How it Works

IPTV is a completely scalable solution to your video distribution needs. The DVB Gateways or encoders convert TV broadcasts or other video sources to IP network streams. The IDT system can manage an unlimited number of TV channels, and using a multicast enabled IP network deliver these to an unlimited number of display devices.

A system administrator can then control who can see what TV channels, and either through a web connection or via mobile device control all of this from anywhere. The TV content can also be wrapped in a smart branded layout, that can include active information widgets, providing a very basic digital signage capability.
