HbbTV releases Version 2022-2 of the HbbTV Conformance Test Suite

Geneva, August 25, 2022 – The HbbTV Association is pleased to announce the release of a new version of the HbbTV Conformance Test Suite.

The new version, developed by the HbbTV Testing Group, is called v2022-2; it is the second major release of the Test Suite in 2022. The release contains a total of 3,000 test cases, including a mixture of tests that have been approved for the first time, and tests that were updated after feedback from users of the Test Suite.

Prior to this release, the HbbTV Testing Group held a testing event at the beginning of July 2022 to gather the evidence required for the test approval. 12 companies participated in the event, representing manufacturers, test material providers, and reviewers.

“The constant adjustment to market requirements and addition of further features is key to the strong industry acceptance of the HbbTV specifications among broadcasters, platform operators and hardware manufacturers as the standard for improving the TV experience and enabling new monetisation opportunities such as Targeted Advertising,” said Vincent Grivet, Chair of the HbbTV Association. “The release of the new HbbTV Conformance Test Suite version ensures that existing and new features quickly and smoothly reach HbbTV-compliant TV sets and set-top boxes.”

The HbbTV Conformance Test Suite is an important tool for device manufacturers to verify compliance of their products with the most current HbbTV specifications and their features. The Test Suite is available through one of the registered HbbTV test centres and, as a convenience, to HbbTV members for use in their own facilities.
