MONTREAL, CANADA – November 15, 2016 – Haivision, a market leader in enterprise video and streaming solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with DISH to deliver secure digital television content to desktops and displays within enterprises. DISH is a leading provider of programming over satellite to consumers, hospitality, and businesses.
The unique solution between the DISH SMARTBOX® platform and Haivision’s IPTV system incorporates a security framework assuring content protection to each desktop and set-top box. Additionally, grouped and individual content viewership restrictions can be established by system administrators for every channel, user and display. The DISH SMARTBOX® reduces cost and saves space by serving up to 96 HD channels within a compact, energy efficient 5RU headend system. This combined solution protects content providers, simplifies enterprise IPTV deployments, and is substantially more economical than traditional IPTV architectures for enterprises.
“Delivering IPTV within enterprises to hundreds or thousands of viewers has presented a number of security and scalability challenges for companies,” said Alistair Chatwin, DISH director of product management. “The partnership with Haivision assures the integrity and simplicity of IPTV with DISH offering a great channel lineup, a small footprint and an affordable solution for enterprise customers.”
