NTT Resonant's Cloud-based Testing Service "Remote TestKit"
Introduces New Feature
- Significantly Improves Efficiency and Quality of Mobile Tests by Automatically Recording Test Operations for Easy Error Reports -
NTT Resonant Inc. is excited to announce that it has started offering a new feature that automatically records all operations taken on mobile devices during the time you rent them on cloud-based testing service “Remote TestKit” (Note 1).
This new feature can be compared to a car dashboard camera recorder as it automatically logs all operations and records what was displayed on the screens of mobile devices in Remote TestKit from the beginning to the end of the rental period. You can replay the recorded video from the logged operation history. If an error occurs during testing, it would normally take time to determine when and during what operation the error took place. With the new feature, however, you can use the operation history to review the specific operation on video. This reduces the amount of time spent by testers reproducing the error.
1. Main Features
A. Automatically record operation history
Without any need to turn on the function, video recording will automatically commence at the start of the rental. If an error occurs during testing, you can readily review the operation via recorded video.
B. Review operations and video simultaneously
In the operation history, text input, taps and other operations are displayed and a video clip of the mobile device screen for those operations is displayed on the recorded screen. When you want to review the video, you can click on the specific operation in the history or use the “video seek bar” to search for the section you wish to review.
C. Sharing (export history)
You can save and share the recorded operation, video and screenshots. Also, instead of sharing the entire operation period, you can export a specific duration that you choose on the operation list such as the time surrounding an error. This improves efficiency when reviewing errors.
2. Usage Overview
A. Logging and recording will start automatically. When you want to review something, these are displayed from the menu.

B. Operations taken will be displayed in an overview in the operation history. A video clip of the device screen for each test or operation will be also displayed on the recorded screen. When you choose an operation in the history, video footage starting at the commencement of that operation will be replayed.
