The live HD channel from satellite was captured by Exterity’s DVB-S TV gateway and distributed as IPTV on a local area network, before being received and decoded by Exterity HD receivers on the network. Netvue also showed full HD H.264 video IPTV encoding, from Exterity’s first production HD IPTV encoder.
Netvue also showed live SD IPTV distribution, wireless IPTV units and Digital Signage at the one day event. The company’s IPTV systems offer busineses all the benefits of live broadcast TV on their IT computer network, including TV on computer desktops, Video on Demand and Digital Signage.
It was HD over IPTV that really stole the show at Netvue’s event though. As Robin Howell, Managing Director of systems integrator Wire: Broadcast said when he visited Netvue’s event, “If you can demonstrate HD over IPTV like this, it shows that SD over IPTV is absolutely no problem”.
