Malaysia (MCMC) – Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) Broadcast Service Receiver – Common Test Suite (First Revision)
Effective May 8, 2019
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has introduced the Technical Code which specifies the test methods for the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) broadcast receivers to ensure its interoperability, functionality, quality, safety and performance.
The common test suite is intended to provide a comprehensive documentation on test cases and test streams (in case of SI/PSI) which are derived from the DTT receiver specifications registered by MCMC, providing a complete test kit for product designers and test engineers to evaluate product compliance.
The objective is to ensure that all mandated equipment are certified according to the applicable Malaysian Standards, Technical Codes or through Technical Declaration in accordance to the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998, its subsidiary legislations, statutory requirements and established rules and procedures. The revision is intended to update the test cases which would address the different parameters and implementation of the standard by various manufacturers. The update would also ensure that the test cases are in line with the latest test suite used internationally.
