Velocix Broadcast Optimizer

The introduction of High Definition TV and multiple simultaneous video streams per home raise new challenges for IPTV service providers and cable operators. End users may suffer a degraded quality of experience if no specific action is taken. Visual distortions may occur frequently and the time to switch channels may increase to an unacceptable four to five seconds. In addition to the risk of losing customers, these problems increase the number of calls to customer support centers and the associated costs. The Velocix Broadcast Optimizer minimizes the time to switch channels and prevents visual distortions, providing a superior quality of experience for end users. This product suite operates with a wide range of the IPTV middleware platforms available in the market.
