To develop a fully robust and reliable set of test suites for the UK market took over a decade.
However, DTG Testing has enjoyed considerable success in recent years leveraging this experience to develop test suites for other territories based on the UK profile.
DTG Testing currently provides the test and conformance regime for Freeview New Zealand.
DTG Testing has produced versions of the UK MHEG test suite for Freeview Australia, VAST Australia and Saorview Ireland.
DTG Testing also offers RF Performance tests for the UK, the Nordig region (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) and to E-Book standard (most other European nations including Spain, Germany, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Czech Republic and Hungary).
