Mitchell, SD – Nearly 200 attendees at the annual Innovative Systems User Group meeting were greeted with the news by company CEO Roger Musick of a new IPTV Set Top Box with technology that will slash installation costs.
Musick announced a new wireless 4K Set Top Box, the IS-5112W, that is also an IPTV Access Point for up to four Wi-Fi Station STBs that can be IS-5112Ws. According to Musick, “Our entry into the STB marketplace is generated by customer demand for additional options and increased reliability in Wi-Fi deployments, and it is based
upon the Reference Design Kit (RDK) model made popular by vendors and service providers globally.”
The IS 5112W puts the IPTV Wi-Fi on its own dedicated Wi-Fi radio channel which is actively managed in real time by the Innovative Systems middleware. By creating a more reliable Wi-Fi network, this new STB will reduce wired home installs, allowing service providers a much faster return on investment.
Encryption Support for Secure TV
Innovative Systems has integrated with the conditional access and digital rights management CA/DRM company SecureTV and will provide encryption and key server support on the InnoStream™ hardware platform. Musick says the goal of this integration is to significantly reduce a service provider’s encryption expenses. Another advantage of this new service is the capability of providing HLS encrypted video for smartphones and tablets without the need for additional hardware.
