Exterity, cont'd

“One of our key requirements was to implement a system that could flexibly and securely distribute video throughout our facility and that didn’t rely on coaxial cable. The beauty of the Exterity enterprise IP video system is that as long as there’s a network drop, it’s a location for a TV. Our staff can even watch content from their desktops if they don’t have a TV available,” Du Vall said.

The Result

With this new Exterity solution, First Rule can now cost-effectively distribute TV and video throughout its facility so that employees can stay on top of all news, in real time, and prospective clients have a clear understanding of First Rule’s offerings. First Rule can stream live and pre-recorded content to breakout areas and to individuals’ desktops and edit suites. Management can also monitor content and determine who can access what material, as well as perform company-wide actions centrally, such as turning off all TVs simultaneously from one location.

One feature that particularly stands out for Du Vall is the ability to create her own channels. “As a broadcast facility, we’re always streaming channels of our content. With the Exterity enterprise IP video solution in place, I can create my own demo channels, which is a great feature for us.”

“The installation at First Rule is proof that Exterity IP video solutions are perfectly suited to media companies of any size,” said Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity. “Our system has been designed to turn any source of content into IP streams, making it easy to deliver to any screen regardless of the display’s specifications. With post-production services taking place directly in the studio, First Rule also needs to ensure that all its content is completely secure when being distributed over the network, a feature that we provide through state-of-the-art content protection standards like Conditional Access and HDCPv2.”
