Hello everyone,


I don't know much about VoD/IPTV. I am interested in streaming/multicasting a tv channel over my LAN. What equipment/programs do I need to convert a TV signal (over the air/cable) to IP and multicast it out to a network?


Any help is appreciated!

What size of setup are you considering? I'm working one a system right now for two sites - one with 510 users and one with 150 users. we are looking to provide satellite TV to entertain staff in work camps out in the Sahara. The secret is getting multicast routing working which isn't scary and set up igmp snooping on the edge switches. Check out www.exterity.co.uk for information. I'm sure there are numerous companies who do this but these products aren't as scary expensive as some I've seen and work very well indeed.
