What Is IPTV?

IPTV is essentially the broadcasting of multimedia content, videos or live television over an IP network. It can use the public Internet, a private local area network (LA) or a wide area network (WAN). An IPTV service can be provided on an IP compatible TV, mobile phone, tablet, laptop or PC and can be easily integrated into a video on demand solution.

IPTV is widely used by businesses and organizations to broadcast television in waiting rooms, reception areas and common rooms (often integrated with digital signage). Abonnement IPTV  is also a popular solution for providing television services in hotels, hospitals or residential properties.

Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is a system whereby television services are provided using a suite of Internet protocols over a packet switched network such as a LAN or the Internet, rather than being provided by traditional terrestrial, satellite and cable television formats.

IPTV systems can be classified into three main groups:

  • live television with or without interactivity linked to the current program;
  • delayed television: catch-up television (replay of a television program broadcast a few hours or a few days ago), television with “watch from the start” function (replay of the current program from the start);
  • video on demand (VOD): browse a catalog of videos unrelated to television programming.

IPTV service is defined as the secure and reliable provision of video entertainment and related services to subscribers. These services may include, for example, live television, video on demand (VOD) and interactive television. These services are provided over a packet switched agnostic network, which uses the IP protocol to transport audio, video and control signals. Unlike Internet video, with IPTV deployments, network security and performance are tightly managed to ensure a superior entertainment experience, which creates an attractive business environment for content providers, advertisers and customers.
