Verification & Validation

In 2018, the DVB Steering Board recognized the need for a renewed focus on the implementation of DVB's technologies. While this naturally covers the specifications themselves, it increasingly applies to providing testing, verification and validation (V&V) elements as an integral part of the DVB process.

Thus, the end of DVB’s process in the Commercial Requirements phase now includes the provision of V&V requirements aimed at accelerating the implementation of its technologies in the market place, rather than just producing requirements for a technical specification; the Technical Module will have a corresponding end point to its work including V&V on any new specifications.

This page will list V&V tools provided or supported by DVB.
