About DPL Labs

DPL Laboratories, Inc. (DPL Labs) was founded in 2007 by President Jeffrey Boccaccio, one of the industry’s foremost experts on high-bandwidth digital signaling solutions. He also is the creator of the Digital Performance Level Program (DPL Program) – a Digital-HD (DHD) product performance testing program.

Boccaccio created a world-class state-of-the-art digital technology testing laboratory at DPL Labs headquarters facility in Ormond Beach; FL. DPL's laboratory provides highly precise and critically accurate Digital-HD (DHD) product performance testing. Utilizing an exhaustive, multi-element testing regime, DPL Labs engineers put all submitted products through an electronic torture test. Only the best can pass the test.

For those products that excel above and beyond the minimum DPL requirement, DPL Labs awards their prestigious “Seal of Approval.” This seal assures you of a product that will exceed your expectations in both performance quality and long-term reliability.

DPL Labs works with some of the finest product brands in the industry who are committed to building a better product. As part of the testing process, manufacturers receive a full engineering report on the actual performance of each individual element of their design. With this information, they can work with their engineering teams to continuously improve their future product designs. Only use Digital-HD (DHD) products bearing the DPL Seal of Approval when you want the best performance and reliability from your home entertainment system.

DPL Expands to Full 4K Product Certification

DPL Labs introduced the first independent Digital-HD (DHD) performance testing and certification program.  By way of hundreds of case studies and thousands of hours of research, DPL Labs developed a testing program that enabled manufactures to measure the performance and reliability of their products.  Products that met the strict DPL performance criteria were given the DPL Seal of Approval and published on the DPL Approved Products web pages so integrators, retailers and end users could easily find the best performing and most reliable Digital-HD (DHD) products.

Over a year’s worth of additional research and development has resulted in improved testing procedures, upgraded test equipment and the introduction of new state of the art software culminating in DPL’s New Expanded 4K Product Certification Program. Designed to combat the fears of display and cable manufacturers as well as end users, the expanded 4K testing program now includes a battery of additional tests and offers two levels of 4K certification encompassing the entire 18Gbps spectrum.  In addition, the new program integrates DPL’s in depth experience with past Digital-HD (DHD) issues and failures to instill confidence in the reliability of certified products.
