Royal Philips Electronics has opened an authorized test center (ATC) in Caen, France for high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI)-compliant products.

The ATC in Caen is the third HDMI ATC to be opened worldwide. It is anticipated to improve global testing capacity and help speed the delivery of HDMI-compliant solutions to market.

HDMI offers a simple and secure way to connect audio and video equipment and install home theater systems compatible with new HD standards.

According to guidelines from the HDMI consortium, all manufacturers are required to test a sampling of their HDMI products at an ATC. Until now, manufacturers have only had two ATCs to rely on - one based in Japan and the other in North America.

By opening the testing facility in Caen, Philips is increasing global testing capacity for HDMI-compliant solutions. It will help manufacturers meet market demand for HDMI technology with tested solutions that guarantee compliance with the HDMI specifications and interoperability with other HDMI solutions.

"Philips, a founding member of the HDMI consortium, has already demonstrated its commitment to HDMI technology by introducing a complete family of HDMI-compliant receiver ICs and support tools for next-generation TV," said Patrick Lejoly, system and application manager for Philips Semiconductors' data converters product line.

"Opening an authorized test center is the next logical step for Philips to improve compliance of HDMI products and speed up their appearance on the market. It is also an answer to growing demand from HDMI manufacturers for a world-class ATC facility located in Europe," Lejoly added.
