DPP Test Lab

Testing against DPP specifications in the DPP Test Lab enables you, and your customers, to have confidence in the interoperability of your products.

The DPP offers testing and certification of products that are designed to work with our technical specifications. Our members have access to the DPP Test Lab, enabling them to gain help and support with their product development, and to validate and certify the results.

The lab is run by our test lab manager, who:

  • is actively involved in the development of specifications
  • develops test plans for each specification and product group, together with industry experts
  • 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.

IMF for Broadcast & Online

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

  • TSP 2121-1 (ProRes, Phase 1) – we are accepting products for testing and certification
  • TSP 2121-4 (JPEG2000) – we are running an early developer scheme

Products that pass our rigorous tests can gain DPP Certified status.


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. We work closely with the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), who provide certification of compliance for the family of AS-11 specifications.
