Viaccess-Orca taps Media Motive as part of mobile apps move

TV technology provider Viaccess-Orca is using Italian technology outfit Media Motive’s M3µ test automation platform to automate testing for its mobile and web applications. Viaccess-Orca intends to use the Italian company’s solution to improve testing for validation purposes.

Viaccess-Orca announced this week that it was acquiring Finnish software outfit BigHill, which specialises in developing mobile apps for TV content, adding a mobile TV app operating to its product portfolio.

Media Motive’s M3µ platform is designed to provide an automation tool for the testing of native Android or iOS applications, as well as other web applications, irrespective of the operating system, along with popular browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera.

M3µ supports scheduled tests, and can simultaneously run them on different devices, operating systems, and for multiple applications, dramatically reducing test time.
