IPTV Service Hits Key Cost Point
New IPTV service evolution
IPTV (Internet Protocol TV – simply put TV over Internet) services have generally been reserved for large, financial or media sector businesses. This is primarily due to the historically high equipment and specialist installation costs. However it is widely recognised that many businesses would benefit from access to IPTV and other media services but not at any cost. Business IPTV services can offer companies a wide range of services including:
- Access to satellite and terrestrial TV (such as Freeview and Freesat) also pay / encrypted services on an IP network
- Viewing devices can include TV’s, laptops, tablets and smart phones
- It provides a platform to share the company’s media such as corporate videos and presentations
- An opportunity to bring corporate content to customers – as in digital signage
The ability to access live news information can be important, even critical for many businesses. For some businesses they need to provide background ‘entertainment’ services such as a TV in reception or maybe in a staff room.
Until recently these services would cost 10’s of 1000’s of £ – but recent innovations from BCi means that we have developed a highly integrated IPTV service that starts from £2,500. This brings the advantages of IPTV to many businesses for a fraction of the previous costs.
