On behalf of the DTT licensee, both Norges Televisjon AS ("NTV") and RiksTV AS ("RiksTV") are responsible for validation of end user equipment for the Norwegian DTT platform, according to NTVs specifications for such equipment.
We've signed agreements with Labwise and Sofia Digital for handling future IRD validation testing. RiksTV will not place any restrictions on which of these labs manufacturers can choose for future tests.
We've completed a new version of our specification, that reduces the amount of requirements, removing some and referencing Nordig where possible. Please contact email@example.com if you need a copy. The test plan isn't ready yet, but will be posted to this page when completed.
To register your End User Equipment, follow these steps:
Send pictures (and if available, the user manual in pdf) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Changes to existing listings must be sent to email@example.com
A set of documents and specifications are available for the manufacturer in order to:
- understand the validation process,
- be able to order the validation, and
- to understand the different existing requirements.
These documents are listed below.
All shipment costs, taxes and import duties related to receiving the samples and shipping the samples to the external test house will be invoiced the manufacturer.
The validation is normally only covering one specific product. A test may cover several products in the cases where multiple products share the same software and hardware. This shall be agreed with RiksTV in advance of the testing.
