Described as a next-generation IPTV endpoint for the high-quality delivery of video and digital signage across the network, the EP6 is a multi-video advanced decoder with a fanless design which can output two 4K or quad-HD video streams, and the ability to render 4K graphics up to 2160p60. Additionally, the EP6 has PoE+ functionality, enabling the endpoint to be deployed easily across any network.
The manufacturer has also revealed new software for its Smart IP gateway, ChannelLink, adding RIST for point-to-point/contribution applications, HLS support for distribution and providing improved AES encryption performances for IPTV distribution projects. Designed for ease of use, the release reportedly provides an intuitive format for accessing IP video destination channels for operators. ChannelLink can be paired with IPTV solutions to achieve low-latency distribution to remote sites, offices and homes via the internet. It is now available in various deployment options to cater to specific requirements, including on-premise servers, virtual instances or the convenience of direct integration within the AWS Cloud via the new AMI.
