Exterity Targets the Enterprise with Secure IP Video

Exterity, a UK based provider of enterprise IPTV technologies for secure distribution of live, on-demand and recorded video over IP, will demonstrate its complete IP video product portfolio at IBC 2015. The main focus is on the enterprise with products that protect content as it is distributed across corporate networks.

This involves integration of CAS (conditional access systems) to limit access to content solely to those with the rights within the enterprise. Then built-in Digital Rights Management (DRM) from ArrisSecure Media and other standards-based security technologies ensure that organizations meet the increasingly stringent content protection demands of broadcasters and content owners.

At the same time Exterity will at IBC demonstrate for the first time its ‘Beyond the LAN’ range of products that enable broadcasters, production houses and proAV (professional Audio Video) specialists to discover how they can stream content to a variety of devices over WAN, Wi-Fi, the Internet or via a Content Delivery Network. Exterity’s new AvediaStream transcoders enable enterprises to transcode, transrate, transpose, transcast and scale video content. Combined with the Exterity Origin Server, the system enables organizations to make video content consistently available across their HQ and regional offices, giving staff access to multiple news channels to inform decision making. It also enables visitors and guests to receive information and entertainment on their mobile devices while on the premises.

“At IBC, we will demonstrate how our solutions make any TV and video streams available over the organization’s LAN, wireless network, WAN and Internet,” said Colin Farquhar, CEO, Exterity. “Once on the network, channels can be displayed on TVs or directly onto desktop monitors and laptops. When multiple locations are involved, or when viewers are mobile, Exterity can also deliver the same TV and video content and experience to any compatible device.”

Exterity claims to be one of the few companies that can legitimately encode and stream directly from an HDMI video source. To do this it has embedded software based on HDCPv2, the international standard for content protection across an IP network from source to display. HDCP is a specification originally developed by Intel to protect video across digital interfaces. The aim is to stop HDCP-encrypted content from being played on unauthorized devices that have been modified to copy HDCP content. Before sending data, a transmitting device checks that the receiver is authorized to receive it. If so, the transmitter encrypts the data to prevent eavesdropping as it flows to the receiver.
