Transcript

Hello, I’m Jim Jachetta, a CTO and co-founder of VidOvation. Welcome to our booth at NAB 2024. In case you couldn’t join us at the show this year, I’m giving a little preview of some of the things we have in our booth.

So here we have our IPTV offering. So many of our enterprise IPTV and digital signage solutions included integration of DirecTV. So here we have a small DirecTV COM3000 high-density receiver.

We have versions of this platform that can receive up to 138 DirecTV channels simultaneously in three rack units. The small unit here can receive 43 channels of DirecTV in one rack unit. Our IPTV system is based on our middleware.

The middleware controls the set-top boxes and manages the smart TVs. We work with Samsung and LG hospitality-grade smart TVs, as well as various set-top boxes, amino set-top boxes, and LG set-top boxes. It’s also common to integrate house feeds, in-house feeds, or internal feeds into the television system.

For many of our studio or broadcast customers, we integrate stage feeds into the television system so that executives don’t have to get up and go down to the soundstage to watch what’s going on in the production. They can keep an eye on the production through the television system. As I mentioned, we integrate digital signage.

So, your television system is not only for entertainment purposes; it can also be used for information or marketing purposes. So, in common areas like lobbies, break areas, or casino floors, we’ve implemented systems in convention centers like the LVCC. You might want a mixture of live television content with digital signage for informational purposes.

So please contact VidOvation if you need a means of distributing live television on your network or better known as IPTV or digital signage. Thank you so much and have a great day.
