VITEC Amps Up the Collegiate Sports Profile at 2017 CSVA Conference
“Colleges are not only wrestling with how to modernize their existing sports facilities and improve the fan experience by affordably delivering high-quality, entertaining video feeds to their displays, but also how to meet the requirements of future facilities today,” said Joe Walsh, VITEC's sales director for sports and entertainment venues. “VITEC’s EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage platform leverages the organization’s common IP backbone to deliver broadcast-grade, customizable, and eye-catching video streams and revenue-building digital signage campaigns. As new facilities are added and created, they can affordably be incorporated into the display network leveraging the powerful scalability of the EZ TV platform.”
A truly integrated IPTV and digital signage platform, VITEC's EZ TV is the ideal solution for sports venues, allowing stadiums and arenas to seamlessly and cost-effectively stream high-quality live and on-demand video, as well as campaign content, over their existing IP infrastructure. Users benefit from low-latency playback, real-time updates to the electronic program guide, video-on-demand (VOD) content with simultaneous updates of new assets, time-shifted TV, live video access from PCs and mobile devices, and user-controlled mosaic viewing of multiple channels in any format, including H.264 and HEVC up to 4K.
The integrated digital signage features offer easy-to-use signage authoring, administration, and analytics.
