Eagle Broadband, Globecast partner to launch turnkey IPTV service
Eagle Broadband and GlobeCast have launched IPTVComplete, a turnkey IPTV services solution that enables telephone companies, municipalities, utilities, universities and real estate developers to deliver more than 200 channels of the high quality IPTV video services in United States.
IPTVComplete provides a large package of standard, premium and high-definition television programming, video-on-demand, pay per view and digital music available with full IP multicast video content rights for distribution over fiber, DSL and other private IP networks.
IPTV - the distribution of Internet Protocol-based television services over broadband networks - is the latest technological advancement for the multichannel distribution of broadcast television, video content and interactive entertainment services to the consumer in an all IP-format.
IPTVComplete can save $1 million to $2 million or more in up-front capital expenditures required to design, purchase and install an IP head-end, secure the necessary video content rights, provision circuits, aggregate content, operate and maintain the head-end, and the many other tasks required to launch and operate a competitive IPTV service offering.
By reducing or eliminating many of these complex and time-consuming tasks, IPTVComplete can reduce the time to market to launch a new IPTV service to under 60 days versus the industry average of 12 to 18 months.
The agreement combines Eagle Broadband’s IP video content rights, expertise delivering IP video services and IP set top boxes with GlobeCast’s carrier-class IP network and global IP satellite distribution capabilities.
