UPC Cablecom starts smart TV testing with S3 Group

Liberty Global-owned Swiss operator UPC Cablecom has extended its deal with TV content delivery specialist S3 Group to include automated testing for connected TVs.

UPC Cablecom will extend the use of S3 Group’s StormTest Development Center – a digital TV test automation platform – to include smart TVs, which UPC described as a one element of its comprehensive multiscreen offering.

“As web-based applications converge with TV platforms, comprehensive and rigorous testing prior to service roll-out is essential to delivering a quality experience. The ability to extend our existing test platform with StormTest to include connected TVs allows us to adopt a uniform test environment across any device or screen,” said Claus Beck, director of engineering, UPC Cablecom.
