Inlet Technologies, the leader in innovative solutions for digital media preparation, announced today that 24/7 HD cable television network, WealthTV, has selected Inlet to deliver live, linear broadcast television to international subscribers over the Internet using Inlet’s SpinnakerTM streaming appliance. Subscribers will have 24/7 access to WealthTV content through their TVs via IP-based set top boxes, computers, and/or mobile devices including the Apple® iPhone® and iPadTM.

WealthTV’s audience consists of more than 10 million subscribers in the US and Caribbean. “The Spinnaker solution for live streaming helps us expand our reach to a broader international audience easily and cost effectively,” explained Charles Herring, president, WealthTV. “Based on the high praise we heard about Spinnaker from both the industry and Inlet’s customers, we are confident in its ability to deliver exceptional HD quality content in multiple formats to multiple devices. Trying to accomplish that with a traditional satellite broadcast would have been a very complex and expensive proposition.”

“Similar to many of our customers, WealthTV is tapping the power of three screens – including delivery to set top boxes (STB), computers and mobile devices – in order to create new monetization opportunities and reach new customers,” said Michael Barros, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Inlet Technologies. “Inlet optimizes the quality of experience for these new platforms, and thus transforms linear programming providers and the broader telecommunications industry into a broadband world.”

A variety of WealthTV subscription options including a 24/7 feed, HD feed, VOD and even 3D will be available to international viewers. For more information about WealthTV video subscription options, contact Sarah Nunez, sarah.nunez@wealthtv.com.
