No part-time testing is allowed.  All teams are expected to participate full time in this event.
Each team must participate with its own registered device(s) full time.  No part-time sink/source testing, and no sharing of devices are allowed. 
Each team is required to have an independent identified team leader.
For the integrity of the event’s test schedule, companies intending to register multiple Source test teams with fewer than 2 Source devices and/or identical Source devices on multiple Source test teams, may be required to consolidate their Source test teams in order for the event to achieve balance (near equal ratio between Sink and Source teams/devices testing against each other) and to reduce the number of idle test slots in the event’s test schedule.
Participants in the PlugFest must execute a Participant Agreement for each PlugFest Event. This Agreement includes bilateral privacy protection for participants, among other terms. Only 1 executed CTA-861 PlugFest23 Participant Agreement is needed in order to cover your company's participating individuals and subsidiaries. Contractors assisting your team need to submit a Participant Agreement as well. Participant Agreements must be submitted by October 16, 2017 to PlugFest@cta.tech or via fax at 703-907-8132.

CTA R4.8 DTV Interface Subcommittee:
CTA hosts the R4.8 DTV Interface Subcommittee which establishes standards and guidelines for RF, analog and digital interfaces for the purpose of defining connectivity and interoperability among analog/digital TV receivers and other consumer devices that deliver analog and digital A/V and other digital data services.
To join the R4.8 DTV Interface Subcommittee contact: Standards@cta.tech.

CTA PlugFest Activities:
CTA conducts innovative PlugFests each year focusing on connectivity and interoperability. These events allow manufacturers to come together and test interfaces in a semi-private, round robin fashion. Designers can sort out connectivity issues between different manufacturers before products get in consumers hands.
