AudioDev is BD test center certified

From 1 January, AudioDev Test Center has become the official Blu-ray Disc testing center for BD-ROM (Data/Video) in Europe after receiving its certification by the Blu-ray Disc Association.

"We have been working with measurement and verification of Blu-ray Discs for a very long time, even before the format received its official name. With this in mind, the decision to assume the role of official testing center was a logical next step for us" says Magnus Wikstrand, Senior Measurement Development Manager at AudioDev.

AudioDev has been a contributing member of the BDA since 2003 and the company has during this time taken an active role in the development of the specifications for the Blu-ray Disc format.

Through this approval, AudioDev will also act in the Verification Service Group (VSG) within the BDA. The VSG ensures the alignment between the different BD testing centers and defines their logistics and technical procedures and also organizes market inspections in order to maintain the quality of the products.

Before a licensed disc replicator can produce and sell BD media, the mechanical, optical and electrical properties of the discs have to be approved by an official BD testing centre.
