“VITEC in 2022 is a much bigger company than ever before,” says VITEC’s SVP of Product, Eli Garten, “with one of the largest concentrations of video streaming and IPTV experts in our field. There is no doubt that with all the innovation and the exciting solutions we are all working on, there will be more Emmy awards coming our way in the future.”
Some of our customers have been with us for almost 15 years! This is a testament to the major impact VITEC has had and continues to have in the industry. Our loyal customer base is rewarded with continuous innovation and fresh approaches our solution produces in response to global marketplace challenges.
For IP video distribution in news and media facilities, the Award Committee looked at examples of some of VITEC’s key users of our solution. They learned how our middleware technology started as a basic single channel browser player for desktops, which we incepted back in 2006, and was quickly upgraded to a multi-channel browser player for Windows and Mac with set-top boxes and central management in 2007. The EZ TV platform has continued to evolve to a complete solution of user and content management, to any screen (Desktop, TV, Mobile, Video Wall), for local and remote users.
“In the context of the IPTV Distribution Solution,” says Garten, “VITEC’s EZ TV Platform has always been the gold standard, the ultimate solution and the most deployed and used technology by news and media companies. I am confident we will be able to maintain our leadership position for years to come.”
This Emmy is a huge honor and a confirmation from the best minds in the broadcast industry that VITEC has a major impact in the television, news and media domains.
This recognition of impact and excellence highlights the success we’ve had with incepting, creating, promoting, selling, producing, shipping, installing, supporting and innovating again and again to create the world’s best IPTV distribution solution for news and media organizations.
