Leading TV platform, Freesat, has become the latest company to have satellite receivers pass the European-wide assurance scheme for TV and Satellite distribution equipment known as the European IRS Certification Scheme (EICS).
Its UHD 4X 500 and UHD X receivers passed the test specification, demonstrating the high quality of the Freesat set top boxes and their compatibility with other products that pass the EICS within an Integrated Reception System.
The first scheme of its kind, the EICS test specification provides ‘reassurance of end-to-end device compatibility, interoperability and robust RF performance within satellite and DTT distribution systems.'
