IPTV distribution for TV Broadcasters
Seeing what the competition is doing on scores of other channels is only one requirement of a TV distribution system which is going to provide a competitive edge in today’s TV Broadcast industry. It needs to be flexible, provide value added services for your clients and reduce those all important operating costs. IPTV technology delivers these benefits.
An IPTV system distributes live or prerecorded TV and video as data streams over your existing data network. It has the capacity for hundreds of channels (gone is the 30 or so limit of an “RF ring main” system), unlimited numbers of viewing points, consistent guaranteed quality and shares the resilience of your data network. Wherever you have a data network outlet you can connect a TV or a PC which can display the channels you choose.
Shared TVs consuming space, power and maintenance resources can be replaced by individual viewing on PC screens. But the same system still allows you to display TV channels onto large Plasma or LCD screens with stunning picture quality. Office moves are as quick and simple as connecting a data network point - no more coaxial cabling with the attendant disruption, delays and expense.
Value added services for your clients include flexible screen based signage and configurable closed group monitoring of sources. This means, for example, setting a studio output so it can only be viewed in areas of your choice such as green rooms and other client areas. This facility can be extended to remote sites through the use of secure video streaming over the Internet so clients could be offered a monitoring feed in their own offices of studio rehearsals or real time editing activities in AVID suites.
Satellite, Freeview, High Definition TV (HDTV), multiple audio PIDs and subtitles are all catered for along with the ability to select which channels can be viewed at which points giving total control of your TV distribution system.
