The European Space Agency has employed VITEC's EZ TV IPTV Platform and real-time IPTV streaming appliances to upgrade the agency's capabilities for managing and disseminating mission imagery and full-motion video within the European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany.
The solution includes VITEC's on-premises EZ TV Platform for managing content, user access rights, and video workflows; MGW Series premium H.264 encoding and streaming appliances, and IPTV end-points featuring low-latency playback and remote management.
"The VITEC EZ TV IPTV Platform was the exact solution we were looking for," said Joerg Seifert, OCC support engineer at Telespazio VEGA Deutschland for ESOC.
"Our day-to-day operations are very demanding and constantly evolving based on new incoming information from our satellite feeds and changing user permissions and roles. With EZ TV, we are not boxed into the capabilities of an IPTV product that is not scaled to our needs or robust enough to handle the constant demands for our video streams."
"ESOC's application needs were a great fit for VITEC," added Andreas Nitschke, general manager, Germany, at VITEC. "We design our products with performance, reliability, and compression efficiency in mind.
"The combination of our streaming appliances with our enterprise-grade EZ TV IPTV Platform creates a powerful, scalable solution for real-time, secure delivery of mission-critical video for the most demanding environments."
