Press Release Body: London, 1st September 2008: Exterity, a specialist in network IPTV, will be demonstrating its full range of industry leading building IPTV solutions at IBC 2008, illustrating the products’ interoperability with every broadcast format, including SD, HD and H.264. Visitors to the stand (5.C30a) can see how using Exterity’s products will not only enable them to incorporate existing equipment into an IPTV system, but also future-proof their investment as the system can easily accommodate technological advancements such as HD. All products are ideally suited to the broadcast, corporate, education and hospitality sectors.
In addition to presenting a complete system in action, Exterity will also be showcasing its pioneering products, including the new HD encoder which is now shipping. The HD encoder transcends expectations of high definition broadcasting across building networks in almost every sector, representing an invaluable part of any building IPTV or digital signage system.
Also on display will be Exterity’s new prodaptor chassis, which was created in response to the rapid growth in IPTV take-up, with greater use of video as a critical information resource, coupled with customer demand for more capability in less IT rack space. Combined with complementary modules (including the HD encoder), the prodaptor provides users with a highly scalable IPTV system with built in redundancy and hot swap capabilities, giving superior levels of reliability compared with other products in the marketplace.
“IPTV within commercial and educational premises is quickly becoming a standard requirement for both new builds and re-fits. Exterity’s range of IPTV products make this easily and quickly achievable, demonstrating unsurpassed reliability and representing an excellent value proposition for corporate, education, hospitality and broadcast organisations,” comments Colin Farquhar, CEO of Exterity. “Visitors to IBC are invited to come to our stand and see exactly what is involved, as we have the full end-to-end system on show. The fact that our full range of products is compatible with any format, be it H.264, SD or HD means that our products are both backward and forward compatible, safeguarding our customers’ investments for the future.”
