BSkyB goes for storm test


May 29, 2009

The satellite broadcaster BSkyB is testing the latest set top box technology, as is software technologies developer Irdeto.

BSkyB intends to begin testing Storm Test, from Silicon & Software Systems (S3), a system that has been developed for the digital TV industry, in order to implement an automatic verification of set top boxes.

Irdeto will use Storm Test to check the compatibility of its encryption technology during the testing phases of a number of devices.

For example Storm Test can test the reaction of the STB when it is run through all of the channels over a five hour period, without interfering with the system while it is use.
