IPTV systems have quickly replaced traditional RF-based MATV distribution as a way to efficiently move video content on corporate networks.
Ahead of the Integrate show this week in Sydney, OnAir Solutions had a visit from Brown Lin from WellAV, showing off the latest CMP-200 modular IPTV platform.
The CMP-200 covers a range of IPTV solutions, including:
• Receiving free-to-air DVB-T channels
• Receiving cable and satellite channels with CAM slots for descrambling content
• Encoding HDMI sources for standalone players
• Repackaging streams and services
• Output to both standard MATV (DVB-T) and IP
As a demo exercise, the tech team from OnAir Solutions setup the WellAV CMP-200 to receive off-air TV and retransmit it on our internal network. Pictured is a free-to-air stream playing over our network, using multicast to ensure the stream is only delivered to network ports requesting it.
IPTV gives excellent efficiencies, removing the need for RF cabling and utilising existing network cabling. You can easily distribute one hundred channels on a standard office or campus network. IPTV streams can be received on PCs, IP set-top-boxes and some newer Smart TVs.
Brown Lin from WellAV and Paul Dengate from OnAir Solutions will be at Integrate stand A47 from 22nd-24th August 2018.
