As a film and television studio, you’re so focused on what you produce for others to watch that you may miss your opportunities with IPTV and digital signage. What your employees watch on your property matters and can benefit your productions and company. At VidOvation, we have experience providing completely turnkey IPTV and digital signage solutions for film and television studios. So, we can explain how this technology supports your studio and the benefits that we’ve seen our customers get from it.
What is IPTV and Digital Signage?
IPTV is Internet Protocol Television. There’s no reason to run RF coaxial cables throughout your film or TV studio. Instead, the video content is streamed across your corporate network to screens across the enterprise. IPTV is a convenient way to stream the information or content you need throughout your facility. For example, we can stream camera feeds from your production floors, your training, or marketing materials. Alternatively, we can help you legally stream outside content, from DirecTV, DISH Network, Cable, Over-the-Air TV, Government Emergency Alerts, etc.
You don’t need to limit your streaming to television screens. We also can send the streams to desktops and mobile, making work much more convenient for employees. Consider adding IPTV to your offices, conference rooms, and public areas. You may even want some IPTV to face potential guests and customers who walk through the door.
Watch the Production Floor
The most apparent use for IPTV as a film and TV studio is to stream cameras from the production floor to other areas of your building, or potentially other buildings or locations entirely. Watching live studio feeds is very helpful for staff to monitor the quality of production or ensure that the production is on time and on budget. In addition, executives watching the production always have the opportunity to dial up the production floor and ask questions or give directions.
Other Internal Feeds
Every organization the size of a film or television studio has other internal content that they may want or need to broadcast to employees. Sales meetings, training videos, updates from executives, and so much more internal content can all be streamed to employees throughout the building or only in select areas. This is highly convenient for keeping your whole organization up to date on the company information they need to know. That includes emergencies. Your system can display emergency information in case you need it.
VidOvation also has the competency to get you a wide variety of external feeds playing in your film and television studio. Completely legally, you can get a variety of different outside content, including:
- Cable channels: We can provide you with any typical cable content useful for your company, including whether content, community news, traffic, and more.
- Local content: You can add in content from local cable operators to get the more local content that you may need to monitor or just enjoy. Hyperlocal and free content is often not available on satellite, so that is a huge advantage of IPTV.
- Satellite content: the VidOvation IPTV system integrates with DirecTV and DISH Network to extend the channel lineup to include sports, news, entertainment, and more.
- Over-the-Air TV: Local over-the-air TV content is an additional source for local or hyperlocal television programming.
- Competitor content: Monitor and analyze networks and studios you compete with simply and consistently throughout your property.
When using IPTV, you can sync up videos between multiple locations, regardless of the time zone or other restrictions. This way, you can make sure that everyone across your organization is on the same page, whether they need to see the same training materials or watch the same production floors live. The advantage of IPTV is that it is entirely customizable to your needs, so new executives can change the broadcast and achieve consistency with their goals and the information that they need to broadcast.
What If You Need More?
Whether you need more screens or you want to add content, like Cabel TV content or monitoring for a brand new production floor, you can do it. VidOvation installs systems for IPTV and digital signage that are entirely scalable, which means that we can add more as your studio grows. This can be very helpful for smaller studios who, at first, don’t want to strain their budgets by investing in more IPTV than they need right now.
