IPTV TV, video on demand and information in care centre

During the renovation of its monumental building and the construction of a new building in Schijndel, the St. Barbara care centre felt the need for a better, modern and future-proof IPTV solution. For the new solution it was important that the user had the flexibility to, for example, add video sources and to be able to update the system itself.

Interactive IPTV

System integrator Mansveld has been approached by St. Barbara to install an IPTV system for this new building. Mansveld turned to Intronics and found the perfect solution in Exterity. The challenge for Intronics was the delivery of an IPTV system which offers 25 tv channels to each client. In addition, video had to be available from the chapel for the clients who are not mobile.

Besides their furniture, clients also bring their own television tot the care centre. This means that the system had to be compatible with the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) principle, whereby both a digital and an analogue television can be connected.

Project management by Intronics

The professionals of Intronics supervise the project up to and including commissioning. Installation is well prepared in such a way that the adjustments and possible expansions can be realized with minimal investment. The system can easily be kept up to date and expanded by the system integrator Mansveld. This way, transmitters can always be added. The Exterity IPTV system is suitable for the distribution of both analogue and digital audio/video sources. Exterity offers all these possibilities with AvediaServer, satellite gateways, encoders and AvediaPlayers.
In addition to healthcare, many industries are opting for superior image quality, greater flexibility and scalability of an IPTV solution, among others:
  • Shopping malls
  • Public events
  • In-house video
  • Hotels/restaurants
  • Airports
  • Education
  • Corporate
  • Stages
  • Finance
  • Oil & Gas
  • Broadcasting

What are the advantages of IPTV over a traditional television network?

  • Increased capacity: the number of television channels to be received is only limited by the bandwidth capacity of the network; the transmitter offer can be composed by the operator.
  • High scalability: IPTV service can be provided at any point in the network.
  • Consistently high quality: any display in the network can offer high quality video from SD to HD resolutions.
  • Extensive management functionality: the IPTV system can be managed and controlled from a single server at any point in the network.
  • More flexibility: television can be viewed from a PC and/or TV.
  • When using a wireless network (WiFi), television can also be watched on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Interactive functions such as VOD (video on demand), time shifting (the recording of a programme to a storage medium for later viewing) and MOD (music on demand) are available.
  • An electronic program guide (EPG) provides a quick overview of the programs on all available television channels.
