DIGITAL TV LABS BECOMES OFFICIAL DOLBY LICENSEE TO PROVIDE STREAMLINED
CERTIFICATION SERVICES FOR CE MANUFACTURERS
Amsterdam, IBC – Amsterdam, IBC, Stand no. 2.C30– 7th September 2012: Digital TV Labs, providers of specialised receiver conformance products, services and consultancy, has today announced that it has become an official licensee of Dolby Laboratories.
The licence enables Digital TV Labs to offer CE manufacturers and middleware vendors a new streamlined service for Dolby pre-testing. In addition, manufacturers will have access to a dedicated team of technical experts who will host and aid in the debugging of devices, prior to Dolby submission. This will greatly widen the availability of specialised technical services available to manufacturers seeking to get devices to market.
The new service offering follows a history of collaboration projects between the two companies who have already worked on emerging technologies such as HbbTV, MPEG-DASH and TNT2.0.
Keith Potter, Digital TV Labs CEO, says, “We are providing testing, hosting and debugging services in both our UK and Hong Kong facilities in collaboration with Dolby. Manufacturers will benefit from a reduced time-to-market as well as the use of services that do not require them to use their time or resources. Digital TV Labs’ expertise will also reduce manufacturers’ costs by minimising the need to re-work the product for re-testing.”
Jeffrey Eid, Vice President of Global Support Programs for Dolby Laboratories says, “We are delighted that Digital TV Labs is now able to offer Dolby testing as part of its test services offering. As Dolby Digital Plus is a mandated requirement in so many of the world’s broadcast and OTT standards, it is important that manufacturers can turn to experts like DTV Labs to help them resolve any issues prior to Dolby Approval.”
With offices in Asia and Europe and test services covering Europe, Australasia, ASEAN, Africa and now South America, Digital TV Labs’ international reach is unrivalled.
