Shanghai BesTV IPTV Headend Project

The new media company BesTV under Shanghai Media Group (SMG) is one of the globaly best-known brands in IPTV industry. NDT has been contracting to build the coding system platform for the company’s IPTV Headend and providing the company with ERICSSON MPEG-4AVC EN5930 encoder and IPLEX video processing platform and IPTV platform maintenance agency service at the same time.

Up to now, NDT has provided more than 30 IPLEX video processors with SD and HD MPEG-4 AVC coding modules for BesTV IPTV platform, and has live broadcasted more than 100 video programs for the company, which offered more than 1.5 million BesTV users from all over the county the best HD experience.

An IPLEX video processor is in a compact 1RU Chassis, which has as many as 8 MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC encoders, transcoders or PiP encoders with professional quality and 2 built-in Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. An IPLEX video processor can relay the same program to multiple network interfaces, such as GigE、ATM or ASI in streaming which makes it very easy for an IPLEX video processor to support a mixed network environment. What’s more, an IPLEX video processor can also be used to support IPTV’s advanced functions, such as low-resolution coding, generating PiP service with low bit-rate, and realizing IP multiple broadcast directly from this Chassis.

A highlight of this platform is that the modular design and forward-looking technology of this platform allow the service provider to improve its function and constantly add new services, and avoid costly headend upgrades, all of them are the reasons why BesTV has chosen IPLEX video processing platform for so long times.
