What are the low latency or low delay wireless video options?

Many applications such as sports, studio, and cinema productions require a low latency camera mount wireless video solutions.  In sports a live video feed to a big screen showing live action of the field or ice requires very low latency.  In studio or cinema production low latency is required for video assist and for pulling focus.

The VidOlink Reacher family has options to transmit video 400, 1500 or 3000 feet with less than 3 msec latency.  Visit the VidOlink Reacher 400, VidOlink Reacher 1500 and VidOlink reacher 3000.  The VidOlink Reacher features good video quality at a moderate price point.

What TV content integrates with the VidOvation Enterprise IPTV system?

Options are available to integrate an extensive library of media files to be played as video on demand (VOD).

Do I need Digital Rights Management (DRM) for my Enterprise IPTV system?

In the case of DirecTV and Dish Network, they use encryption called Pro:Idiom and it can be

problematic. DirecTV and Dish Network will not turn off encryption unless you have an

approved DRM system or digital rights management system.  You want to make sure you ask your IPTV vendor, “Do you have an approved DRM system approved by DirecTV and Dish Network?” The VidOvation IPTV DRM system is approved by DirecTV and Dish Network.  DirecTV, Dish Network and the Studios all mandate encryption of all television IP streams with an approved DRM system.  The goal is to prevent copyright violations.  

What display devices can I use with my VidOvation IPTV system?

A typical RF coaxial television system is only going to allow for the distribution to specific

displays and TV’s.  Do you need to access video content over the corporate wide area network at the desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, set-top box, Smart TV, TVs, and Displays?  If yes, VidOvation IPTV is the right choices. The way users function and interact in the corporate

setting is rapidly changing. We are not bound to the displays in our offices, break rooms,

hallways, lobbies etc. We need to access our corporate content right at our fingertips on ANY

device. This is an absolute necessity for your enterprise content delivery network.

Can I integrate Digital Signage into the VidOvation Enterprise IPTV System?
