European Space Agency Improves Live Video Workflows With VITEC EZ TV IPTV Streaming Platform

VITEC's Award-Winning EZ TV Platform and Hardware-Based Encoding Appliances Deliver Mission-Critical Satellite Imagery Throughout the Agency's Network

PARIS -- Sept. 12, 2017 -- VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions, today announced that the European Space Agency has deployed 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 that take any video source, including those from computer workstations with non-standard resolutions; and rugged, ultra-quiet IPTV end-points featuring low-latency playback and remote management.


"The VITEC EZ TV IPTV Platform was the exact solution we were looking for. 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," said Joerg Seifert, OCC support engineer at Telespazio VEGA Deutschland for ESOC. "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. VITEC's powerful, reliable, and silent encoding appliances, IPTV experience, and customized rights management is seamless and dynamic."

Ideal for mission-critical applications, VITEC's EZ TV is the solution of choice for organizations seeking to manage critical live and on-demand content and offers users convenient access to video content from any computer, TV, or mobile device -- all with advanced access controls and content protection using AES 256-bit encryption.

"ESOC's application needs were a great fit for VITEC," said 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."
