Recent technological developments have removed a significant cost barrier to a Premium Entertainment Distribution Platform. Streamvision’s new technology eliminates re-cabling costs, making upgrades possible for venues of any size.
Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), has been growing in popularity across the hospitality, gaming and most recently – Aged Care industries. The ability to distribute Digital Signage, Free to Air (FTA) channels, satellite TV, radio, digital video, DVD, Video on Demand (VOD), web content and much more all from a single point of management, has made IPTV the ideal Venue Entertainment Solution. This content has always been delivered via the venue’s LAN network, and requires each TV or signage panel to be connected by Ethernet cabling.
The IPTV Cost Barrier
However, most properties that were not built recently will only have a coaxial network implemented at their venue. A venue looking to keep up with the competition would have had to undergo expensive re-cabling projects just to implement a solution. In this past this has created a significant IPTV cost barrier for venues. The cost of re-cabling can exceed $20,000 for smaller businesses and $60,000+ for larger businesses.
Fortunately, recent technological developments have eliminated this particular problem. Streamvision has created a better solution by completely removing the need for additional Ethernet cabling to be installed. We have developed proprietary software that allows a premium and profitable solution to be implemented over your existing coaxial infrastructure. This has been done without any performance decreases and has resulted in big financial savings
“This is a huge move for Streamvision because it now enables smaller chains and venues that were hindered by initial costs and reduces barriers to access new and unexplored sources of revenue ” explains Greg Bassine, CEO of Streamvision. “It also makes IPTV that much more attractive to the bigger players in the industry.”
