DLNA Test Tools

To purchase access to the DLNA Test Tools, review the prices and packages. Please send an email to info@spirespark.com requesting an invoice for the tools and packages that fit your needs. 

Access to the DLNA Test Tools was cited as a top reason why companies joined the DLNA consortium. Previously an exclusive benefit for Members only, the Conformance Test Tool (CTT), Media Capabilities Verification Tool (MCVT), and Golden Devices are now offered to everyone.

Multiple copies of these tools can be obtained, allowing various teams within one company to test at the same time. The CTT has been perfected as an easy-to-use tool that tests each DLNA Guideline supported by the product in development, while the MCVT allows companies to verify if a device correctly implements the operations performed during media playback. The Golden Digital Media Server (DMS) and Digital Media Controller (DMC) provide a complete server and controller for testing.

 

This video provides an overview of the DLNA Test Tools and a live demonstration of how they work.

Conformance Test Tool (CTT)

  • The CTT is an easy-to-use tool that tests each DLNA Guideline supported by the product in development.
  • With the help of this tool, the test operator can check if the device complies with the DLNA Guidelines based on the feature set supported by the product.
  • Implements media alignment and scaled files to realistically simulate actual devices.
  • New IPv6 functionality enables to test their IPv6 devices and ensures DLNA devices are future proofed.

Media Capability Verification Tool (MCVT)

  • The MCVT is used to verify if the device correctly implements the operations performed during media playback.
    • For example, if the device can perform operations such as play, stop, pause, seek and scan, this tool will verify if the device correctly performs the operations using DLNA methods such as connection stalling, byte-based seek, time-based seek, and play speed as supported.
  • The MCVT allows device vendors the ability to verify that each media format profile will perform all operations successfully for all possible methods that the device supports.
  • Implements media alignment and scaled files to realistically simulate actual devices.

Automation

  • Helps your company create higher quality products while spending less on QA. Ideal for continuous integration and Agile software development, automation also makes development faster by finding errors more quickly and earlier in the development process.

Golden Digital Media Server (DMS)

  • DLNA provides a complete media server for Interoperability testing.
  • The Golden DMS is fully configurable and therefor all certifiable DLNA media format profiles and all DLNA methods (http-Get, Byte Range, Time, Connection Stalling and Play Speed) can be tested.

Golden Digital Media Controller (DMC)

  • DLNA also provides a complete media controller for testing.
  • All DMR and DMS devices can be tested against the Golden DMC for interoperability.

Golden Digital Media Player/Digital Media Renderer (DMP/DMR)

  • A complete media player and media renderer for interoperability testing.
  • Fully configurable, and therefore all certifiable DLNA media format profiles and all DLNA methods (http-Get, Byte Range, Time, Connection Stalling and Play Speed) can be tested.
  • All DMS, DMC and +PU+ devices can be tested against the Golden DMP/R for interoperability.

SpireSpark staff is available to assist companies with the Test Tools throughout their product development life cycles.
