Our Facilities

DTG Testing operates from an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory in central London.

The state-of-the-art laboratory provides outstanding facilities for both test development and product testing and is enabled for manual and automated testing of DTT (Freeview) and DSAT (Freesat) receivers.

DTG Testing’s test facility includes the UK’s largest GTEM cell which is used both for conformance testing of digital radios and LTE (4G) / DTT co-existence testing.

DTG Testing’s laboratory houses the UK’s largest collection of representative samples of DTT and DSAT receivers. The collection of over 300 receivers was used to support digital switchover and the roll-out of Freeview HD by gathering data about the capability of receivers deployed in the UK.

The receiver collection is used for special projects by DTG engineers and is available for hire by broadcasters and manufacturers to enable testing of:

  • Changes to broadcast signalling
  • New features on platforms
  • interactive applications interoperability e.g. HbbTV applications, MHEG;
  • over-air downloads;interactive applications interoperability e.g. HbbTV applications, MHEG;
  • over-air downloads;
  • audio-video input/output (e.g. HDMI, SCART etc.) interoperability;
  • LTE coexistence; and
  • TV white space coexistence.
