IPTV provider Exterity says its enhanced platform, the AvediaServer 4, features a new app-based interface, with each app providing a specific set of features and functionality, ranging from VOD control to encrypted content. Users can add new apps as they become available.? ?
According to Exterity, one click on a Web interface, a physical button press or a command from third-party technology will activate a series of instructions within AvediaServer – anything from simple channel changes to a complex set of actions affecting multiple screens and activities.
“Macro functions can be used to ensure complex and time-consuming instructions are carried out accurately and quickly. Stadium or transport hubs are fantastic example of this, where multiple screens on large sites need changed quickly,” it explains, adding a series of buttons could trigger different messages on screens depending on the event – a goal being scored, a security message or advertising. Equally, channel changes and other tasks can be activated site-wide via a single click from a Web page without direct access the server.? ?
“The new server represents a significant step forward by giving companies the flexibility of a solution that will work off the shelf as well as something they can make truly custom if required,” notes CEO Colin Farquhar. “As always, it allows companies to share video in an efficient and controlled way, enhancing both staff and customer communications.”
