The STBTP currently is designed to support testing of DVB-C and IP-based set-top boxes, and is designed to test 16 units per system in parallel. The system includes testing of audio and video interfaces at any resolution, including native HD 1080P. A "rolling rack" design allows for pre- and post-staging of equipment. It also features universal cabling connections. Future releases are planned to support DAC (Q3 2014) and DNCS (Q4 2014) video delivery systems.
Promptlink Communications has announced release of the Promptlink Set-Top Box Test Platform (STBTP). Similar to other Promptlink test solutions, the STBTP product performs a functional test of video and audio features of a digital set-top box. It's designed to help cable operators to manage field-returned inventory and determine functional and non-functional equipment.
