There are two ways to process IPTV information over a network. Broadcast or Multicast and Unicast

Take the example of installing an IPTV solution in a hotel.

– All the hotel rooms receive TV channels, information such as the weather, etc. This signal is broadcast in Broadcast or Multicast (broadcast to multiple IPs).

– On the other hand if a customer buys a film on VoD, the signal will be transmitted in Unicast (broadcasting to a single IP)

As broadcasting is done in multicast, it is important to be able to manage bandwidth as well as possible. To do this, 2 main formats are used. MPEG-2 and standard MPEG-4. The latter is mainly used because of its better performance.

For the user, IPTV equipment is based on a Set Top Box (equivalent to the Satellite receiver) and is now arriving on the market with connected TVs with integrated SetTopBox. The Set Top Box receives the data, reassembles the packets and decodes them to broadcast them on TV or any other medium such as PC, tablets, etc.

On the supplier side, the necessary equipment is a little more complex and requires more elements to allow the system to operate whether in Broadcast / Multicast or Unicast.

A streamer receives the signal (analog or digital), assembles it, encodes it and divides it into packets that can be broadcast over an IP network, allowing them to be routed to the destination (s).

The signal then passes to the IPTV server which will be responsible for encrypting the data and broadcasting it to authenticated users.
