HCLTech has developed a OTT automation testing solution, eDATTM, targeted for various devices and platforms. For automating HDMI-based DUTs like STB, Chromecast, Apple TV, Fire TV, and more, we use a video capture card that takes HDMI as input and connects to the PC/automation system through USB. eDAT can capture display content through the image capture card and store it on the PC for verification. For non-HDMI devices like digital LED TVs, eDAT can capture display content using the camera. eDAT can also record the sound from the TV and verify the same with the reference sound. This OTT platform testing solution can verify the GUI of the DUT by way of image capture and comparison, along with support for OCR technology to verify specific strings of text data displayed on the DUT’s display/screen. eDAT can also verify the GUI of the DUT by way of image capture and pixel to pixel comparison to verify image content and specific strings of text data displayed on the DUT’s display/screen.
