A new TV distribution installation recently designed for Croix-Rouge Française, the French Red Cross, has at its heart an Anevia Flamingo XS head-end.
The Anevia gateway was chosen and installed by Netlogon, a specialist in the integration and commissioning of IP-based networking systems. The new installation is located at the recently modernised La Ruche EHPAD nursing home in France. La Ruche has 86 rooms, each equipped with a connected Samsung Hospitality IP television receiver providing access to a large number of IPTV channels via the Flamingo XS. The system streams live multicast television directly to each room. It also provides about 40 channels of TV content from free-to-air digital terrestrial and satellite sources.
"Anevia's Flamingo technology was the logical choice for this turnkey project,” said Netlogon sales director Emmanuel Hardy. “It connects directly to smart TVs without requiring any additional interface or set-top box. Deployment, administration and operation were very easy. Thanks to the modular and scalable platform, the range of TV services can be expanded if or whenever this is required. Our own Netlogon Middleware, e-NHSTM, is also scalable, allowing easy addition of new features such as VoD, internal information pages, family portals, daily news or internal channels."
