The airport's requirements were clear: The facility sought a dependable, scalable, and easily managed technology solution to broadcast high-quality video to its monitors, using the facility's existing IP infrastructure, with manageable bandwidth requirements and minimal administrative and maintenance overhead.
Of particular concern to YVR management was the need for a highly robust solution. Given the disruptive effects of even a brief system outage in a highly trafficked, high-security public facility, identifying a technology with superior uptime availability was a prime concern. YVR selected the VITEC MGW Carrier-Grade Platform as the ideal solution for streaming of IPTV programming at the airport facility.
The interoperability of the VITEC platform also enabled the VITEC and YVR IT implementation teams to integrate YVR's PC-based video suite with the MGW streams to enable on-screen digital signage, superimposed over the TV channel feeds streamed to airport monitors. This capability gave the airport an enhanced and easily managed communications channel for keeping airport patrons informed in real-time.
The VITEC 1100 also provides future-proof technology, allowing customers to easily transition from SD to HD encoding as requirements dictate, along with the ability to add mobile streaming capabilities. With experience in video delivery systems, VITEC is positioned to provide state-of-the-art IPTV solutions that are specifically designed to meet current and future needs of enterprise level clients.
