditation to become the first lab facility for the Malaysian DTT broadcast service receiver specification, including the interactive
HbbTV profile.

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) mandates type approval certification for imported digital TV devices and has assigned SIRIM the authority to enforce these rules. This ensures that all imported DTV devices meet the DTT specification (SKMM MTSFB TC T004).

Eurofins Digital Testing is ISO17025 accredited to perform the DVB-T2 and HbbTV tests that conform to the SKMM MTSFB TC T004 specification. Testing time is minimised, the company said, by using the automated features of the Ligada iSuite for HbbTV test suite and test harness.

The new DVB-T2 Malaysian DTT network is being rolled out by MyTV Broadcasting Sdn Bhd
during 2015.

Andy Hickman, Eurofins CEO, said, “We have a long experience of providing DTT receiver conformance testing services globally for a number of networks. Our Ligada iSuite HbbTV tool suite enables our conformance testing services for the UK, New Zealand, Australian, Spanish and now Malaysian HbbTV roll-outs.”

According to the company, this latest offering further extends Eurofins Digital Testing’s portfolio of testing products and services designed specifically to meet the requirements of the DTT/HbbTV industry.
