Optibase Provides IPTV Systems to NASA Flight Research Center

Optibase has deployed its Optibase MGW 1100 carrier-grade IPTV streaming platforms at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif., a flight research and test facility for aerospace technology.

The MGW 1100 uses an Optibased PC soft player application and display manager to stream H.264 video and audio content over the internal IP NASA base network. The content includes TV channels such as news and weather channels, as well as NASA-generated channels such as live flight test footage and other events.

The system is controlled by Optibase's Cluster Manager, which enables intuitive and simple management of multiple Media Gateway platforms and hundreds of channels from one centralized application. The sOptibase Display Manager enables the display of multiple video streams on a single PC screen. In addition to PC streaming, the content will be streamed to set-top boxes for display on TV monitors and plasma screens across the base.

Adam Schadle, president of Optibase Inc. said, "We are delighted with the success of our IPTV system at NASA. Optibase prides itself on providing a complete end-to-end IPTV solution, which is tailored to the customer's specific requirements."

Headquartered in Herzlia, Israel, Optibase operates through its fully owned subsidiary in Mountain View, Calif.
