The VITEC EZ TV Enterprise Grade IPTV System is a comprehensive solution for high quality delivery, recording, and management of live and on-demand video over IP networks. It offers advanced viewing options, collaboration, and distribution tools - all packed in an easy-to-use web browser interface.
The system can be seamlessly integrated with any IT environment and deployed on all types of networks such as LAN, WAN, and wireless networks. With EZ TV’s modular architecture, operators can deploy and maintain an advanced, scalable IPTV solution that offers video viewing, sharing, collaboration, archiving, and distribution capabilities on any device.
The EZ TV allows operators and users to create, store, view, stream, and share HD and SD videos from any source, anytime, anywhere and to any screen (desktops, laptops, TV’s, and mobile devices). The system comprises of two main Web interfaces. The first is the EZ TV Administration interface - a centralized, powerful interface used for setting up video services, managing users, adding content, configuring permissions, and tracking usage. The second interface is the EZ TV Player – a user friendly video player that supports various video workflows from basic viewing through multi-screen mosaic grid layouts to advanced recording and time shifted TV.
To ensure full compatibility with civilian and federal secure environments, the EZ TV is designed to conform to the most stringent network and information assurance security standards. The system supports all major MPEG standards including the HEVC and H.265 compression technologies. The centralized EZ TV Administration Portal web-interface is accessible from anywhere on the network and provides the operator with the ability to create content listings manually or configure the server to automatically look for IPTV content on the network using Session Announcement Protocol (SAP) discovery feature.
The User Management engine provides operators with a visual topology view of all local Domains, Trusted Domains, Organizational Units (OU’s), and Groups and Users that exist on the network. A drag-and-drop interface is used for assigning live video, recorded content, and application features to groups or individual users eliminating the need to use complex routing filters, networks access lists, and firewall rules to regulate access to IPTV and FMV content. The system also offers redundancy, clustering, multi-site synchronization and backup features through the EZ TV administration portal.
The EZ TV System also monitors users actions and content consumption, offering the administrators valuable data about content consumption, user trends, network bandwidth utilization statistics, and event logging for operator’s and/or users actions for traceability, billing, or other needs. The EZ TV’s Set-Top-Box extension enables full control of your live and recorded videos from personal TV’s and displays installed in public areas.
Using the standard-based IP set-top-boxes with the integrated middleware, the individual users can get TV experience on their personal screens with EZ TV’s intuitive on-screen graphic interface. Advanced features include navigation through channel guide with programing information and locally injected metadata, viewing live streams, recording current and future shows, and VOD playback.
The EZ TV’s Remote Control application provides you with full control of any display or group of displays around the building or in remote sites from your computer’s browser or handheld device. You can simply map your displays onto EZ TV’s Remote Control database, assign logical names and optional description to each TV, and start commanding your TV monitors remotely over IP.
You can push new content to specific displays, tune to any stream, control volume levels, turn TV power on/off, and view real-time status of each TV monitor on one visual interface accessible from anywhere using a browser.
