Video encoding and streaming solutions technology provider Vitec has announced a strategic partnership with ATX Networks to provide what it says is a fully secure architecture for distribution of IPTV content.

vitec 2June2018Content will be delivered via ATX’s carrier-grade UCrypt IP gateways and Vitec’s EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform — designed to automate video streaming workflows over IP networks — that allows users to manage IPTV streams centrally from a single interface. The platform supports both H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) formats in resolutions up to 4K and is said to offer low-latency playback; real-time updating of the electronic programme guide; video-on-demand content with updating of new assets in real time; time-shifted TV; live video access via PC and mobile; and user-controlled mosaic viewing of multiple channels.

The system is available for desktop users via a browser player, for TV and signage displays utilizing EZ TV end-points, and for Android and iOS users using EZ TV’s mobile app.

“As content security becomes an increasing priority and a key requirement for any size IPTV project, this new AES content protection capability and the integration with Vitec’s EZ TV Platform is an exciting expansion of benefits for customers,” said Ian Lerner, chief product officer, media distribution solutions, at ATX. “The addition of AES output encryption support allows partners like Vitec to have a more practical and cost-effective way to ensure encrypted streams from the UCrypt IP video gateway can only be viewed by authorised users.”

“IP-based video distribution of live cable and satellite TV content brings a broad range of advantages for any organisation seeking to cost-effectively and securely deliver high-quality content to any screen and any user in the organization,” added Eli Garten, vice president of enterprise video solutions at Vitec. “This latest integration enables our customers to achieve maximum protection with a simple, reliable set-up that is approved by leading service providers.”
