IVT Announces New Digital Signage Module called MPTV

MediaPlatform, the Industry Standard for Webcast Construction has added on a new module (January 30, 2006)

Interactive Video Technologies, IVT, the premier supplier of scalable software for webcasting, is pleased to announce our latest module for Digital Signage:  MediaPlatform Television, or MPTV. MPTV is an optional module of MediaPlatform that gives clients the ability to create and manage ?channels of scheduled content for display on HDTVs or computer screens.  These channels can be viewed on plasma screens at full screen and high resolution.  Scheduled content can include playlists of content with set durations or at set times.  Additionally MPTV includes the ability to preempt a channel with ?urgent content, messages or live video.

Organizations wishing to deploy digital signage applications at corporate, retail, manufacturing or branch sites may want to tap into the expertise provided by a webcasting company with a uniquely long heritage, Interactive Video Technologies.  With many years of experience and a feature rich, easy to use product, clients can rely on a system that is fully supported by a well-known organization.  MPTV can be centrally managed and supported with screens at any location worldwide.

With MPTV for Digital Signage, users can have plasma screens connected to a networked PC.  Content is produced in an external fashion and delivered to the network.  The offering will then schedule and distribute the reformatted content to the plasma screens.  This is done via a Play List, which can be remotely changed at will.  The plasma screens can be managed from a central site and different groups of screens can be tuned into different channels.  MPTV provides a solution that is easy, powerful and provides flexible control over the content being displayed.  Content can be from varied sources, such as television content, slides, rich media presentations, and live or on-demand webcast content.  Content can include Flash Presentations, MediaPlatform Webcasts, video presentations, live television and web sites.  Clients can configure scrolling information like stock tickers and weather forecasts.

MPTV is easily managed by logging in securely with any browser, creating a new channel or editing an existing one.  The new channel URL is automatically generated for viewers to watch the channel.  The channel is managed by naming and describing it, content is set up and added to the channels schedule.  Unless it is modified or interrupted by the administrator, the variable content runs indefinitely.

Organizations with an interest in MPTV can contact IVT direct, or one of our business partners including Akamai, Cisco Systems, GFI Informatics, Time2Market and IBM.
