NetworkTV Packages, Upgrades & Accessories

We have introduced a number of pre-configured NetworkTV Live starter packages that combine NetworkTV software and hardware components.

Each package contains everything you need for delivering and playing live streams.

In addition to NetworkTV Live packages, we can provide an enhanced solution that turns your NetworkTV solution into a Content Management System (CMS) giving you additional functionality including recording and archiving of live and pre-recorded video content as well as Video-On-Demand.

The benefit of our pre-configured packages is that you don’t have to spend time trying to understand different components, part numbers and what’s needed when configuring an ideal solution – nor be concerned about the geographical location, future expansion and scalability.
