Neulion serves private networks and expats
Neulion founder and CEO Chris Wagner calls the company's color-coded TV set-top box a "virtual DVD player." And like all successful products, it makes a wide range of people happy.
Would-be media companies can launch private networks to niche markets and outsource encoding, billing, content management, box inventory and reporting, which lets them concentrate on aggregating content and high-quality programming.
Viewers get a TV viewing experience from material moved straight from the public Internet to their sets. But instead of watching a TV station's programming, they watch their own chosen programming, with a remote control that remembers what they like and what they usually watch.
Private networks serving expatriate communities worldwide, including Africast, the Filipino ABS-CBN, China's KyLinTV and the Hawaiian Television Network, use Neulion's IPTV platform.
