Exterity to demonstrate how to create, play and control scaleable IPTV video content and solutions at ISE 2013

London, 16 January 2013: Exterity, the leading provider of IPTV communication solutions, today announces that it will be attending Integrated Systems Europe 2013 (ISE 2013) in Amsterdam this January (Stand D72 in Hall 11). Fully integrated, reliable, secure and flexible IPTV systems will form a central theme of the Exterity showcase at ISE. The company will demonstrate its extensive range of market-leading products, including upgraded products on show for the first time, with enhancements that reinforce the scalability, protection and continuity features of an IPTV system.

Solutions enhanced for security and reliability
Exterity will illustrate this via the demonstration of a live fully functioning end to end IPTV system, which will educate visitors on where its latest products sit on an IP network, from head end through to server. At the core of the demonstration will be examples of how each individual product within the Avedia product families function and how they come together to form a comprehensive solution for organisations to create, play and control their video content. Through demonstrations, presented daily once every half an hour by Colin Farquhar, CEO, Mike Allan, CTO, Dave Allan, Product Manager and Gordon Moore, Senior Support Engineer, Exterity will demonstrate to visitors how its advanced network of products can be replicated within their own businesses.

Following on from the announcement at last year's IBC that Exterity had become an authorised reseller of SecureMedia solutions, the company will be highlighting the content protection features of its current product range including demonstrations of the granular control over channel access enabled by its AvediaStream e2310 and e2320 Encoders.

"We're excited to be attending ISE this year as it will enable us to demonstrate the completeness of our integrated IPTV offering to the market," says Colin Farquhar, CEO of Exterity. "Content owners and our end users increasingly need to control access to and distribution of assets streamed across Local Area Networks. Our solutions have always ensured businesses using an Exterity system can anticipate and accommodate any control requirements in a granular, flexible and scaleable manner."

Minimising disruption
Another focus will be on reliability and redundancy, with a demonstration of what happens when a TVgateway or Encoder is pulled out of an Exterity chassis. This will be especially useful for organisations where the IPTV system is business critical or revenue generating, and want to observe how disruption can be minimised to both end users and systems administrators.

The AvediaStream c1110 monitor blade features twenty external LEDs providing an immediate visual indication of the status of each of the blade slots, fans and power supplies of the chassis, highlighting any problems before actual failure. The monitor blade will be able to communicate changes to the AvediaStream c1110 over the network protocol SNMP to allow SNMP management tools such as Exterity AvediaServer Director to inform administrators of the system status. The monitor blade is able to remotely power up and power down individual AvediaStream gateway or encoder modules in the chassis, reducing power consumption when, for example, the chassis contains redundant modules for any failover requirements an installation might require.

"System monitoring is a business critical process," says Farquhar. "Exterity products are well known for their robustness, and we are looking forward to showing off this demo to visitors and proving that the c1110 chassis is creating new levels of reliability in the market."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
