S3 Group says CableLabs is using its StormTest Development Center to support automated testing of interactive TV applications. CableLabs has integrated StormTest Development Center to interface with its enhanced TV (ETV) Activity Reporting System (EARS), a solution that monitors ETV streams at the operator headend. By connecting StormTest Development Center to EARS, Enhanced Binary Interchange Format (EBIF) applications can be tested quickly and effectively to ensure a quality user experience.

S3 Group has also installed a StormTest evaluation system at CableLabs to help automate User Agent test cases.

StormTest Development Center has been chosen by more than 25 digital TV operators, broadcasters and vendors including Canoe Ventures, Mediaset, and Irdeto among others. The solution allows for automated testing to be carried out more efficiently and effectively by testing multiple devices with different test scripts simultaneously for interactive applications, embedded firmware, and digital TV solutions. It provides organizations like CableLabs with enterprise features such as centralized resource management, where testing slots can be pooled across systems and sites, as well as centralized reporting and results management – all extremely important when testing multiple interactive applications.
