Raleigh, NC — Jan. 13, 2010 — NC State University has selected HaiVision Network Video’s Video Furnace end-to-end video-over-IP as a replacement for its CATV system. The Video Furnace system supports livecast of on-campus events into overflow areas, with video saved as a video-on-demand (VOD) asset or broadcast on the NC State television channel.
The Video Furnace System provides a secure system for encoding and distributing live video to computers and set-top boxes; for creating scheduled playback channels for enterprise TV and signage; for accessing course reserve material; and for recording content and delivering video on demand.
Through a series of pilot projects, NC State is using HaiVision technology to bring video into more than 30 academic and administrative buildings, with plans to deliver video to upwards of 100 such buildings, and approximately 100 television channels into student dormitories.
The use of the video over IP provides for a cost-effective solution by using a single campus wiring infrastructure, the IP network. HaiVision provides a standards-based solution that offers all the required functionality, tools, and middleware to provide content to students across campus through either a computer or a set-top box. The savings on infrastructure, time, and cost were significant.
