TESTRONIC OPENS VIRTUAL REALITY TESTING CENTER, INTRODUCES NEW COO
HPA member and Creativity & Innovation Award winner, Testronic, have announced the expansion of their testing and QA capabilities to include Virtual Reality testing with the opening of the Testronic VR Testing Center. The VR Testing Center is now part of Testronic’s testing operations in Warsaw, Poland, a facility purpose-built to test games, entertainment content, consumer electronics, and software.
The VR service offering is the result of the company’s long term VR strategy, to enable their customers to be confident that the experience they are providing is the very best, and most reliable, that it can be. Jason Gish, Senior VP and GM of Testronic US noted, “Virtual Reality is as exciting as it is challenging. With such an incredibly complex environment, QA and testing must adapt in kind. Instead of the normal functionality and compatibility focus, much of the VR QA focus is on user experience. With our history in UX and our vast experience in games, TV and Film QA, Testronic is uniquely positioned and qualified for a variety of content in VR.”
The company has also recently announced additions to its senior management team. Keith Ramsdale has come on board as COO of Testronic. A respected presence in the games industry, Ramsdale served as SVP of Electronic Arts for nearly two decades before joining Testronic.
Testronic plays an active role in the HPA community, and Gish has recently stepped up to help present the HPA SCRG events.
