VITEC Announces New Multicast-to-the-Edge HTML5 IPTV Player and Offers Early Adopter Program for Existing Enterprise IPTV Platform Customers

VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced it has launched an early adopter program for its enterprise customers to deploy and test its latest radical innovation, EZ TV Player Lite™. The new EZ TV Player Lite HTML5 browser-based player is a central component of the company's award-winning EZ TV IPTV & Digital Signage Platform, serving more than a million users in the corporate, government, military, and sports venue sectors.

HTML5 has become the technology of choice in the enterprise video industry, despite significant compromises in infrastructure costs, latency, and duplication of video streams due to the absence of multicast video support. VITEC's latest patent-pending technology uniquely enables multicast delivery of live and recorded video streams, all the way to enterprise users' computers, without going through multi-unicast distribution servers. The innovative EZ TV Player Lite solution is an intuitive HTML5 application that enables organizations to scale live multicast video services to any size user base without the major costs associated with traditional on-premise transcoding equipment, CDN subscriptions, and costly seat-licenses that result in compromised network bandwidth utilization.

Peter Thomas Is Honoured By The Institute of Professional Sound Posted: 20/12/2019
Peter Thomas Is Honoured By The Institute of Professional Sound

 

PMC’s founder and CEO Peter Thomas has been awarded a Fellowship by the Institute of Professional Sound (IPS) in recognition of his contribution to the professional audio industry.

IPS Chairman Simon Clark says: “We have honoured Peter for the significant impact he has had on the audio industry through pushing the boundaries of monitor design to achieve more accuracy, particularly at higher volumes. PMC’s Advanced Transmission Line system for bass loading is unique and has delivered noticeable improvements in audio quality over conventional loudspeaker design principles. It is fair to say that Peter’s work in this area has been transformative and has resulted in loudspeaker products that are the world’s reference for mastering and for the bulk of music production.”

As a charitable organisation that champions the highest quality of sound production and sound recording in all forms of broadcast, recorded, and live events, the IPS is widely respected for the support, training and networking opportunities it delivers. Its Fellowship programme is very selective – there are currently only 10 living people who hold this honour – as it is designed to recognise those who are ‘operationally outstanding in their area’.
