Exterity ships 750th TV gateway
October 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsLondon, 19th October, 2007: Exterity, a specialist in network IPTV, has today announced that it has reached a significant company milestone with the shipment of its 750th DVB to IP TV Gateway. Now in its second generation, the IPTV LAN distribution technology has been installed in many corporates, educational establishments and hospitality venues to stream live TV and radio across an IP network. Organisations such as Reuters, QVC, Matthew Boulton College and SAB Miller are benefiting from the cost-effective alternative to a coaxial system.
Exterity’s TV Gateway enables users to plug digital terrestrial (DVB-T) and digital satellite services (DVB-S) into a LAN to distribute live broadcast TV and radio across a building or campus network. Available as a stand-alone idaptor unit with one or two DVB inputs or as a 1u high rack mountable tridaptor that will stream up to six DVB multiplexes, the TV Gateways help organisations make the most of existing bandwidth to deliver any content such as news, entertainment, information and teaching material to any end device.
“Over the past three years the success of our TV Gateway has been down to three main factors; high quality products; our partners and the ability to meet market demand,” commented Colin Farquhar, CEO, Exterity. “More and more companies want to use their IP networks to deliver content, TV and radio to users and our TV Gateways offer a cost effective, easy to manage solution that can be deployed in a matter of hours. Through working with our partners we have been able to deliver a top class service which has enabled us to grow our market share.”
“To continue our success, we plan to further to develop and enhance our TV Gateways to main our leadership position in the market. We are also set to introduce a suite of HD-ready products including TV Gateways that will future-proof any IPTV deployment through the ability to deliver and receive HD-quality TV, video and multimedia content over IP to any HD compatible end point,” added Farquhar.

Exterity’s core technology, in-socket™, allows display appliances, such as televisions, to be connected directly to wall-mounted iSockets to get direct and easy access to all available digital media and services.
Exterity is based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
