DLNA Certification Newsletter | September 2017

In this month’s newsletter, we would like to share with you a video on how DLNA Tool testing can be automated and give you an overview of some of our recently certified interesting devices.

We would also like to share some useful articles on Interoperability testing and DLNA’s role in Home entertainment.


DLNA Test Tool Automation

Automation of testing has numerous advantages, some of them being – overnight runs such that the results are available by morning for the tester, tests running without manual intervention and hence leads to lesser head count, dependable testing, using the staff for performing more useful activities rather than monotonous testing.

The DLNA Digital Media Server and Renderer tests are already automated to a large extent. This video shows us how to automate the DLNA CTT testing for Controllers, i.e. Digital Media Player, Digital Media Controller, Manual tests for Digital Media Server, Upload Controller, Download Controller and Push Controller.
