Testronic Labs has expanded its Burbank-based Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD test facility, including emerging network-connected features.

The facility now offers testing and quality control services for Blu-ray, including HDMV, BD-J and BD-Live; and HD DVD, including HDi features such as Web connectivity.

"Since Blu-ray and HD DVD formats have been introduced to the home entertainment industry, there have been substantial changes to quality assurance services, especially with regard to the network-connected capabilities we are beginning to see on these projects," Testronic executive vp Seth Hallen said. "These high-definition disc projects have now become very sophisticated software projects."

Testronic has been working with businesses like Deluxe.
