Kineton International Plugfest 2024

Kineton is delighted to announce the second International Plugfest planned for this year in cooperation with the HbbTV Association. This week-long event will include the HbbTV Testing Event.

The 15th edition of the Plugfest will take place from Monday, June 24th, to Wednesday, June 26th, at the Kineton offices in Milan, Italy. From June 26th to June 28th, we will be hosting the HbbTV Testing Event and Testing Group meeting.

The established joint Plugfests provide a fantastic, controlled platform for all participants to collaborate towards achieving interoperability and delivering an excellent user experience.

Interoperability tests cover cutting-edge technologies such as UHD-4K/8K, HDR, HFR, NGA, HbbTV, DVB-I and HDMI (2.0/2.1a/2.1b) interoperability with sources (STBs/streaming devices, Sound bars, AVRs, laptops, encoders) and sinks (TVs, Projectors, Display Monitors etc).

The Plugfest is open to all companies interested in testing/validating their AV products/software/content/apps interoperability & compatibility with others’ implementations. Participants include TV device manufacturers, broadcasters, technology providers, platform operators, encoder providers, test equipment manufacturers, research & development institutions, standardisation bodies as well as HbbTV app, HbbTV OpApp and DVB-I client developers.

Plugfest Date: June 24-26, 2024

Venue: Kineton offices, via Edoardo Bassini 56, 20133 Milan, Italy

Who: Free for all HbbTV members. Nominal fee applicable for non-members. Attendance is strictly restricted to participants only.

This Plugfest forms part of a week-long series of events, which also includes the HbbTV Testing Event, focusing only on the HbbTV Test Suite v2024-2 validation, and HbbTV Testing Group meeting from June 26th to June 28th. The Testing Event is open to HbbTV members only.

It provides an opportunity for the HbbTV implementers to execute tests on their devices and log those executions as part of the evidence required to approve test cases for the HbbTV Test Suite v2024-2 release. The representatives of test material providers will be available to discuss problems found with either the test material or implementation. The Testing Event participants will have temporary access to the test harness, necessary for executing the test cases at the event. The test plan will be distributed to the event participants a day before. Participants should be TRAA assignees to have access to the HbbTV Test Repository.
