The test suites we use at DTG Testing are the only approved solutions to demonstrate conformance requirements for the trademarks of Freesat, Freeview and Freeview NZ, along with the Digital Tick Mark and various trademarks throughout the world.

The development of our tests here at DTG Testing are based on rigorous technical excellence requirements. For example, take our testing for platform specification, for the likes of the D-Book. The team of specialists who work at the development of our test suites look to identify the functional features and also clearly define specific test vectors that can be used in the testing of those particular features in authentic real-world simulations.

We create our test streams using various tools that have been optimised for using in the production of tests. As these tools are very flexible and versatile, it means our staff can repurpose the test streams for different platforms. All without causing any adverse effects to the functionalities that are tested. This therefore reduces the cost involved in verifying and validating new platforms.

In addition to the aforementioned test streams, our team of test developers also provides a variety of supporting documentation. For example, our test house provides test vector descriptions for developers of receivers to allow them to trace and repair any faults quickly and effectively. We also provide proforma report sheets and full operator instructions for use in the test lab.
