Eurofins Digital Testing, a provider of end-to-end quality assurance QA and testing services, has announced that it will provide Akamai Technologies with extensive research into OTT quality-of-experience (QoE), giving both companies’ customers an objective dataset to help inform OTT workflow decisions.

Eurofins and Akamai have developed a way of understanding OTT QoE by running extensive frame-by-frame capturing and automated testing of multiple encoding profiles on a variety of playback devices such as smart TVs and mobile phones, while simulating common conditions seen on the internet. This dataset will allow the two companies to uniquely advise their customers on playback issues that affect OTT QoE and measures to help improve the viewer experience.
