To create your own IPTV systems, there are many factors to consider. How can we choose a suitable solution for our project?
1. Signal source
How many ways? HD or SD?
Program source from Encoder? or from the satellite signal with free or encrypted?
2. End users
The end user are smart TV / set-top boxes, Android mobile phones, or tablets?
How many users are there?
3. Application Envoirement
Is it for a hotel? community, hospital, or others
What corresponding functions are required
Does the hotel need to integrate PMS, and does the hospital need to integrate nurse calling?
These will require confirming many details before building to estimate the cost of the project.
In fact, terminals QTY and the total bitrate of the channels determine which server is needed. we can calculate CPU utilization based on them.
So we made 4 IPTV solutions for optional. If you want to quickly get a solution quotation and give feedback to the customer as soon as possible, this can help you.
