Playout247 and VisionIPTV Partner to Launch Investment Program

Sep 16, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Playout247 and Vision IPTV, both sister companies of one another, announced the beginning of a major investment program in studio and broadcast technology supported by capacity increases.

Four existing studio facilities have been upgraded to HD, and a further two large new HD studios with full virtual set support and robotic cameras, are to be integrated into Playout247's broadcast TV infrastructure to facilitate original content production.

Additionally, an increase in channel capacity will allow Vision IPTV, which is launching a platform that provides existing and new-broadcasters with everything required to deliver commercial broadcasting online, to capitalize on the shift to internet delivered TV.

"This investment will double our satellite playout capacity to 60 HD channels and enables us to offer broadcast standard playout and monitoring for up to 200 IPTV channels, each streamed in four bitrates: HD, SD, webcast and mobile," said Chairman of Playout247, Matt Vidmar.

"We've developed our own internet television ventures which have shown that there is a real market, in terms of revenue and profit, for these services, and we are now experiencing interest in our IPTV services from global blue-chip networks," said John Mills, Managing Director of Vision IPTV.

Playout247 is a provider of automated networked broadcast transmission services for all types of broadcasting: Satellite, Cable and Internet. Services include live TV studio facilities, playout, and signal distribution to all teleports worldwide and global internet TV streaming.

Vision IPTV provides solutions to clients wanting to create TV and video services for connected audiences worldwide. VisionIPTV platform can be customized for clients and supports all current commercial models from subscription, pay-as-you-go to PPV and advertiser funded.
