IPTV and High Definition TV
The arrival of High Definition TV (HDTV) transmissions via satellite platforms raises the question of how LAN based IPTV distribution systems will cope with the eventual demand from users for HDTV. The answer lies with Exterity’s new range of HD IPTV products which include a DVB S2 Satellite TV Gateway, HD encoder and HD IPTV receiver.
The introduction of HD products typically is a reflection of the pace of development in the IPTV market and how it affects customers planning for the future. Product development is proceeding at such a pace that, in terms of longer project timescales, it could be argued that a specification sheet represents no more than a snapshot in time of a product on the path to full development. In this respect, Exterity’s unique position in the marketplace as a supplier of end to end IPTV systems carries great weight. Exterity supplies a full range of IPTV components which offer guaranteed interoperability meaning equipment can be specified in the knowledge that subsequent development of system components will not call into question overall system performance.
Regardless of whether HDTV is delivered by satellite or terrestrial or both and which compression standard prevails, an IPTV solution from Exterity offers the peace of mind of a road map for distribution of HDTV within your organization.
