  • offers guidance to members during product development with feedback and advice
  • reviews and updates the test plans and guidance based on your implementation insight

We currently test products for IMF for Broadcast & Online, and AS-11.

Our DPP Certified Programme for IMF for Broadcast & Online provides testing of products that support the SMPTE TSP 2121 family of specifications.

The DPP Test Lab tests products that support the full range of AMWA AS-11 specifications, including the North American, Nordic and Australian and New Zealand versions.
