CESI was founded in 1963 as a professional institute for standardization work in the fields of electronics and information technology under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), China. CESI Tech is capable of providing tests not only for DisplayPort, HDMI and USB, but also for Blu-ray, DLNA and Dolby.
