The Digital TV Group (DTG) has agreed a new partnership deal with Mirifice which will see the firmís automated systems introduced to test Freesat set top boxes.

As from September, DTG will be introducing a customised version of the MiriATE(r) automation system at the industry test centre, which is where equipment will be tested to make sure that it conforms to the ISO17025 requirement.

During these tests, it will be discovered if the set top boxes are reliable.
The centre has the capacity to apply its tests to around ninety six set top boxes over a twenty four hour period.

This system can also be applied the Freeview equipment and will be invaluable to the industry as it builds up to the introduction of Freeview HD before the end of the year.
