Exterity targets BYOD video sector

Exterity, the UK based provider of enterprise technology for transmission of live, on-demand and recorded video over IP, will at NAB 2015 launch a new origin server acting as a gateway between multicast IPTV distribution and OTT streaming to mobile devices. The gateway will also serve fixed internet attached devices and Smart TVs, as well as corporate thin-client systems.

The new origin server is part of the firm’s wider portfolio aimed at enabling internal video services for enterprise BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) deployments. Exterity’s ‘Beyond the LAN’ range of products launched this year facilitates distribution of high quality video content to a range of screens across a different networks, including corporate wired LANs, Wi-Fi, enterprise WANs (Wide Area Networks) and the Internet. These products can be combined to build systems that cater for streams originating from various sources, such as cable, DTT, IP and satellite.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, the regional capital of Scotland in the UK, Exterity has cited MicroMarket Monitor forecasts that the BYOD market in North America will grow from $29.5 billion in 2014 to $89.6 billion by 2019, a CAGR of 24% from 2014 to 2019. With remote working becoming the norm, more and more businesses are seeking robust solutions to ensure remote staff, visitors and guests can access high quality video content while on the move, and many of these organizations are increasingly looking to expand the reach of their video communications beyond their internal IP network.

“As more and more workers use their own tablets and smartphones in the workplace, organizations need to be able to support BYOD communication to maximize productivity,” said Colin Farquhar, CEO, Exterity.
