Eurofins Launching Arreios for ATSC 3.0 Test Suite

New suite of test automation tools to verify device ATSC 3.0 implementation and conformance will be on display at the 2019 NAB Show.

Eurofins Digital Testing announced it will be showcasing a new conformance test suite at the 2019 NAB Show. Arreios for ATSC 3.0 enables the certification and testing for ATSC 3.0 features, such as Ultra High Definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) video over broadcast and broadband, Interactive Applications, Targeted Advertising, Emergency Alerts and Content Recovery, and Watermarking.

ATSC 3.0 brings together many advanced technologies in the physical, transport, application and service layers of this new broadcast and broadband transmission system. Eurofins’ Arreios for ATSC 3.0 provides a suite of automated test tools that enable device manufacturers and their supply chain to reliably and efficiently test a range of scenarios to verify conformance and correct implementation for the wide-range of technologies set-out in ATSC 3.0.

Eurofins Digital Testing will showcase its test solutions for ATSC 3.0 at the 2019 NAB Show’s emerging technologies area, “Futures Park,” in North Hall.

“For ATSC 3.0 services to be compelling and meet consumer expectations, devices must be interoperable and key features must be correctly implemented,” said Johan Craeybeckx, Business Line Director, Eurofins Digital Testing International. “Working with Pearl, NAB, and other ATSC stakeholders, Eurofins is proud to help scale the collaborative rollout of ATSC 3.0 by offering a suite of test automation tools that verify conformance with the features set forth therein.”

“ATSC recognizes the importance of conformance to the success of ATSC 3.0, and its role in facilitating the introduction of high-quality systems and devices meeting the specification,” said Lynn Claudy, Senior VP of Technology at NAB and ATSC Chairman. “Conformance test suites, such as Eurofins’, will help drive adoption and ensure consumers experience the vast benefits this standard promises.”

“Based on an industry-wide effort and collaboration, ATSC 3.0 provides groundbreaking opportunities for broadcasters to bring consumers more content, choice and other next-gen TV services,” said Anne Schelle, Managing Director of Pearl. “We applaud Eurofins for their role in helping to advance ATSC 3.0, which is critical to facilitating future innovation in the broadcast TV industry.”
