Prague, Czech Republic, 9th September 2019Suitest, a leading provider of object-based, codeless test automation and debugging tools for OTT apps has announced the launch of desktop support for SoloCandy USB-Stick, at IBC 2019.
A simplified form of its CandyBox automation hardware, SoloCandy is a hardware control unit designed for operating televisions and set top boxes. SoloCandy has the capacity to test a single device at a time using its infrared technology to simulate various remote controllers. SoloCandy is fully integrated with the Suitest cloud, allowing users to execute end-to-end test scenarios from a Suitest account.   
SoloCandy, connected to a tester’s PC or to a Raspberry Pi; has the capacity to control physical devices enabling OTT providers to execute command sequences and automated end-to-end tests directly on the device. SoloCandy offers a cost-effective way for running test automation on a single device at a time, without the need for additional hardware. Adding compatibility with standard PCs increases flexibility and makes it easier than ever for anyone to use these tools. 

“With more and more devices and platforms being used than ever before, it is crucial that OTT developers and testers have a cost-effective method for testing platform compatibility, regardless of their size. Consumers have high expectations of user experience when interacting with OTT platforms; providers understand that software bugs can result in user churn. SoloCandy offers a cost-efficient way of testing OTT apps on infrared controlled living room devices.”
