Acterna Test Gear Now Supports MHP


Acterna LLC said Friday that its “DTS-330” digital-broadcast-test system has been enhanced to support the Multimedia Home Platform standard.

The enhancement will allow interactive-TV-service providers to test their offerings of interactive services and multimedia applications via set-top boxes, the vendor said.

"Interactive TV promises broadcasters a new era of services that represent significant revenue potential," Acterna cable-networks division vice president of marketing Kevin Oliver said in a prepared statement.

"To capitalize on this opportunity, operators and equipment manufacturers need a way to ensure the proper transmission of MHP data within the MPEG [Moving Picture Expert Group] streams,” he added.
