Back or to the Future with ONELAN’s New Carousel Mode
IPTV and Digital signage specialist ONELAN has added a Carousel mode to their IPTV Omni-Server.
Henley on Thames
The Omni-Server may be operated in a 'Carousel mode' enabling it to record all selected Channels (TV or Radio) for a given period of time in the past, present or future. For example the entire UK FreeView set of channels can be recorded simultaneously. As the disk becomes full, older programs are deleted. The operator can now identify programs from the past and move them to a 'keep' or 'transcode' folder for delivery to the Video Library Server for storage.
This is particularly useful where there is a requirement to record free-to-air programs in the past, present or future e.g in schools and colleges where educational programs are used to enhance the curriculum and engage students.
The feature can also be used by the Police where large volumes of live TV need to be recorded for later analysis, and corporates who want to monitor TV and radio for industry or company information and announcements.
The IPTV Omni-Server is a single box streaming solution for networked delivery and storage of video content via Ethernet networks. It provides a number of key functions within one appliance, firstly acting as an IPTV TV gateway which can take in Digital free-to-air TV broadcasts (DVB-T/Freeview or DVB-S/FreeSat) and re-broadcast out several TV channels onto a network. Any device on the network can then play back the live TV stream using a desktop PC TV software player, or a media player such as a ONELAN Net-Top-Box. A key benefit of this feature is the reduction in RF coaxial cable wiring required.
The IPTV Omni-Server is compatible with ONELAN NTB media players, and with its web browser interface is accessible from anywhere on a network.
