GlobalNet Launches VectorMAX IPTV Platform
NEW YORK and BOGOTA, Colombia — GlobalNet, a national carrier in Bogota, Colombia, launched “GlobalPlay,” an IPTV service utilizing the VectorMAX TV Anywhere™ end to end, completely software based, IPTV delivery Platform.
VectorMAX Corporation, based in Farmingdale, New York, is a leading provider of turn-key IPTV transport technologies.
VectorMAX engineers set up and deployed the GlobalPlay offering during a 60 day installation process. GlobalPlay delivers SD & HD live channels to the Colombian market. The VectorMAX Platform is fully 4K capable, which GlobalNet will implement when 4K content is available. GlobalPlay’s IPTV service also incorporates VectorMAX collateral service capabilities, including delivery of weather and news information, provisioning for video and music content and a carrier controlled “closed wall” environment for a wide range of set top box applications.
VectorMAX also supplied GlobalNet with branded IP set top boxes, providing a complete end to end turnkey solution for the GlobalPlay service.
IPTV represents the next advancement of television and rich media content delivery. Carriers worldwide are deploying IPTV as a means of retaining and attracting subscribers, generating high margin revenues and further diversifying their revenue centers. To deliver IPTV, carriers must install and maintain hardware based high bandwidth capable network infrastructure.
TV Anywhere™ enables carriers to deliver live linear IP broadcast channels and other rich media content over their existing or otherwise limited networks. VectorMAX’s TV Anywhere™ IPTV Delivery Platform is a complete end to end, software based, IPTV delivery platform. TV Anywhere™ utilizes the VSP-2™ transport protocol incorporating VectorMAX’s ground breaking transport stream architecture.
When delivering to subscribers on the carrier’s network (ON), TV Anywhere™ is implemented at the carrier’s network operating center (NOC), providing all the required transport functionality.
When delivering to subscribers over the internet (OTT), TV Anywhere™ is implemented in the Cloud, providing all the functionality of a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
TV Anywhere™ enables service providers to quickly and cost effectively deploy IPTV to set top boxes, PCs/Macs, Apple iOS and Google Android mobile devices.
