ITU-T Test Signals for Telecommunication Systems


Many ITU-T Recommendations contain test signals intended to test end-to-end quality of telecommunications systems and to assess implementations conformity to specific Recommendation provisions. These test data cover the different types of media: audio, still images and moving images. ITU-T test signals are a highly valuable collection of more than 20 GB size that constitute a worldwide reference for assessing the different components of telecommunications systems. In order to facilitate their use, ITU-T test signals were grouped into a single database.
