  • Video and audio quality
  • Video resolution

User Experience

Ensure ease of use

The success of your streaming service depends on delivering a seamless and intuitive user experience. We use custom created device, browser and OS matrix to mirror your audience. Our UX testers make sure every test scenario is covered through structured and exploratory testing.


Make sure you measure up

If you want to know how your service compares to the market or you are launching a new app, we are here to provide objective data and analysis to make sure you don’t get left behind.

You can choose metrics from +3,000 KPI’s, including levels of latency, video quality, availability, performance, interoperability or local market conditions. All the information to help guide future development.

Compatibility Testing

Every market, every screen

When you need to ensure a consistent user experience across browsers, operating systems, platforms, and devices, let us help and guide you. We have over 1500 devices to replicate your target demographics for every market, including Smart TVs, mobile and tablets, operating systems, web browsers, consumer monitors, streaming devices, STBs and more. Testing can include compatibility, stability, interoperability, and performance, designed to your budget and timelines.

Quality of Service

Find the weak links in the chain

The successful delivery of streamed video relies on a complex ecosystem of services provided by multiple vendors. Our tools detect issues from CDN through to device. We also ensure there is sufficient capacity to support your services and provide vital data to help you ensure your vendors deliver on their SLA’s. Our goal is to ensure your platform delivers a stable and resilient service on all screens and in any condition and location.

Live Stream Monitoring

Don’t gamble with high stakes

Live streaming has the highest risk and the most at stake. Viewers of live events and sport are the most unforgiving audience, and it is essential to get it right. We test your streams before, during and after live events to ensure your audience has the best possible viewing experience. Our real-time monitoring and automated alarm systems ensure appropriate and rapid escalation of any issues.

We provide 24-hour manual support across our testing hubs in multiple time zones. Our automated video quality tools ensure instant issue escalation for live streams and automatic video recording for remedial analysis.

Platform Launch Support

Testing whenever and wherever you need it

Firing up a new service to a set launch date is challenging. Keeping to development deadlines and making sure all moving parts work, requires dedicated and flexible testing support. Our teams have provided cross-disciplined, rapidly scalable support for the launches of the biggest streaming services in the world.

Our extensive, real device farms can be configured to match the usage of your target market and ensure device/browser/OS compatability. Our launch support service is designed to give you that extra testing support you need to ensure a successful launch.

VOD Availability

When you publish VOD content you need to know that it is available, with the right content and with the correct assets for that market.

  • Online availability
  • AV presence
  • Geo-blocking
  • Correct description
  • Thumbnails
