Consumer Electronics

Consumer electronics characterize our day-to-day life like never before. Flat-screen TVs, game consoles or multi-room systems have become an indispensable part of our living rooms. To ensure that the focus in a home theater is on entertainment, and not on the issue of safety and reliability, the experts at the VDE Institute test and certify consumer electronics devices. Our tests include all important aspects related to safety, sustainability and user-friendliness.

Nowadays, safety means more than just protection from an electric shock or a short circuit that can set fire to the entire house. Since consumer electronics devices are becoming increasingly connected and information is not only exchanged among each other but also with external service providers, information security plays a major role. Not only are the devices themselves tested but also expanded services such as apps, cloud services, and the server centers of service providers.

At the VDE Institute, our experts test all aspects of current safety requirements, from electrical safety to the protection of transferred data – from standards advising to testing during the development process and even an assessment of the final product.
