DUBLIN -- S3 Group, a global enabler of the highest quality digital TV content delivery platforms, today unveiled the newest member of the StormTest™ portfolio: StormTest Decision Line. Aimed at easing issues faced by repair facilities around the world such as demanding throughput requirements and device configurations, StormTest Decision Line provides an efficient and reliable assessment of each device and determines what repairs are required before it goes back into the field. Capable of testing up to 16 devices simultaneously, this latest addition to the StormTest family provides technicians the same trusted platform that development teams rely on with StormTest Development Center.

StormTest Decision Line helps operators maintain and develop high quality content delivery platforms by ensuring that all returned devices are assessed and fixed properly before re-deployment. The StormTest Decision Line comprises StormTest Decision Station, which brings another level of cost savings to automated testing. With this solution, smaller volumes of testing can be completed at hubs before going for repair, or engineers can test a consumer’s device directly in the subscriber’s home – saving the operators the costs of extra truck rolls to and from the repair facility.

“Our StormTest portfolio is recognized around the world by many of the leading digital TV operators as an efficient and reliable solution for device lifecycle management. StormTest Decision Line extends its capabilities to repair facilities seeking new ways to increase operational efficiencies and improve the overall quality of content delivery platforms,” said Ian Harris, director of product management, S3 Group. “This addition fills a gap in the market that will reduce operators’ costs on repairs and truck rolls and, most importantly, catch those faulty boxes that would have been declared ‘no fault found.’ StormTest Decision Line’s advanced audio and video quality analysis enables even subtle faults to be detected automatically and accurately.”
