So what is IPTV?
IPTV, or Internet Protocol Television is quickly becoming a global talking point in the broadcast and telecommunications industry. So what actually is IPTV and why is it causing such a stir?
IPTV is transforming they way in which we watch and interact with television. Essentially it is the delivery of television, including video on demand (VOD), over a broadband connection using Internet Protocols.
IPTV is a system which effectively receives and displays a video stream encoded as a series of Internet Protocol packets. If you have ever viewed a video clip on your computer, you have done so using an IPTV system in its widest sense.
How can IPTV benefit my business?
The benefits that IPTV can bring to your business are astonishing. Corporate IPTV can be run over your LAN (Local Area Network) or if required a WAN (Wide Area Network).
- The ability to show live briefings and stream presentations directly to desktops around your company
- Distribution of multiple television channels to multiple business sites.
- Provide your employees and visitors with a customer TV channel delivering your own branded content through digital signage
- Integration with your existing company network, effectively creating a ‘plug and play’ digital signage mechanism
