After HDTV, digital cable and satellite service, IPTV technology is now changing the television industry enormously. This new science presents a creative system of presenting television programmes to your televisions. IPTV or Internet Protocol Television has arrived at last and it is being driven forward by the rich telecommunications industry. It will offer better interactivity and will also enhance competition levels in so far as the sale of TV units go.
Internet Protocol Television is all about generating a solution that is capable of receiving and also displaying video streams which are encoded as a variety of IP packets. Most people that have viewed videos on their computer screens could have already made use of IPTV in a very general sense. When most people think about this specific service, they regularly think that it is about watching brilliant quality television programmes whose pictures are smooth and of a really high resolution and there is also no lag in the picture.
To start with, IPTV technology was only known to the phone companies but at this moment TV companies are joining in and are willing to offer benefits such as data, voice and video. In order to make excellent use of IPTV technology, it is necessary to have a set top box which will be used to connect the DSL line in your home or office and which also reassembles the packets that have been sent.
A PC or laptop can also do precisely the same job but the problem is that not too many people have an additional PC that they can insert next to their television sets. This is why the set top box is used.
Any industry today embracing technologies such as IPTV and professional Audio Visual solutions are investing sensibly for the future.
In this crazy world of technological innovations, new sciences will most likely destroy traditional markets and will create some new ones in their place. Voice over IP or VoIP is an example of these kinds of new technologies and so too is IPTV technology. The fact is, a good number of people believe that television is going to change substantially. The new face of technology may well be a great deal more entertaining and personalised and there will be much more information available and also better connectivity as well.
Currently the Internet Protocol Television business is divided into different segments that include things like TELCOS/ISP and IPTV on Public Internet Networks along with Hospitality. It won’t be wrong to determine that this innovative science as well as Broadband Multimedia Services is capable of crossing the limitations of satellite mediums and cable. It can offer limitless opportunities to distribute television and/or video content.
