The Compliance Test Plan (CTP) was created by DCI to provide a uniform testing procedure for demonstrating compliance with the DCSS. Manufacturers may demonstrate compliance by developing equipment in accordance with the DCSS and its referenced SMPTE, ISO and FIPS standards, and then submitting the equipment for testing to a third-party entity licensed by DCI to administer the CTP.
