How it works
In reality, IPTV technology enables an organisation’s IP network to carry much more than just television. With IPTV, you can easily distribute terrestrial and satellite television and radio, videos, DVDs, digital videos on-demand (VoDs), digital signage, information boards, and web content throughout your facility. All of this multimedia content can be viewed on standard and high definition TVs and various kinds of AV display equipment, as well as PCs on every desktop.
Building IPTV is designed to distribute television and video across building and campus networks over a local area network (LAN). The content is injected directly into the building LAN rather than through the organisation’s internet firewall. For organisations, this has three fundamental advantages over consumer-oriented forms of IPTV:
- It leverages the comparatively limitless bandwidth of organisational LANs to deliver much higher quality to many more users.
- It allows much more stringent access control—not just by channel, but by business unit, department, group, or even individual user.
- It does not consume any internet bandwidth, which is far more costly than LAN bandwidth
