Audio Test Services from Optimal Sound
Optimal Sound provides complete logo testing services for audio devices and the audio portion of the system logo tests. The audio fidelity test logs generated by Optimal Sound can be combined with device or system logs created at the system vendor's site, in order to complete WHQL device or system submissions. All system IDs and device IDs must match (not just audio device ID) in order for logs to be included in this fashion.
In the case that a test is failing, Optimal Sound can make recommendations on how to resolve the issue in the quickest and most cost-effective manner possible.
The new Audio Fidelity tests are required for both audio device and overall system logo submissions for Vista. Completed audio fidelity test logs must be included with the submission.
While usability testing is always an important concern, it is especially important given all the changes to audio found in Microsoft Vista. Usability testing is largely an iterative process, and is fundamentally different from functional testing. Usability testing observes how typical users perform critical tasks using the system being tested, and then factors corrections into the next development release, where the usability is again tested with a new group of test subjects. Optimal Sound can perform usability testing for you.
Functional testing is the process of determining whether the audio subsystem performs as expected. Rather than running a battery of automated tests, functional testers perform common tasks and verify correct results. Unlike usability testing, the same team of functional testers deployed for each successive development release. Functional testing should be employed for each piece of audio-enabled software shipped on a system. For instance, if your system includes a media jukebox program, then both the media jukebox and Windows Media Player should be tested to verify that they both play all popular audio file formats. Optimal Sound can perform audio functional testing for you.
Optimal Sound provides training in basic audio troubleshooting techniques , including how to determine whether an issue is HW or SW, and other ways to identify and resolve audio issues.
Use Optimal Sound to add an audio expert to your team, ensuring that your systems are easy to understand, functioning properly with Windows 7 and, of course, sounding great. Contact us for more info.
