Start with a PON and add a splash of STB. Make sure your MPEG-2 or H.264 is garnished with some CA and DRM. The end result may be FiOS or Max but it's all IPTV.
Are you confused? We sure are…
Hello. We'd like to welcome all our viewers to another episode of "TVover.net's Cookin' for the Mass Scale." Today, we are going to show you how to make mouth watering and nutritious IPTV Acronym Soup just like Grandma used to make. This seemingly easy delicacy proves to be quite a difficult task with the various flavors and ingredients out on the market.
Below are the ingredients for IPTV Acronym Soup, just assembled in a different manner. This recipe is always a hit at our house. We rarely have any leftovers!
-3 teaspoons set-top box (STB)
-1 cup IP video headend
-3 lbs passive optical network (PON)
-1 tablespoon conditional access/digital rights management (CA/DRM)
-1 tablespoon management
-content (MPEG-2 or H.264/MPEG-4)
For IPTV, combine sweet and tangy set-top box, video headend and PON in a large saucepan. Stir in CA/DRM. Cook, stirring, for several hours until thickened. Remove from heat, stir in management. Carefully roll out the end result. Garnish with content. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
All clear now? Perhaps not…
Let's step back and define exactly what IPTV is.
