announces a new WebTV feature for its Flamingo range of IPTV head-end products. The Anevia Flamingo 660 and the recently released high-density Flamingo XL are rack mountable IPTV head-end units. The Flamingo 660 and Flamingo XL capture live TV & radio content from satellite, cable, digital terrestrial and analog sources before streaming it over IP networks to set-top boxes, PCs, or other IP connected devices.
The new Flamingo WebTV feature allows hotels, hospitals, and other hospitality service providers to receive and re-transmit Web-based television content including special interest and foreign language television channels not available locally. The WebTV channels are streamed across the local network as any other channel and can be integrated into existing middleware and mosaic generation platforms.
WebTV is complimented by the Flamingo WebRadio feature for streaming both audio and video content from Web-based sources.
The WebTV feature is available as part of the Flamingo 3.2 software version for both existing and new Flamingo XL and Flamingo 660 owners.
