Verify iTV Infrastructures

Once an interactive application has been developed it must be tested with the various elements of the interactive infrastructure it may interface with during deployment.

In particular, tests need to be performed with a variety of set-top boxes and headends within a number of iTV infrastructures to ensure the applications will perform and interact in the correct way. This can be a lengthy and expensive process, but can be accelerated and simplified if these tests happen in an environment that allows easy connectivity with a variety of set-top boxes and simulates sophisticated headends.

The Softel MediaSphere™ family of iTV products includes MediaSphere Lab, a flexible, scalable and efficient set of tools for fast and thorough testing of interactive applications before they are deployed.
