The HbbTV Association has announced that it has received all the test material for the first release of a test suite for HbbTV 2.0 implementations.
The current HbbTV test suite (V8.1) is suitable for testing HbbTV 1 and 1.5 products. V9.0 is expected to be available before the end of the summer and will add over 500 new tests covering HbbTV 2.0 functionality. It will also improve coverage of HbbTV 1 and 1.5 functionality in some key areas.
“The delivery of these tests is a significant milestone for HbbTV 2.0″ explains Klaus Illgner, President of the HbbTV Association. “Through the release of our Test Suite, we seek to help HbbTV products interoperate with services, giving consumers an optimal experience for services that use the new 2.0 spec’s advanced interactivity features.”
