Nagra deploys S3 Group’s test automation platform

Kudelski Group-owned content protection specialist Nagra has selected S3 Group’s StormTest Development Center to automate testing of its OpenTV 5 set-top box middleware and guide solutions.

Nagra said it will use the S3 Group platform to scale globally, meet demand for its products, ensure quality assurance and improve responsiveness and turnaround times.

“After a thorough evaluation, we decided on S3 Group’s StormTest Development Center as the solution that best meets our requirements. StormTest Development Center allows us to rapidly create and execute tests for our STB middleware and guide solutions, resulting in increased productivity and quicker ROI,” said Mervin Zhang, head of solutions engineering R&D at Nagra.

Nagra’s OpenTV middleware solutions provide the core operating software for STBs and gateways, while its guide solutions provide universal interfaces that integrate traditional broadcast TV with locally stored media, internet media and on-demand content.

S3 Group specialises in enhancing the performance and service readiness of video platforms across connected devices and claims more than 100 customers, across 28 countries – including BSkyB, BT, Comcast, Kabel Deutschland and Liberty Global.
