Introduction to digital camera testing

Usability Testing

We devise tests that are easy to use and understand and take into account ever-changing configurations and combinations from the user operation standpoint, from items in user manuals to all actual use situations such as recording, playback and editing.

Functional Testing

We conduct testing of photographic environment and settings combinations taking into consideration differences in derivative models and existing function/newly added function combinations, anchored in "recording", "playback" and "editing" functions.

Exterior device connectivity testing

We conduct digital cameras and exterior device connectivity tests, confirming data transfer and inter-device linkages centered on connectivity for TVs (AV, HDMI), printers (PictBridge) and PCs (USB).

Recording media testing

We conduct testing of compatible recording media (such as SD cards and memory sticks) by their capacity and manufacturer. We conduct testing of changes in reading and writing to recordable media and recordable media conditions (data number, free disk space).

Off-site Testing

Our own specialist test engineers bring test cases back to our test centers (in Osaka and Tokyo) where staff is assigned only for actual test periods to contribute to cost reduction, overtime man-hour reduction during peak production periods, and on call man-hour reduction during off-season periods among our customers.

Our test engineers employ their rich experience in functional testing of digital cameras and digital movie cameras, and stand ready to respond to customer needs from the test planning stage to summary presentation.



Off-site testing
Even with off-site testing, Valtes' testing engineers draft test documents (test plan prospectus, test design and specs prospectus and test cases), execute testing and then report on issues such as malfunctions in house at Valtes facilities. An intimate communications system is established between Valtes and the customer to ensure quality and thoroughness with review hearings and quality status reporting conducted at customer sites.

Service Flow

Leave everything from software test project planning to execution to us

Software test planning

Through our comprehensive test project planning, we can help you determine precisely what kinds of testing, functional testing, scheduling and man-hours, and testing range are required.

Software test design

From test target specifications and manuals, we ascertain "functions" and "approaches" and compile them into a task list to prevent possible test oversight. In addition, we draft test cases utilizing various techniques to enable the most efficient test execution for specific needs.

Software Test Execution

Execution of testing is based on test case results. If we encounter bugs, we compile an incident report and report to the particular software developer involved.

Summary Presentation

We analyze test results and any abnormalities we may find and reflect our findings in summary reports that can be used as reference for future projects. Our product and project reports reports also include third party recommendations.

Valtes is a company that specializes in software testing in a wide variety of fields

Software testing solutions

As a company that specializes in software testing, we execute and provide optimal test planning.

We conduct combined testing centered on common user functions and newly equipped functions for efficient and sure extermination of malfunctions. Our testing extends beyond domestic equipment to products built with specifications for overseas markets in Asia, the U.S. and Europe.

Staff Voices

We give thorough support to building in quality
that won't confuse the user.

From entry models to high-end and single reflex lens models, we handle all types of digital cameras. The digital camera market has become very competitive in recent years with new functionality added every season, and thereby presenting us with the challenge of keeping current with and finding ways to efficiently test for and detect malfunctions.

Moreover, we pay special attention to usability issues such as "user-friendliness" so that digital cameras can perform as effective and easy to use tools for recording important memories on a daily basis. We need to be able to extract testing needs based not only on the variety of digital cameras on the market, but knowledge of past models and those of different manufacturers as well as word-of-mouth sites on the Internet. As a result, we are constantly undertaking a process of trial-and-error in our effort to ensure the highest customer satisfaction possible.
