Project Acronym MHP-CONFIDENCE
Title MHP Conformance Testing Improvement by Development of New Conformance Tests in Europe
Start date 2003-11-01
End date  2006-06-30
Programme IST
Description
MHP-CONFIDENCE will strengthen the DVB Multimedia Home Platform Standard (MHP) by strengthening its conformance-testing regime. The goal of the project is to develop new conformance tests as an enabling technology for the successful deployment of MHP components in the market. This will foster the integration of networked audiovisual systems and home platforms as well as the development of innovative services on the basis of interoperable applications. The project centres on the official formal conformance testing. It does not address the more informal inter-operability testing and is absolutely not intended to replace that. The project builds on the recent success of the European MHP Standard (published by EC in OJ 2002/C 331/04 of 31st Dec. 2002), but recognises some visible weaknesses of the very first MHP Test Suite launched by DVB which are critical for the competitiveness of both, the European standard as a whole, and the individual products of European manufacturers.

The project addresses the development of conformance tests for the current version, but also for new versions of the MHP standard and thus maintains and reinforces European strength in an area where Europe has established a substantial industrial and technological leadership. With such an approach the project also responds to the emerging needs resulting from the current adoption or application of DVB-MHP (and its existing conformance tests) by other standardisation bodies like SCTE-OCAP in the USA or ARIB in Japan, whilst opening new opportunities for European technology. Strict and unified conformance testing - even across "standards dialects" will ensure a smooth co-evolution of platforms and applications and will allow maximum exploitation of the technology by manufacturers, network operators, broadcasters and consumers for horizontal market solutions, in line with Directive 2002/21/EC for the benefit of content providers and end-users alike.
