EngagePHD™ provides complete flexibility for IPTV based digital signage solutions. The IPTV feature supports a wide range of hardware options and hybrid systems. Depending on the current infrastructure, EngagePHD™ can be implemented in many different ways and work side by side:
- Multicast Network Stream: EngagePHD™ supports any UDP or TCP based multicast stream. The Multicast Network Stream can be positioned anywhere in a Layout so you can wrap any content around the TV feed. This method is supported on Samsung SSP and LG webOS commercial displays, however, if you need to use external DMP’s, then BrightSign and Windows based players are also supported.
- RF (Coax): The RF is uniquely supported on Samsung SSP Commercial Displays (North America Only). TV content can be distributed via RF and each Samsung screen can be programmed to receive all the channels that are available. Furthermore, just like the Multicast Network Stream, users can design a Layout and have this TV source as an option. In addition, we’ve added a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) solution for sports fans in a suite or a visitor to a corporate office building etc. The BYOD solution allows the user to change the channel from their own smart phone without affecting any L-Bar wrap style content.
- HDMI External Source: Samsung SSP and LG webOS allows the support of an external set-top box e.g. Comcast, DirecTV, Sky, Virgin Media etc. to be connected via HDMI. EngagePHD™ is connected to the HDMI port and users can design a Layout to incorporate an L-Bar style wrap containing other content.
The above options are some of the different ways in which we can deliver an IPTV type solution. Each screen is uniquely IP addressable meaning you can show the same content or showcase unique content on every screen. Regardless of your needs, EngagePHD™ can be used to manage your Digital Signage based IPTV networks.
