Exterity Launches New IPTV Encoder For IP Networks

Exterity, a specialist in network IPTV, has upgraded its existing AV Encoder and launched the new Exterity IPTV Encoder. The new MPEG-2 encoding module is blade-based, and unlike the previous AV Encoder, is able to support widescreen encoding (16:9 aspect ratio). It allows content from devices such as a digital camera, satellite set-top box or DVD player to be streamed as a channel on the building's IP network, and is ideal for use as part of any IPTV deployment.

Working with MPEG-2 encoding standards, the IPTV Encoder supports RGBS video, composite and S-Video inputs using phono and S-Video connectors. The channels generated by the IPTV encoders can be viewed using an IPTV receiver or a networked PC using a streaming video client application such as Exterity's AvediaCentre.

The new IPTV Encoder is available exclusively in a modular blade format. The blade format means that field upgrade, expansion and replacement is fast and easy, eliminating the need for system downtime during maintenance.

The new encoder can also support the French analogue TV system SECAM, so that organisations, for example within the education sector, can capture French satellite feeds to provide foreign language TV to staff and students in a cost effective way.
