Aiming to simplify content conformance The HbbTV Association is working with the DVB industry consortium to compile a DASH validation tool.

hbbtv display 22 feb 2018The newly released tool conducts checks of ISO/IEC 23009-1 MPEG-DASH media presentation descriptions (MPDs) and segments to ensure conformance with DASH-related specifications from DVB and HbbTV.

“We are excited about the release of this DASH validation tool, which will help application developers and content providers verify that their services are compliant with the HbbTV/DVB DASH profiles, enabling them to offer compelling hybrid services that enhance the viewer experience,” said Vincent Grivet (TDF), chair of the HbbTV Association.

DVB and HbbTV have a close relationship and common membership, making this the perfect partnership," added DVB chair Peter MacAvoc. “Content delivery is becoming increasingly complex. Working together, we are bringing simplicity to content conformance for DASH-delivered streams.

The DASH validator source code is now available and free under an open source licence at https://github.com/Dash-Industry-Forum/Conformance-Software. Users can validate their content through the web-based interface or build a local copy for use in a production workflow within their own environment. The DASH validation tool extends the current DASH-IF validator found at https://conformance.dashif.org to complement the HbbTV Association DRM Reference Application and Test Suite.
